Carbon Footprint Analysis at Tekstar

At Tekstar, we conduct comprehensive carbon footprint analyses of our customers’ collections to illustrate their environmental impact. By examining the entire lifecycle of a garment—including production, use, and end-of-life phases—we provide a thorough understanding of a product’s overall environmental footprint.

Researchs reveal that the maintenance and end-of-life phases contribute significantly more to the carbon footprint than the production phase. By refining these phases, we can significantly reduce the environmental impact. We share best practices for minimizing carbon footprints during maintenance and end-of-life phases with our customers, empowering them to communicate these strategies to their employees effectively. This collaborative approach helps foster a more sustainable future for the fashion industry.

A strong part of our sustainability approach is our perspective on gender equality. We believe that for social welfare to be achieved, women need to be more present and stronger in both professional and social spheres. Currently, 72% of our employees are women.
