Responsibility at Tekla
Tekla recognises its responsibility as a brand to mitigate its impact. We design for longevity and produce responsibly, aspiring to move beyond just compliance with social and environmental requirements.
We are in a climate crisis, the effects of which we are already seeing globally. Time is running out to prevent further irreversible damage and, as a part of the textile industry, we know we have a key role in this. This mindset is something we embody throughout our entire business: we design for longevity, produce responsibly and strive for more than the bare minimum in ethical and environmental requirements, for ourselves and our industry.
We’re committed to the action we must take now to safeguard the future, not just because we need to, but because we believe in using business to drive positive change for everyone.
Our approach to sustainability
We don’t call ourselves a sustainable brand – bringing new products into the world is fundamentally at odds with the definition of sustainability, so it would be irresponsible to do so.
But we do strive to be more responsible. We measure our impact so we can better understand how to mitigate it, we act with care both in how and what we produce, and we do all of this with transparency because it’s the only way to make crucial changes to our industry.
