Rieter joins ´Blue Competence´
As a leading supplier for textile machinery and components, Rieter focuses on low energy consumption and high raw material utilisation in the development of spinning machines. Customers thus profit from sustainably-producing machines. With its sustainability solutions, the Company fulfills the criteria of the VDMA sustainability initiative ´Blue Competence´: with immediate effect, Rieter belongs to the circle of the ´Blue Competence´ partners.
Spinning machinery and components, which allow customers to produce energy-efficient, high-quality yarns, have been the focus of development at Rieter for decades. Rieter machines maximally utilise the valuable raw materials and therefore reduce raw material loss.
The efforts which Rieter has undertaken in recent years to produce sustainable spinning machinery and components are now expressed in the label of the ´Blue Competence´ initiative. With fulfillment of the requirements of the sustainability initiative, Rieter has been immediately appointed as a member of ´Blue Competence´.
Which measures Rieter has implemented to secure sustainability are to be found in the Sustainability Report. This has been published 2014 for the third time in succession.
