Schoeller Textil AG
As a Swiss textile producer, we are aware of our responsibility to humans and the environment and to the legacy we are leaving for future generations. The issue of ecological compatibility is an integral element in each development of our wide-ranging product portfolio. Innovation in product design and innovation in sustainability – these two aspects go hand in hand, and we live them every day, as we have done for many years. Among current examples is ecorepel®, the bluesign® certified, fluorocarbon-free, water-repelling technology.
Schoeller was one of the key players in the establishment of bluesign® in the 90s and was the first company to apply these sustainability-based principles across its entire textile-production chain. Numerous environment-relevant investments were made for the screening, which contributed to the modernisation of the company and are still preserving valuable resources on a day-to-day basis today.
