Sharing the responsibility to achieve a better world, Tintex Textiles has joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative. By sharing common conviction with thousands of like-minded companies Tintex – as a business reality constantly striving for a responsible change in textiles – is concretely contributing to a more stable and inclusive global market.

The United Nations Global Compact initiative is a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices. It is a real demonstration of the 'Naturally Advanced' ongoing commitment to responsible business action. Expertly controlled processing, and advanced dyeing and finishing solutions drive material innovation to create responsible supply chains to transform fashion systems.

“Being part of the UN Global Compact means to publically commit with all the principles that are the basis of our business," Ana Silva Tavares, head of sustainability.

Tintex's department of sustainability optimises fashion solutions that not only provide high performance nature based textiles, but enable Tintex to rise as a global leader striving towards superior responsible fashion systems that are transparent and fully traceable throughout the supply chain.

"We strongly believe that transparency and traceability are paramount in today’s business landscape, indeed, we have established a framework for the entire complex supply chain, products, processes and suppliers. To achieve qualitatively better and less impactful results is crucial to implement a structured strategical plan that foresees innovative approach, smart sourcing and ongoing research and development continuous experimentation, shared and interconnected internal actions and the ability to move and to react faster to the market needs," Tintex said in a press release.

“Working and challenging ourselves every day we get to know that a real change can only start from a mindset change – which is clearly the most difficult thing to do for a company but definitely the most important for a long-term success," continued Tavares. (RR)
