Sustainability

Rifer, Environment
and your Fabrics

Rifer’s management and environmental performance are a decisive factor in environmental protection.

The challenge faced by the textile industry today, regarding the implementation of good practices for monitoring, controlling and minimizing environmental impacts resulting from activities throughout the value chain, leads not only to compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, but also to greater accountability and awareness towards sustainability.

In this way, our demand for certified and sustainable products is reinforced, consolidating our commitment to environmental protection and our ties with stakeholders and society in general.

The production of energy, through photovoltaic panels that use sunlight as a resource, is a renewable and widely available raw material. The process of transformation of sunlight into energy does not generate solid waste or air, water or soil pollution and is therefore environmentally preferable to other non-renewable energy sources.
