Road to Zero: Our responsibility for people and the environment

Acting in an economical and sustainable way are two sides of the same coin for us. That’s why we place the highest demands on the
ecological profile of our manufacturing and always optimise our production processes in line with the latest findings.
That applies to all our locations around the world: As a responsible global player, we guarantee the same high environmental
standards worldwide to ensure fair, sustainable and safe production at all times.

Always a step ahead in environmental protection

AMANN participates in “Detox Our Future”, an international campaign run by the environmental organisation Greenpeace. An extended list of criteria (see Annex 6) was developed in this regard for the certification STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, which is fulfilled by all our products. Compared to the currently used test catalogue (see Annex 4), the limit values have been tightened, particularly for the so-called “detox substance groups”. Certification in accordance with Article 6 is not yet mandatory – AMANN is the first sewing and embroidery thread manufacturer in the world to accept the detox obligation of Greenpeace and (re-)certifies all relevant products accordingly. 

Our promise

Together with our suppliers, we take responsibility for sustainable action and promise to be extremely careful, so that all necessary safety measures are put in place and no harmful chemicals are used. All AMANN threads including the finish are made entirely from non-hazardous substances – so that they can be used safely with no risk to people or the environment.

Minimal use of materials, the return of leftover materials to existing material cycles, reducing energy consumption to a minimum – at AMANN, we know that investments in resource efficiency and environmental compatibility are investments in the future. We work continuously to become even better in these aspects. We also keep an eye on the entire value-added chain, from selecting the raw material to recycling. We practise environmental protection and impose strict criteria; for proof of this, see our numerous environmental and energy management certifications. In addition, we fulfil the European chemical regulation REACh for the protection of human health and the environment.
