ECOTOOL – the right tool for the most sustainable companies

ECOTOOL is a new tool available for Professional Textile Care companies  for measuring the sustainability according to international best practices. Using ECOTOOL, you will know exactly what your company’s eco-footprint is through the complete supply chain based on: CO2 emission, primary energy content of a product, water consumption, consumption of chemicals, land use and mass balance.

With ECOTOOL, the laundry managers will have a complete life cycle analysis (LCA) tool of textile products and you will be able to quantify the sustainability of the textile for its entire lifetime. This way, you will be able to benchmark your current operation with other type of textiles or machinery and with OPL / domestic laundry setups

The sustainability process

Among the benefits provided by ECOTOOL is benchmark your operation with a number of processes (e.g. differences between laundry machinery) and a number of standard products like:

  • Workwear industry, general
