WE TAKE CARE OF OUR PLANET
Being a sustainability-oriented company is an ethical behavior, a moral commitment and a “license” of responsibility that we don’t want to ignore.
The path is not at all trivial because it requires the adoption of behaviors functional to the achievement of precise environmental, social and economic standards. The awareness that natural resources are limited and that safeguarding the planet is a duty towards future generations, motivate our commitment to research and selection of the best technologies and raw materials. Attention to environmental issues has always been an integral part of our corporate culture. ITP is particularly attentive to the processing of the product for the relationship it has not only with human health and well-being but also with the environment.
We have decided to invest in the field of eco-sustainability and traceability by obtaining the OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 Class 2 CERTIFICATION.
Through this certification all the yarns are tested to guarantee the absence of substances harmful to health. A periodic control system by the authorized national body guarantees the continuous verification of compliance with the ecological parameters that have become fundamental for all the major international brands and for anyone who cares about the health and safeguarding of our planet.
Membership of the OEKO-TEX® brand today also represents an assumption of responsibility towards the “Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC)” project, an initiative of international brands aimed at eliminating dangerous chemical products from textile production processes within 2020.
ITP meets the requirements listed in Article XVII of the REACH Regulation.
REACH is a European Union regulation concerning the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemical substances. The main purpose of the regulation is to improve the knowledge of the dangers and risks arising from chemical substances and at the same time maintain and strengthen the competitiveness and innovative capacities of the European chemical industry.
Chinese legislation GB/T
ITP has adhered to the Chinese legislation GB/T. The GB standards are the Chinese national standards issued by the Standardization Administration of China (SAC), are applied nationally throughout China and define the requirements related to product safety and quality.
In 2019 ITP obtained the FSC CERTIFICATION for VISCOSE. The FSC certification is a specific international certification for the forestry sector and the products – wood and non-wood – derived from forests.
The FSC certification mark guarantees that the entire wood-paper supply chain certified for its standards derives from an environmentally friendly, socially useful and economically sustainable forest management. There are two types of FSC certification: the FSC Forest Management certification for forest owners and managers and the FSC Chain of Custody (CoC) certification for forest products processing and / or trade companies, among these companies that produce viscose obtained from the “pulp” of wood, used in spinning for the production of fabrics for clothing, underwear and furniture.
GRS CERTIFICATION for POLYESTER and NYLON.
The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) is promoted by Textile Exchange, a non-profit organization that promotes responsible and sustainable development in the textile sector at an international level. With this standard, Textile Exchange recognizes the fundamental importance of recycling for the growth of a sustainable production and consumption model, aims to favor the reduction of resource consumption (virgin raw materials, water and energy) and to increase the quality of recycled products. All products that are composed of at least 20% pre-consumer and post-consumer recycling materials can be GRS certified.
