As a family business, Aquanova feels responsible for its future generations. That’s why we are working on an ambitious project that focuses on sustainability throughout our entire supply chain.
A big step is to say goodbye to conventional cotton and to develop new textiles in GOTS certified cotton. Oslo towel range and Per bath mat series carry the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) label. This means that the textile fibres originate from organic agriculture. No harmful or carcinogenic substances may be used in the production process either. A sustainability plan is drawn up with attention to waste management, water and energy consumption.
From a social point of view, this label keeps an eye on the working conditions in textile processing as well. Amongst other things, the social criteria for textile processing include a ban on child labour, safe and hygienic working conditions, physical abuse or other forms of intimidation.
