Cradle to Cradle by CHT


Sustainability is not just a trend but one of the crucial values that underpins CHT’s innovative power. It determines our daily work and our company strategy. As an innovative and sustainable partner of the textile industry we are always working on tomorrow’s ideas and solutions.

Circular economy takes over a decisive role: We are convinced that recyclable textile products are the right way to protect resources and reduce the environmental impact. For this reason, all employees work closely together with our customers and brands to achieve common goals; avoiding waste and harmful substances used or produced in the textile production process and developing materials with an ecological benefit.

The principle of Cradle to Cradle® is a pioneering step in the textile world that fits perfectly to CHT’s sustainable strategy: Right from inception products should be created which are suitable for the biological cycle. This implies the development of auxiliaries and dyes which can be decomposed and easily returned to the natural cycle.

CHT offers a vast, permanently growing, degradable or compostable product range for textile finishing that meet the strict toxicological guidelines and in turn helps in achieving the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ platin product standard for the finished textiles. Our selection of process and finishing chemicals (auxiliaries, dyes and pigments) keep textile products recyclable and promote a positive ecological footprint.

Do not hesitate to participate in the circular economy. CHT will assist you in making your contribution to sustainable and ecological textiles. In all processes along the textile value chain, we have gained excellent experience and know-how over many years, which we apply every day throughout the world.
