Environmental Sustainability

Corporate & Environmental Sustainability

At Baltex we take our corporate sustainability seriously. We know what we're talking about when it comes to fabric development - then the landscape changes. The process of creating fabrics that cause less environmental harm, and meet our high performance standards, is always evolving. We have a continuous process of evaluating new and emerging options to reduce the impact of our products, and our business.

Our commitment to producing the highest performance technical fabrics with the lowest environmental impact can be found in many areas of our business, for instance in design and product development we use a computer based 3D design system that allows us to visualise, modify, and simulate knitting structures before knitting. This eliminates trials and the associated raw material waste, power, and resource costs. In materials, we have developed a 3D spacer fabric using recycled polyester but retaining the performance characteristics of similar products using virgin yarn. Dyeing and finishing through our own dyehouse in Nottingham means we can control the raw materials, chemicals, and waste products from post-knitting processing. These are just 3 examples of how Baltex is committed to utilising methods like these to move us closer to our goal of manufacturing sustainable, closed loop products.

We have Oekotex 100 approval for our XD Spacer fabrics range. We have recently developed a 3D fabric made from fully recycled polyester yarns, the first of its kind in our industry.
