Road to Zero: Our responsibility for people and the environment
Acting in an economical and sustainable way are two sides of the same coin for us. That’s why we place the highest demands on the ecological profile of our production and always optimise our production processes in line with the latest findings.
That applies to all our locations around the world: As a responsible global player, we guarantee the same high environmental standards worldwide to ensure fair, sustainable and safe production at all times.
Always a step ahead in environmental protection
AMANN participates in “Detox Our Future”, an international campaign run by the environmental organisation Greenpeace. An extended list of criteria (Annex 6) was developed in this regard for the certification STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, which is fulfilled by all Mettler sewing threads. Compared to the currently used test catalogue (Annex 4), the limit values have been tightened, particularly for the so-called “detox substance groups”. Certification in accordance with Article 6 is not yet mandatory – AMANN is the first sewing and embroidery thread manufacturer in the world to accept the detox obligation of Greenpeace and (re-)certifies all relevant threads accordingly.
Together with our suppliers, we take responsibility for sustainable action and promise to be extremely careful, so that all necessary safety measures are put in place and no harmful chemicals are used. All AMANN as well as Mettler sewing threads including the finish are made entirely from non-hazardous substances – so that they can be used safely with no risk to people or the environment.
We believe in taking responsibility. That’s why we cooperate closely with our suppliers to put all necessary safety measures in place and to guarantee the safety of our chemicals. STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® identifies the environmental compatibility of the Mettler products.
Constantly ensuring our high quality standards is an important part of the AMANN philosophy. At the same time, we are committed to and motivated by our customers’ expectations for performance, reliability, technical expertise as well as the quality and environmental compatibility of our threads. Various certifications prove that quality management, process safety, environmental protection and sustainability are the compass points of our everyday work – from the fitting out of our locations to every single step in production.
Handling natural resources carefully and respectfully is a matter of course in our day-to-day business. We ensure that everything we do at all our locations is sustainable in order to reduce the quantities of energy and water we consume as well as the emissions and waste we produce. Resource and environmentally friendly production on the one hand and our own high environmental standards on the other reduce the burden on people and the environment to a minimum.
We have our compliance with quality, safety and environmental protection requirements certified through strict ISO certifications.
