As a strong player within the textile industry, we want to take our part of the responsibility for the current situation of our industry’s environmental performance. TANATEX is a company with a longstanding history to be proud of. In order to keep that legacy alive into future generations, sustainability and the conscious production of our products have been of major importance within our company strategy and is strongly embedded into our company culture.

Our environment is getting into motion, and we want to have an active part in that evolving movement. We therefore choose to be visible about our activities in and around our production facilities as well as about our products. To show that visibility we have decided to start reporting on those activities. We see this as a tool to get an effective conversation going with our stakeholders about sustainability and conscious production in order to improve ourselves, each other and our industry.

We are proud to present our first sustainability report!

In a world which is faced with more and more questions we hope to provide the right answers. To you, your customers, nature and humanity through our solutions, consulting, and – most importantly – our people.
