Sustainable growth

At Uniformidad Laboral Barberá we are focused on improving product quality and customer satisfaction is very important, which is why we have implemented a Quality Management System in accordance with the ISO 9001:2015 standard.

We have an Environmental Management System according to ISO 14001:2015, which addresses environmental aspects generated in the activities carried out and promotes environmental protection to prevent pollution.

In addition, the life cycles of products and services are taken into account to minimise the environmental impact as much as possible.

Environment

At Uniformidad Laboral Barberá we have taken another step forward in our commitment to caring for the environment and our clients’ equestrianism without losing the essence of our company: protection and comfort.

It is time to think about the environment, and in addition to having implemented a quality and environmental system (ISO 14001 and 9001) we are also studying the recycling of garments.

What is our goal?

Our aim is to extend the life cycle of products and reduce to a minimum the carbon footprint, an environmental indicator that reflects the amount of greenhouse gases that we emit both directly and indirectly. We achieve this by applying ECODESIGN, i.e. designing, incorporating environmental criteria in the production and development phase of each product, trying to reduce the environmental impact as much as possible from production to disposal. – Minimising resources by using recycled and local materials.

· Maximising the durability of products with high resistance, solidity…·

Minimising waste by introducing the term recyclable and an on-demand adjustment.

What is our textile process like?

Our aim is to recover part of the garment that has already been marketed in order to be able to reuse it, for which we carry out a scheme for the process.

7. User

We hand over the new uniform to the user, who will pick it up again at the end of its useful life to start the cycle again.

6. Confection

We make the new garments from recycled old ones.

5. Weaving, dyeing and finishing

The yarn obtained is used to weave the fabric and finished to give it the appropriate technical properties.

4. Spinning

New yarn is produced by the spinning process.

1. Collection of used clothes

To recycle them and turn them back into resources.

2. Separation of unwanted and non-recyclable parts.

Zips, buttons, labels, etc. are removed in order to be able to recycle the fabric.

3. Shredding of the fabric

The fabric is shredded to obtain recycled fibre from the garments collected.

Why do we need to change our economic model?

The textile industry is the second most polluting industry on the planet. At Uniformidad Laboral Barberá we are committed to the importance of caring for our planet.

According to data provided by the European Parliament, each European consumes an average of fourteen tons of raw materials per year and generates, each year alone, five tons of waste. In total, the EU produces more than 2.5 billion tonnes of waste per year, with the impact on the climate being one of the main factors.

The constant extraction, use and disposal of raw materials has major environmental consequences, increasing C02 emissions and energy consumption. According to scientists, at this level of activity, climate change will be irreversible by 2030.
