A campaign by Greenpeace
Hispano Tex is proud to inform that we have recently subscribed to the worldwide DETOX initiative as part of our corporate responsibility program.
The Detox commitment aims for the progressive reduction of pollution emissions within all industrial production processes, and has been joined by brands like ALDI, LIDL in regards to home textiles, amongst other enterprises. This initiative is supported by a coalitions of NGOs organizations which form the Green Choice Alliance, to promote a green global supply chain so that manufacturing enterprises can exercise their purchasing power to make green choices, following CGA consumer initiatives. GreenPeace is one of the major NGOs partner of the Detox program, as well as IPE (Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs) in China. The latter one has enables an online platform with a World Pollution Map as well as a DDBB of all suppliers and manufacturers willing to participate in the Detox initiative.
Hispano Tex is strongly committed to sustainability so when we learnt about it, we immediately contacted the Green Choice Alliance and they sent us auditors to supervise measurements of chemicals and production processes for the last couple of months. Now you can find us listed on the IPE platform in this link: http://wwwold.ipe.org.cn/en/pollution/discharge_detox.aspx, using the search option. You will be able to check all the types of emissions we produce and discover our production processes are already mostly within the DETOX standards. Yet we are aiming to implement further improvements to make our production centers even more environmentally friendly than they already are before 2020, which is the directive given by GreenPeace in these regards.
In the fashion scope, worldwide brands have joined into the Detox Catwalk aiming to promote free-toxic fashion. In Home textiles the initiative is still general, yet Green Peace parameters are the same for all brands, producers and manufacturers.
