Beste goes green for the environment

“We can’t change the past, but if we change the present, we will also change the future.”

JEAN-PAUL MALFATTI

BESTE, THE FACTORY

A company who invested and still invests in technology, with a controlled and surveilled manufacturing process.
The history of each product can be clearly and easily traced, starting from raw materials.
In order to carry out this ambitious business project, Beste built its brandnew plant at Ponte di Colle, in the green area of the Val di Bisenzio, near Prato. An innovative building, whose architecture summarizes many of the company’s values: transparency, dialogue with the environment and sustainability.

FROM FABRIC TO THE FINISHED GARMENT: EVERYTHING CAN BE DONE DIRECTLY AT BESTE

A unique company, which hosts all the processing steps. We produce ideas, not only fabrics and finished garments.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is not only being sustainable but creating a sustainable business.
1 – SHORT CHAIN:we undertake relationships only with those who share our philosophy and standards.
2 – VERTICAL PRODUCTION:having control of the process means being able to ensure high quality standards,repeatability and complete traceability of the supply chain. Furthermore, holding the fabric manufacturing know-how means being able to produce it with less resources.

TRAINEES:10 - INTERNS:26

EMPLOYEES GROWTH:

Beste is always looking for new talents to be trained and to join the company. Every year our company hosts trainees and interns from different schools, offering them the possibility to make themselves known and to work in a growing environment. We mix experience and expertise and share them with the new member of the team.

CERTIFICATIONS

Beste pays particular attention to the raw materials the company utilizes: we buy them only from qualified suppliers. In fact, Beste is able to provide fabrics made with organic cotton (BCI,OCS and GOTS certifications), raw recycled materials (RCS certification) and feather (RDS certified) used for padded fabrics.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY:

WATER

Beste mill rises on the banks of Bisenzio river, historically known as the cradle of Prato textile industry. The processing waters are treated before being sent to the treatment plant, where they undergo further treatment phases which makes them re-usable.

ELECTRICITY

At Beste electricity comes from renewable sources. Partly from the photovoltaic panels installed on the roof partly from the electricity manager, which guarantees energy from 100% renewable sources. Our company also owns a co-generator, which is being replaced and will be fully operational by 2020.

 

 

CO2
Beste pays particular attention to limiting greenhouse gas emissions. That’s why the steam generators, fundamental machineries in textile production, are going to be replaced with two brand new devices that are able to increase performances and cuts CO2 emissions at the same time. Those new steam generators will provide a 5% decrease in CO2 emissions compared to current generators. We are also going to install a neutralising plant, which uses CO2 derived from methan gas combustion fumes. This can guarantee a correction of Ph coming from wastewaters that originate from some processing of our plant.

QUALITY CONTROL

At BESTE we are always looking for innovative solutions and sustainable chemical products in order to reduce the environmental impact, without ever giving up performance and quality.

ECO-DESIGN

THE NEW SUSTAINABLE FABRIC COLLECTION

Developing a product that is sustainable from its creation to its final usage, utilizing carefully selected materials: ECO-DESIGN, the new collection designed by Beste’s technical team, is born from these needs. A collection designed with the aim of minimizing the environmental impact of the entire life cycle of the product: from the production processes and materials used to the possibility of recycling the product itself. A goldmine of ideas for brands whose aim is to develop sustainable projects.

TRASPARENCY

Beste is always looking for new solutions to decrease environmental impact without giving up on technical features and performance: total transparency. Our chemical products warehouse is shared on different platforms (such as the clean chain one). Furthermore, every customer has the opportunity to real-time check the progress of their qualities, directly on our website.
