As we are aware of the importance of environmental concerns at both legislative and social level, the Gallus Group has invested substantially to combine respect for the environment with profit, which is crucial to long-term sustainability.

Today, the Group is an integrated, environmentally-aware business operating with three main levers:
- Complete certification and traceability of goods from greige, production process and finished fabric, printed or plain through certifications like OEKOTEX, GOTS, GRS, Ecovero and BCI
- We have reduced our consumption of electricity from fossil fuels for production by over 80% and cut water consumption by 30% compared to average consumption in the 1990s: we have a powerful gas-based cogeneration plant to ensure our own online production of electricity and hot water.
- With installed solar power capacity of nearly 1.5 MWp, Gallus generates over 70% of its annual energy requirements and contributes a significant amount of green energy to the network, helping reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 1,000 tonnes per year.
