"if you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together" - Milano 11 febbraio 2016

Sustainability of textile supply chain


Confindustria Toscana Nord is proud to announce its subscription to Detox campaign, a Greenpeace project whose purpose is to eliminate substances which can be dangerous to man and environment at the beginning of the supply chain. Confindustria Toscana Nord has become first in the world in bringing of a group of textile companies to adhere to Detox commitments.

In February 2016, for the first time in the world, 20 manufacturing companies of the Prato district and members of Confindustria Toscana Nord, endorsed the Detox commitments and acknowledged how important it is to eliminate dangerous substances from the textile production cycle. In this group, in March, we have added other 7 companies, thereby significantly increasing the volumes of the products concerned by the commitment Detox.

Supported and led by the association, the companies have started their improvement process through the elimination of such substances according to the transparency, prevention and precaution principles of the Detox campaign and have accepted the media challenge of the Greenpeace campaign which has rapidly changed the attention and the contents of the great fashion brands’ terms of contracts.

Companies of the textile district which follow the Detox commitment represent different parts of the textile supply chain, such as factories producing yarn, fabric and raw materials, dyeing plants, yarn or fabric finishing companies, producers of chemicals for the textile industry.
