A better world is a
more conscious world

At Karsten, all solid waste generated is environmentally friendly, meeting legal requirements. We have a well-defined and implemented solid waste management system based on the latest management systems.

In June is celebrated the World Environment Day! We always take part the Environment Week, which aims to make employees aware of the importance of preserving the environment.

We are all aware that the textile production process uses a large amount of water. Therefore, we have our own Water Treatment Plant (WTP) to treat the water captured in Ribeirão do Testo river, which is later used in the production process. Since 2016 we have been granting the use of this captured water, thus meeting an important legal requirement. The water used at the end of the production process ends up being transformed into effluent. To carry out the treatment, we have a partner company to manage 100% of the effluent generated at Karsten.

In addition, we maintain in our plant an area of ​​preserved vegetation, offering welfare for the fauna and flora to settle even being an industrial area.
