Environmental protection

SCANDYE is working accordingly ISO 14001:2015 (ISO 14001 certificate) Environmental management system standard. Company strategy is to produce high quality products, cherishing our environment and responsibly using natural recourses and energy.
The company is renewed with new - age economic dyeing equipment; the process uses chemical materials and dyes that adhere to the requirements of REACH program.
Company supplies the services of dyeing and final finishing, most of its products have „Oeko-tex“ and „ Ecolabel “ (“The Flower”), “Cradle to Cradle”(C2C), „The Nordic swan“ brands. Products marked with these brands correspond to very strict environmental protection requirements – granting of the brand shows that no harmful materials to the environment or the users are used during manufacturing of the product itself or manufacturing of its resources:

Oeko-tex is a Health Label. It is the customer’s guaranty that no harmful contents will be transferred from the fabric onto the user’s skin.
The criteria focus on the contents of chemical substances - including dyes - that are released from the product during use. To obtain Oeko - tex the finished product must be tested at an Oeko - tex -  accredited lab according to the limits of Oeko - tex 100.
 

The idea of “Cradle to cradle” brand is a closed cycle – the resources are acquired from nature, they’re used, then they decompose and return to nature and so on. Used products are returned to the manufacturing process this way diminishing the use of natural resources and waste accumulation. “Cradle to cradle” products have to be decomposable and the products used during the manufacturing process have to easily decompose into initial parts and be used to manufacture other products.


The European Eco label (the Flower) is an Environmental Label.
The label is the customers guarantee that the environment has been taken into consideration during the production. The criteria’s regulate everything, right from the raw material, to use of chemicals and dyes, waste water discharges and the contents and quality of the finished product.
The most obvious advantage of the European Eco label is the fact that the production – not only the product - is environmentally friendly. No matter if the production takes place in Denmark, Lithuania, South Africa, China or anywhere else, the criteria’s must be followed, and the environment is taken into consideration.


The Swan is based on the same criteria’s as the European eco label. It is an Environmental Label which includes CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).
The label is the customers guarantee that the environment and the work environment have been taken into consideration during the production. The criteria’s regulate everything, right from the processing of the raw material, to the use of chemicals and dyes, waste water discharges and the contents and quality of the finished product.
The most obvious advantage of the Nordic Swan label is the fact that the production – not only the product - meet the criteria, no matter in which part of the world the production takes place.
