Environmental policy and certifications
At Asli, we focus greatly on protecting the environment and paying our contribution to a greener world. Therefore, we have taken several steps to promote sustainability in both our business and our products.
We are a member of The Business Environmental Performance Initiative (BEPI), which is a part of the organization of open and sustainable trade, Amfori. Our membership requires that we as a business commit to and implement a sustainability policy. With this policy we have implemented a number of initiatives, processes and certifications to help us protect the environment.
Asli works with one of the first CO2-neutral factories in our industry, which enables us to offer CO2-neutral products in the form of climate compensation. In addition, our certifications allow us to deliver products with the Swan Label, Oeko-tex and FSC labels.
