World leading textile manufacturer Manteco presents its sustainable path for a better future: The Manteco System. A strategy and a vision shaping the company’s sustainable imprint since 1943. The system consists in the development and engineering of a production network involving 100 partner-companies from the whole supply chain within 10 km of Manteco HQs in Prato, Italy; “We all team up responsibly to create premium collection based on transparent , traceable circular economy practices,” comments Matteo Mantellassi, co-CEO of Manteco.
Like an orchestra director, Manteco is leading the change harnessing the skills of the world’s renown textile district “to meet the demand for fair and sustainable fashion that consumers believe in, and is expected from our clients”. To achieve such goal, the company and its partners have created and accomplished to a Protocol of Sustainable Values and Commitments in line with the highest standards of the global market.
“On a hand, the protocol preserves the unique ‘genius loci’ of our territory – it respects the heritage of all our partners, from the smaller businesses to the more structured ones - on the other hand, it works like a shared compass of sustainable values, allowing the whole supply chain behind Manteco products to stand out and be competitive on the global stage” adds Mantellassi.
The protocol and its monitored and traceable system cover virtuous management of resources – e.g. Water, energy and chemical products - waste management and low production impact on the environment but also responsible standards in terms of employment, quality of the working environment, equal rights and anti-discrimination policies.
The Manteco System works like a symphony where management, measurement and controls are not there just to test the quality of each single phase of processes or products, but to make sure and offer the complete traceability of Manteco production. From raw material, to yarn, spinning, finishing, testing and final fabric.
