Waste

Ratti is actively engaged in initiatives for the reduction of waste. Reducing consumption has an effect on the reduction of waste.

Ratti currently recycles 68% of its non-hazardous waste and 70% of its hazardous waste.

In comparison with the previous year, the number of kilograms of hazardous waste produced in 2018 per metre of fabric fell by 8.96%.

All paper packaging is FSC certified. Thanks to the use of folding and stackable plastic boxes, the total packaging for the metres of fabric produced decreased significantly.

The table below shows the consumption of packaging.
