Sustainability is one of the main pillars of Fulgar's social responsibility policy and is well expressed by the slogan “a better way to the future”. These words sum up Fulgar's keen environmental awareness and fierce determination to preserve and enhance the global ecosystem. Fulgar's environmental policy rests on three cornerstones: a low energy consumption production process, close attention to material recycling and the usage of a traceability system for the final product. All of this provides the consumer with sterling guarantees. Ever faithful to this policy, our Company has come up with a whole spread of versatile yarns with sustainable and functional fibres which suit many different purposes.
Successfully dealing with the environmental risk factor means keeping careful tabs on air and water quality throughout the production process as well as keeping production materials down to a bare minimum. An internally-designed water resource management system enables us to keep water consumption at optimum levels. Water is chiefly utilised for air and equipment cooling devices and is drawn from an internal network of water chambers which entirely covers the facility's requirements. Similarly, technologically advanced equipment combined with renewable energy usage work in unison to keep emissions into the atmosphere down to a minimum.
"Raw materials and semi-finished products undergo a variety of tests to assess quality and ensure worker safety standards. Fulgar places a strong emphasis on customer transparency and this is one of the reasons why Fulgar asks its raw material suppliers to provide a Reach Declaration which contains information on substances delivered, with an explanation of the intended usage of these substances.
With consumer welfare in mind, Fulgar has also voluntarily adhered to the Italian TF traceability system: this serves as a genuine product ""passport"" as it contains basic and key information, such as the exact whereabouts of the main manufacturing stages of the garment on sale. All the data is summarised on a special label bearing an alphanumerical code which stores the product's entire life cycle. Clearly, this label indicates whether the product has a clean bill of health and ethically sound origins."
