"Sustainability is becoming more and more of an obligation and commiment and we are proud to be part of the movement! Heytex has listened to the wishes of our customers and made its ecotex® product line - the PVC-free textile outdoor alternative - climate neutral.

From now on, our customers can purchase our eco-friendly products on request carbon neutral without having to worry about their carbon footprint. We are setting an example for the future and invite you to join us in making the world a little greener."
With ecotex®, Heytex has already introduced an ecologically compatible alternative to classic, printable PVC-coated materials in 2019. The textile products are PVC- and plasticizer-free, sustainable and recyclable and find applications in the outdoor sector. Particularly innovative is that two of the materials are made with knitted base fabrics from 100% recycled rPET bottles according to GRS 4.0. Thus ecotex® sets an example for sustainability and environmental protection. The product range includes a frontlit, mesh and, with decoflex-R, a decorative indoor textile.
At FESPA Munich, Heytex presents a whiteback, a new, innovative textile blockout for outdoor use.
In 2023, together with Climate Partner, we recorded the CO2 emissions of the ecotex® product range and considered the product carbon footprint (PCF) with regard to raw materials, logistics, packaging and disposal according to the usual cradle-to-gate plus end-of-life approach.
Where possible, we avoid and reduce these CO2 emissions:
Our company purchases 100% green power from renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and hydro. We made a conscious decision to purchase green power because we want to make a sustainable and ecologically responsible contribution to climate protection.
Heytex processes are subject to the requirements according to energy management ISO 50001:2018 and environmental management ISO 140001:2015.
Furthermore, with the in-house photovoltaic system installed at the main plant in Bramsche in 2021, we are already covering 7.5% of the energy demand and will further expand this in 2023.
At Heytex, we are committed to environmentally friendly and sustainable mobility. Therefore, we have opted for e-mobility and use e-company vehicles for our fleet. To ensure a smooth supply of electricity, we operate our own charging stations on our company premises.
We also offer e-bike leasing for our employees to provide an environmentally friendly alternative to cars and to promote the health of our employees.
We have set ourselves ambitious targets to reduce our emissions. Compared to 2017, we have already reduced our emissions in the energy sector by around 56% and are proud to say that we are on the right track. Our climate strategy is an important part of our corporate philosophy. Sustainability is a continuous process and so we will continue to improve and find new ways to reduce our environmental footprint.
We regularly update the PCF to keep track of the success of our measures.
We offset all remaining CO2 emissions by supporting a climate protection project. That is why our ecotex® products are climate neutral. Climate protection projects save CO2 - for example, we make a significant commitment to marine conservation.
