Everything we do testifies to our environmental concern. In our production processes, sustainability starts when selecting the raw materials. Every Suitenings mattress contains a (large) proportion of natural latex. The juice of the tropical rubber tree (Hevea Brasiliensis), natural latex is an inexhaustible, natural raw material. All rubber trees worldwide neutralize over 90 million tons of CO2 per year.
Over the past eight years, latexco has reduced energy consumption by almost 50%, by investing in new technology and by sustaining our efforts to rationalize energy use. In addition, latexco has made large investments in the installation of solar panels. The remaining electricity that’s not generated internally is 100% certified green energy.
Latexco also invested heavily in wastewater recycling technology. Through the innovative technique the wastewater is purified intensively, so that it can be reused. It is working with a closed loop water circuit.
In 1998, latexco established Latexco Solutions. This subsidiary converts latex waste into new, useful products. In this way, 4,000 tons of waste is reused per year.
