Sustainability

MOLTEX Pure & Nature has a long-standing heritage of offering reliable and high-performing baby care products that are safe for your baby’s skin and environmentally-friendly. Leveraging the latest available production and quality control technologies, MOLTEX Pure & Nature diapers are manufactured in Belgium and Czech Republic, using 100% green electricity. We even go a step further and compensate for the remaining emissions making these plants carbon neutral.

Both plants have an ISO14001 & 50001 certificate, proving solid environmental and energy management.

Only by doing this can we ensure the next generations – the little diaper heroes of today and tomorrow – an environmentally secure future.

“Nature is safe,so is my diaper”

CO2 Neutral Production 

With regards to climate action (SDG13), Ontex’s focus is on energy efficiency, renewable energy and supporting climate resilience so that their operations can become carbon neutral by 2030.

The two sites (Eeklo and Turnov) where Ontex produces the « Moltex » brand are already labelled CO2-neutral production plants.

Going beyond purchasing 100% green electricity, the plants compensate for their unavoidable CO2 emissions by supporting climate projects with the aim to install WIND TURBINES in India that will produce 54 000 MWh of electricity per year to supply 50 000 households with renewable electricity.

Ethical Sourcing 

We emphasise the importance of ensuring that our raw materials come from ethically, socially acceptable and responsible sources. We use risk based social audit approach to ensure social compliance in our supply chain.

How we control quality

A quality assurance process based on the principles of environmental awareness and responsibility always has the highest priority at MOLTEX. The need for continuous production and product monitoring poses a challenge in this context. This involves assessing environmental and social consequences and continuously adapting them to the most recent standards. (ISO14001 , ISO50001)

Environmental and Energy Management

Environment: reduction of material consumption and incorporation of recycled
and natural materials, diligent waste management and valorisation,
decrease and compensation of remaining CO2 production emisisons,
optimisation of transportation distances.
Energy: energy saving, invesment into more energy efficiency in production
processes, solar panels.
