Thinking about tomorrow today

For Lantal, sustainability means recognizing possible future factors today and integrating them in ongoing business activities. From an ecological, social, technical, and economical perspective.

For Lantal, sustainability is not just a trend, it is an integral part of our corporate culture. Lantal wants to be a role model as regards the sustainability of products and business practices:

We do not waste resources. We respect nature and do everything to protect the ecological integrity of our environment. The social contexts and the communities in which we work are important to us. 

We do all this for a good reason: We want to fulfill ethical benchmarks in every respect: as a manufacturer, as an employer, and as a long-term partner to our customers. 

Code of Conduct

As a globally active enterprise, Lantal is aware of its moral responsibilities toward employees, society, and the environment. Our values constitute the foundation of our actions. To underpin them, we have decided to introduce a Code of Conduct at Lantal Textiles AG as well.

The Code of Conduct defines binding minimal standards not only for responsibly interacting with business partners, suppliers, and the public but also for our conduct within the company. It sensitizes us to legal risks and thus helps prevent infringements of the law. In addition to honoring Lantal's values, we all – employees, managerial staff, and the Executive Committee – pledge to abide by the principles set forth in the Code of Conduct within the scope of our activities.


REACH has been in force since 1 June 2007. The European regulation on chemicals also has implications for Switzerland.
The EU is Switzerland’s most important trading partner. To avoid technical barriers to trade in dealings with the EU, Switzerland constantly adapts its legislation to European law. Swiss chemicals law enables necessary adjustments to be made at very short notice. This applies in particular to the prohibitions or limitations imposed in the EU on specific chemical substances and materials. In this way Switzerland can ensure that Swiss products benefit at all times from the same level of protection as is required in the REACH area. 

Our branch procures its textile chemicals (auxiliaries, dyestuffs) primarily from Switzerland or the REACH area. For technical trade reasons (over 80% of Swiss chemicals are exported to the EU and more than 60% imported from the EU to Switzerland), the manufacturers or importers of these products must arrange for their products to be registered with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki. This gives a high degree of certainty that the products used continue to be authorised in the REACH area.
Since the entry into force of REACH, questions have repeatedly been raised about the conformity of Swiss textiles with REACH. You will find the answers to those questions in the attachments.
