70% OF THE ELECTRICITY WE USE IS PRODUCED FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES.
WE HOPE TO MAKE IT 100% OF OUR POWER DEMAND OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS BY INVESTING IN
HYDROELECTRICITY AND COGENERATION SYSTEMS.

During the past ten years, Botto Giuseppe e Figli Spa has invested considerable economic and human resources into the development environmentally sustainable projects.The company believes that efficiency, energy savings, the production of electricity from renewable sources and process optimisation have been and will be strategic themes. Production takes place in two facilities, namely in Valle Mosso in the Biella province, and in Tarcento in Friuli.

Naturalis Fibra

HYDROELECTRICITY

The facility in Tarcento, Friuli, uses hydroelectric energy produced by the dam, amounting to ca.8.000.000 KWH, thus saving 3,3376 T/YEAR of CO2. .

SOLAR ENERGY

Extensive surfaces of the facility’s roof are tiled with photovoltaic panels. Solar energy produces 1.000.000 kWh, equivalent to ca. 420 t/year of CO2. .

MULESING-FREE SHEEP

The wool comes from sheep that are not subjected to mulesing. The animals are treated with respect and bred in sustainable farms in a controlled area. This type of breeding saves 8.000.000 kWh, equivalent to ca. 3,376 t/year of CO2 saved..

DYEING

Yarn is dyed with carefully selected dyes and all the additional processes, underpinned by Eco intelligence Growth onsultations and based on the principles of Cradle to Cradle® Gold Standard certification, in the framework of the Fashion Positive Initiative.
