In recent years, making production more sustainable and resource-saving has become a top priority for many textile companies. With inteos, the fully integrated solution for ERP and MES in textile manufacturing from Halo, the focus is on a mindful approach to the environment. A photovoltaic system of over 1000 m² was installed on the roof of the company building in 2021, which will enable Halo electronic GmbH, Lustenau/Austria, to completely cover the energy consumption of their server farm in the future.
The topicality of the issue is currently reinforced in Germany by the Supply Chain Act that will come into force at the end of 2022. Even though it will only apply to companies with at least 3,000 employees for the time being, it will put the economic and legal aspects of greening at the center of corporate attention.
This means that supply chains have to be made completely transparent with regard to ecological and labor law requirements. Therefore, completely digitalized and integrated data collection of the production processes is necessary.
The continuous process integration in inteos not only increases transparency and traceability, but also enables more efficient handling of raw materials and energy. In this context, economic and ecological advantages go hand in hand: low costs due to resource and energy savings always also mean a reduced environmental impact and lower CO2 emissions.
