To meet the ever-growing demand for eco-friendly protective workwear, TenCate Protective Fabrics has developed three ground-breaking products over the past 10 years: Tecawork® Ecogreen, Tecasafe® Ecogreen, and most recently, the world’s first sustainable FR-treated fabric: Tecapro® Ecogreen.
The highest-quality, most comfortable protective workwear with the smallest environmental footprint possible — that’s the ambitious goal we’ve set for ourselves with our Ecogreen portfolio.
These products have allowed us to save many liters of water throughout the years. For example, for every meter of Tecasafe® Ecogreen XL9300 sold, we save 40.000 liters of water in the supply chain. We’ve sold over 4 million meters of this fabric to date.
Our driving purpose “Made for Life” refers to our commitment to empower end users to feel safe, comfortable and confident in what they do, not just in this moment, but far into the future. By providing end users with the most comfortable, most sustainable protective workwear possible, Ecogreen fabrics play an important role in improving their overall wellbeing — on and off the job. A healthier planet ensures a higher quality of life for all of us. That’s why we’ll never stop using our long-standing experience and expertise to propel innovation forwards, leading the way with sustainable solutions for our value chain and for the planet.
The world around us is developing at a rapid pace, and these changes have an immense impact on how we operate our business. That’s why we continuously assess external factors in the world around us – to create an ambitious, transparent and sustainable strategy that not only contributes to our own future growth, but also one in which our customers and partners are instrumental in creating better solutions.
No matter in what industry you work, we offer the sustainable fabric that suits your needs. To meet the ever-growing demand for eco-friendly protective workwear, we have developed three ground-breaking products over the past 10 years: Tecawork® Ecogreen, Tecasafe® Ecogreen, and most recently, the world’s first sustainable FR-treated fabric: Tecapro® Ecogreen.
All our sustainable fabrics come with an EPD®, an Environmental Product Declaration. An EPD® is used to capture the calculations made in the LCA. An EPD® is an objective and fact-based (international) reporting tool that provides complete and transparent LCA information to guide end users, procurement professionals and product designers in their selection process. Besides proving that we’ve truly lowered our impact and allowing us to make external claims, it also offers customers a simpler way to compare products.
