Tintex Textiles is taking shared responsibility to achieve a better world. The Portugal headquartered company is proud to announce its acceptance as a participant of the United Nations Global Compact initiative - a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices – a real demonstration of the Naturally Advanced ongoing commitment to responsible business action. Expertly controlled processing, and advanced dyeing and finishing solutions drive material innovation to create responsible supply chains to transform fashion systems.

“Being part of the Un Global Compact means to publicly commit with all the principles that are the basis of our business,” says Ana Silva Tavares Head of Sustainability. “Tintex’ Department of Sustainability optimizes fashion solutions that not only provide high performance nature-based textiles, but enable Tintex to arise as global leaders striving toward superior responsible fashion systems that are transparent and fully

traceable throughout the supply chain. We strongly believe that transparency and traceability are paramount in today’s business landscape, indeed, we have established a framework for the entire complex supply chain, products, processes and suppliers.”

“By sharing common conviction with thousands of likeminded companies Tintex – as a business reality constantly striving for a responsible change in the textile industry – is concretely contributing to a more stable and inclusive global market. To achieve qualitatively better and less impactful results is crucial to implement a structured strategical plan that foresees innovative approach, smart sourcing and ongoing research and development continuous experimentation, shared and interconnected internal actions and the ability to move and to react faster to the market needs.”

“Working and challenging ourselves every day we get to know that a real change can only start from a mindset change – which is clearly the most difficult thing to do for a company but definitely the most important for a long-term success,” continues Ms. Silva Tavares.
