This initiative is committed to sustainable cotton production, based on three key pillars; Environment, Social and Economic. BCI is obtained under controlled prices, having direct contact with the farmers by avoiding intermediaries, and by providing decent work conditions in the producing countries.TE:TEXTILE EXCHANGE:
Textile Exchange provides the knowledge and tools this industry needs to make significant improvements in three core areas: Fiber and Materials, Integrity and Standards, and Supply Chain.UNGLOBAL COMPACT:
A call to companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment an anticorruption, and take actions that advance societal goals.OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100:
The OEKO-TEX® label indicates the additional benefits of tested safety for skin-friendly clothing and other textiles to interested end users. The test label therefore provides an important decision-making tool for purchasing textiles and provides manufacturers in the textile and clothing industry with a uniform benchmark on a scientific basis for the evaluation of potentially harmful substances in textiles.OCS: ORGANIC CONTENT STANDARD:
Certificate that guarantees a minimum% of raw material based on the criteria of biological cultivation. The articles that have obtained this recognition in TEJIDOS ROYO, contain more than 50% of organic cotton in its final composition.STeP:SUSTAINABILITY TEXTILE PRODUCTION:
Permanent implementation of environmentally friendly production processes, optimum health and safety and socially acceptable working conditions. The dynamic further development of the STeP standard and the benchmarks allows certified companies to continuously improve their environmental protection achievements and their social responsibility as well as their efficiency.GRS: GLOBAL RECYCLED STANTARD:
Certification which guarantees the traceability of products containing more than 20% of recycled material in the final composition of the article.BSCI: BUSINESS SOCIAL COMPLIANCE INITIATIVE:
The Code of Conduct that contemplates the BSCI criteria, defines the values and principles for a responsible business practice in the supply chain and for TEJIDOS ROYO represents its public commitment promoting a responsible business activity.
All the plant-floor systems are designed for maximum efficiency.
Thermal consumption: % saving (2009-2016)
In the last seven years we have reduced by 25% our thermal consumption in all our processes.
In the area of finishes, the company invested in cogeneration facilities mainly aimed at primary energy saving.

Primary Energy Savings kWh / year
We have reduced primary energy in all our processes.
Electricity consumption: % saving (2009-2016) (electricity)
In the last 7 years we have reduced by 15% our electricity consumption in all our processes.
Thanks to the sustainability strategy implemented in the last seven years, TEJIDOS ROYO has achieved a remarkable reduction in CO2 emissions. An example is the use of high temperature emissions to heat water.
CO2 Emissions: % saving 2009-2016
We have reduced CO2 emissions in all our processes in the last seven years.
The installation of a modern heat and electricity generation plant guarantees future energy savings - 12,036,864 kWh - and emissions of co2 -453,000 kg -.
In addition to the above, a heat exchanger for waste gas in the dyeing process ensures a reduction of gas consumption by 15%.
In line with our corporate social responsibility, at TEJIDOS ROYO we are carrying out middle to long term investments in health and work safety areas, in addition to training and professional development.
ORGANIC COTTON currently represents 94% of the total production of our ROYO DENIM VALLEY line
All our denim products are developed through environmental friendly processes.

RECYCLED COTTON currently represents 40.6 % of the total production of our ROYO DENIM VALLEY line
Recycled cotton advantages:
Production of one ton of recycled cotton yarn compared to conventional cotton yarn presents the following advantages:
1. Saving 4,817.6 litres of water.
2. Saving 16.5 kg of chemical products.
3. 233.8 kg of co2 are no longer emitted in the atmosphere.
4. Energy saving of 512.5 kWh.
5. Savings in 1990, 1m2 of cultivated cotton area per ton of yarn that can be used for other crops.
SAMPLES PROJECT CERTIFICATION FOR TEJIDOS ROYO FISCAL YEAR 2014-2015.
TEJIDOS ROYO obtains assistance from IVACE for the certification of its R + D + I projects for the purposes of tax deduction according to art. 35 of the Law on Taxes and Corporations (Law 27/2014).

E4IN12/2016/92: Bi-Directional Remote Energy System with installation of power plants of weaving and dyeing of yarn
Project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), within the ERDF operational program of the Valencian Community 2014-2020. The installation of Bi-directional remote energy system, allows to reaction in leaks of efficiency and optimize the operation of the system with the programming of alarms, that to allow a solution in short time. After the installation of this system, we obtain an electric saving of 1% and 0,5% in termic energy.
E4IN12/2016/93: Automatic Control System of three stations of Climate in Weaving Plant
Project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), within the ERDF operational program of the Valencian Community 2014-2020. The project involves the installation of Automatic Control System of three Stations of Climate in Weaving Plant. Wehaveachieved astabilityinthehumidityandtemperaturethatimprovetheconditions oftheprocess. Reductions of 17% in electrical consumptions has been achieved after the installation of the automatic control system.
Improvement Project for the feeding of suction and ventilation systems for industrial equipment.
Project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), within the ERDF operational program of the Valencian Community 2014-2020. Ref .: E4IN12 / 2014/9. The project involves the installation of speed drives, control panels and small electrical equipment, in addition to inverter automation. Reductions of 17% in electrical consumptions has been achieved after the installation of the inverters and automatic adjustment of the suction motors. After the installation of the inverters and automatic adjustment of the suction motors.
Hi-Tech Industrial equipment renewal Project for higher Energy Efficiency.
Project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), within the ERDF operational program of the Valencian Community 2014-2020. Ref.E4IN12 / 2014/10. The project involves the dismantling of two old centrifugal compressors (400 + 230 kW), the installation of the new equipment (470 kW) and the adaptation of the air inlet and outlet systems. After the installation of the most efficient compressor, an electric saving of 20% has been observed in the compressed air room. This new compressor is better suited to the actual air demand in the plant.
Improvement project in the generation of compressed air at the Textile Finishing Plant.
Project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), within the ERDF operational program of the Valencian Community 2014-2020. Ref. E4IN12 / 2015/115. The project involves the dismantling of the old compressor (load-vacuum), the installation of the new variable speed drive compressor and the adaptation of the air inlet and outlet installation. After the replacement of two 37kW load vacuum compressors, by a variable speed compressor which better adapts to the compressed air demand, the energy consumption is proportional to the capacity required at each moment. This measure achieves an energy saving of 12% with respect to the total consumption of the compressor room, before the improvement implementation.
