Kleen-Tex now holds the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Standard Certification for the production of textile / rubber-backed floor mats for industrial and individual customers.
ISO 14001:2015 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS).
The implementation of this environmental management system ensures Kleen-Tex takes its responsibility towards people and nature seriously by effectively integrating these standards as an integral part of the company's practices.
Kleen-Tex commits to operate sustainably and to use raw materials and energy with the greatest possible efficiency and without waste. The standard includes all relevant environmental issues, such as; air pollution control, water consumption, water waste, waste management, the mitigation of climate change and the efficient use of resources.
"Our efforts have paid off, and we are extremely proud to have passed this certification! For us, the well-being of our employees, customers and the environment is clearly a focus. Through this management system we can evaluate our environmental impact and develop a strategy specifically tailored to our company. In this way we are constantly reducing our negative environmental impact and thus actively contributing to the protection of our planet," says Gary Haynes, Managing Director, Kleen-Tex Europe.
In addition to the new environmental certification, Kleen-Tex will in the future, devote more attention to the development of sustainable products made from recycled or recyclable materials. Already planned in the next few months are a number of new "green" products soon to be introduced to the market. From September, for example, we will be launch Dune, a doormat whose surface consists of 50% recycled PET bottles. The back of Dune is partly made of recycled nitrile rubber. Dune is designed for outdoor use and is also suitable for indoor use, with an attractive 3D surface structure.
Production is in Europe and the resulting CO2-savings in delivery routes to the main sales markets are further essential aspects of the environmentally friendly approach that Kleen-Tex has adopted and committed to for the future.
