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 exclusively made in Germany with 100% clean energy, thus ensuring product safety and performance.

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

Producing with 100% green electricity
In our view, resource conservation in production means dispensing with the use of conventional electrical power provided by fossil fuels such as gas, oil and coal, or nuclear energy. Therefore, we use only green electricity in our production processes.

“ZERO’’ production waste

No production waste ends up in landfill.

Certified suppliers
We emphasise the importance of ensuring that our raw materials come from ethically, socially acceptable and responsible sources. Our suppliers are thoroughly audited before we agree to work with them. Our evaluations are based on strict compliance with social standards, effective environmental compatibility tests and environmental risk assessments.

An environmentally sound quality assurance process
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. These include challenges such as reducing material consumption, optimising energy use, waste management and reducing toxic emissions in transport and logistics. Another important focus of activity is the energy management system, which offers new opportunities for energy savings, such as the use and continual upgrading of energy-efficient engines and conversion to LED lighting.

Our employees: the beating heart and driving force of Moltex
Moltex employees are naturally the beating heart and driving force of our company. We rely on a systematic, practice-oriented approach to staff development, as well as encouraging and supporting ongoing training and further education. We emphasise the importance of promoting progressive improvements in work-life balance through effective measures. It is also important for us to heighten awareness of sustainable values among our entire workforce, and we strive to set a good example. This is a process that can only be carried out together and by taking small steps.

Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX®

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s best-known labels for products tested for harmful substances.

During the tests numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health, are taken into consideration. In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 exceed national and international requirements.

Babies require special protection. Accordingly, in OEKO-TEX® ‘Product class I’, baby care items are held to the strictest criteria, in line with sensitive baby skin.
