PRODUCTION - Responsible production: our top priority
We use a full panoply of measures to reduce our environmental impact, from cutting our electricity and gas consumption to water and waste management.
Our plants are constantly strive to reduce the energy and resources we use. We have also fitted more responsible heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems and equipped our sites with new ultramodern looms.
100% OF OUR ACRYLIC WASTE RECYCLED AND REUSED
With our local partners, we invest heavily in developing complex processes to recover all acrylic waste for use as recycled yarns or for other applications. This new strategy is designed to help us achieve sustainable growth.
FROM YARN BOBBIN ENDS OVER 50 GRAMMES
50 TONNES A YEAR
We use this waste to produce new yarn bobbins and put them directly into production.
BOBBIN ENDS UNDER 50 GRAMMES
50 TONNES A YEAR
This waste is transformed into recycled fibres for recycled yarn.
180 TONNES A YEAR
This waste is sorted by colour and transformed into recycled fibres.
280 TONNES OF RECYCLED TEXTILE WASTE EVERY YEAR
MORE RESPONSIBLE AND LESS ENERGY-INTENSIVE PRACTICES
At our production sites in Hordain (59) and Wasquehal (59)
We use Machine Learning (data-based statistical learning) to adapt our production to a variety of conditions while improving quality and reducing the use of compressed air and electricity.
SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN GAS CONSUMPTION
The installation of next-generation furnaces has saved 37,000 MWh at our 2 sites. The Hordain site recovers calories from its air compressors for heating the premises.
We also recover wastewater calories on our fabric wash lines using heat exchangers to heat wash baths.
BY 2030 (SCOPE 1 AND 2*)
*Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions associated with the combustion of fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal. Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions associated with the consumption of electricity and urban heating/cooling
