Our Standards

Setting The Standards

As the first company in Northern Ireland and the first textile manufacturer in the UK to be awarded the Carbon Trust Standard, we have led the industry when it comes to setting the standards.

Our accreditations include the internationally recognised environmental management and quality standards of ISO14001 and ISO9001, which we have held for over two decades, and IMO (International Maritime Organization) and Green Label Plus accreditations.

Our sustainability standards have also been independently verified. In 2022 we were awarded Gold in the Business in the Community NI Environmental Benchmarking Survey and we have also achieved Leader Status in the MindClick Sustainability Assessment Programme.
