To achieve this, we look closely at each and every stage of the value chain: Where do our raw materials come from, how are they transported, how are our own production processes designed, how do our yarns reach our customers?
The analysis counts
How do we calculate the carbon footprint?
The CO2e footprint of each yarn comprises several components. The raw materials used play a central role. Even natural raw materials can cause relatively high emissions at the start of the chain, but are biodegradable at the end - and this is before any additional CO2e emissions have been considered.
Activities for reducing greenhouse gases
Emissions are generated at all stages of the value chain, from the raw materials to the finished textile. We are already taking steps at our production facilities to reduce the CO2e output of our production processes.
Sustainable products from ZKS
Everything we do revolves around responsibility for people, animals and the environment. Based on this ideal, we choose our suppliers and raw materials and build carefully selected partnerships.
