Cradle to Cradle by CHT


Sustainability is not just a trend, but one of the most significant core values that goes hand in hand with the innovative strength of the CHT Group. It determines our daily work and is a central component of our coorporate strategy. As an innovative and sustainable partner to the textile industry, we are constantly working on the ideas and solutions for tomorrow.

The circular economy plays an essential role in this: we are convinced that recyclable textile products are the right way to conserve resources and reduce the environmental impact. For this reason, all employees work closely together with our customers and brands to achieve common goals; avoiding waste and harmful substances used or produced in the textile production process and developing materials with an ecological benefit.

The Cradle to Cradle Certified® Products Program is a pioneering step in the textile world that fits perfectly to CHT’s sustainable strategy: Right from inception products should be created which are suitable for the biological cycle. This implies the development of auxiliaries and dyes which can be decomposed and easily returned to the natural cycle.

CHT Group offers a wide range of textile finishing products for different sectors of the textile industry, that meets strict toxicological guidelines and is suitable for achieving the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Product Standard on finished textiles. Our range of process and finishing chemicals (dyes, auxiliaries and pigments) ensures that textile products remain recyclable and promote a positive environmental footprint. The majority of our certified products already meet the requirements of the best possible categories in terms of material health. In addition, most of our MHC are already listed under version 4.0.

Don't hesitate, become part of the Circular Economy today and help make textiles more sustainable and ecological - CHT will support you. We have many years of experience, technical know-how and excellent and sustainable ranges in all processes along the entire textile value chain.
