Committed to sustainability

Nels Work Safety's goal is to actively contribute to the promotion of a safer and more sustainable world through the development of protective clothing that is integrated into the circular economy, without renouncing the company's three pillars: knowledge, flexibility and profitability.
We have the firm commitment, obligation and duty to contribute voluntarily to form a fairer society, protecting the environment and social aspects. We provide our customers with quality service, offering transparency, honesty and trust throughout our production process.

Circular economy

The circular economy is a production and consumption model whose design makes it sustainable over time. This is thanks to its 3 basic principles: the optimization of resources, the reduction in the consumption of raw materials and the use of waste.
Nels' objective is to make the best use of available material resources to extend the life cycle of manufactured products.
The essential guidelines we apply for sustainable development are: redesign, reduce, reuse and recycle.
01 Redesign
We redesigned the entire production process while unifying all supply management at one point. To optimize our manufacturing process, we created a technical office and a platform in North Africa, where all supplies arrive, with a significant reduction in logistics.

At the logistics level, we optimize material deliveries, according to production needs, and stocks on the platform.
02 Reduce
Our quality apparel model minimizes the impact on the environment. It is based on the manufacture of durable products that directly affects the reduction of emissions. Long-lasting workwear not only has practical and economic benefits for users, it also generates a great environmental benefit.

Our fabrics, seams and colors of our workwear last longer, users do not have to buy new workwear as often, thus reducing unnecessary consumption of resources. Thus, our production processes, developed within the European framework, contribute to better sustainability.

Our suppliers (3M, YKK, PRYMCORDURA, IBQ, KLOPMAM, TECHS... ) have high quality controls. These controls have an impact on the entire manufacturing chain and improve the efficiency of the products.

In addition, we have the Oeko-Tex® label, which guarantees that our products do not contain chemicals or dyes that are harmful or suspected of being harmful to health. Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 is an internationally recognized certification and is also the leading health label for textile products.

Our main objective is to improve safety, ergonomics and health, therefore, we work with quality products that provide us with a longer useful life of the garment, reducing the ecological footprint. The products we manufacture are certified by AITEX technical laboratories.

Another important pillar for us is RENTING. The rental and maintenance of our protective clothing extends the durability of the garments, and generates less waste and residues, with a lower consumption of water and chemicals.
03 Repair
Before replacing a product with a new one, at Nels we promote the repair of certain garments that reduce unnecessary energy and raw material costs and extend the useful life of the product.
04 Recycle
We promote best practices in waste management and the use of reusable materials, such as some raw materials, for the manufacture of new products.

In the manufacturing processes, excess materials are sorted and reused. Scraps are disposed of in a sustainable manner in Nels containers.

At the logistics level, we optimize material deliveries, according to production needs, and stocks on the platform.
