GHEZZI SPA has for a long time implemented a policy of improving its quality standards, environmental protection and reducing environmental impacts, obtaining, among other things, Oekotex® Standard 100 certification on most of the products. That is why we have decided to provide a wide range of articles, developed from recycled raw materials, low environmental impact, or from forests managed according to the sustainability principles set by the Forest Stewardship Council® regulations..
FSC® is a certification system that allows the final consumer to recognize products made from raw materials that are supplied from forests managed in an environmentally and socially correct way.
In a FSC® certified forest the cut is controlled and does not affect the overall health of the forest itself.
FSC® was founded by a group of environmentalists including Greenpeace, indigenous peoples, development cooperation organizations, forestry producers, workers, wood industry, scientists and forest technicians to create an alternative to forestry destruction.
Buying from an FSC® certified company means buying a cellulose product (and therefore Viscose) that does not contribute to the destruction of forests.
This means that purchasing an FSC® product rewards a company that uses a nature product for its business, but respects it and seeks to protect it.
A wide range of forests around the world is FSC® certified: Scandinavian pine plantations, Alpine pine forests and alpine larches in Italy, Oak and beech forests in Eastern Europe, tropical forests in Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, etc.
There are thousands of FSC® branded brands on the market, including furniture and interior and exterior furniture, kitchen utensils, kitchen and printing paper, paper handkerchiefs, coverings and floorings, frames and many more.

Ghezzi Spa proposes yarns made from cellulose fibers Eco-friendly from cotton linters, which are the short fibers that cover the cotton seeds.
The cotton linter is a waste of cotton processing that is collected after the separation between the cotton bud (which will be used for cotton yarns) and the seeds. The cotton linter is then worked (just like the wood pulp) to get the pulp of cellulose with which artificial fibers of Viscose will be produced. Ghezzi Spa offers RCS (Recycled Claim Standard) continuous filament Viscose yarns with twisting, combining and covering systems.
