Sustainability and Responsibility for the Environment
Our Russell Europe brand has always been synonymous with sustainability and quality boasting GOTS certification.
We only cooperate with suppliers who also save the environment and its resources. The three buzzwords “Fairness, Loyalty and Appreciation” rank first for us. The complete Russell Collection complies with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, which guarantees that no unlawful or detrimental substances are used for producing the garments. As a member of amfori, the leading global industry association promoting open and sustainable trade, Russell complies with amfori BSCI. All production sites are certified according to the BSCI Standard in order to fulfil the relevant requirements.
Not only are the production sites certified, our textiles also comply with highest standards. GOTS, the Global Organic Textile Standard, is recognised as the leading international standard for processing textiles from organically grown natural fibres. It sets high-level environmental requirements along the complete textile value chain and calls for compliance with social criteria at the same time. Our Russell brand is GOTS-certified and meets all legal requirements.
The importance that we attach to sustainability is reflected in the brand’s products. Examples include the Bionic Softshell Jackets that are treated with a fluorine and PFC-free Bionic-Finish® Eco, achieving the water-repellent properties of the jacket in an ecological manner.
The Insulated Jackets also represent product sustainability: the Dupont™ Sorona® wadding is made of plant-based ingredients and guarantees warmth in colder conditions while its PFC-free Aquapel™ finish by Nanotex® ensures rain just rolls off.
Russell Pure Organic® is a sub brand we launched in the interest of nature – consisting of 100% combed, ring-spun organic cotton. Russell Pure Organic underlines once more that we place highest emphasis on an environmentally friendly and socially responsible production and ensure transparent labelling so that customers are fully informed about the products.
The product portfolio ranges from T-shirts and sweatshirts to polos. This collection was designed for environment-conscious companies and additionally proposes unique, sophisticated design features which add that special something to the elegant basics. The white-label design, in particular, is the best prerequisite for customisation.
The quality of Russell Europe’s entire product portfolio speaks for itself and for true sustainability in every single product. Sustainability is the path that we will also take in future – with a view to permanently improving and minimising our carbon footprint day after day.
