The Gold Standard for Sustainability Explained

The pursuit of sustainability has become a hallmark of responsible business practices. However, amidst the myriad of green initiatives and eco-friendly claims, distinguishing genuine sustainability from superficial gestures can be challenging.

At Kingly, we are setting the Gold Standard for Sustainability in textile manufacturing. With unwavering dedication to positive environmental impact, social responsibility, and uncompromising quality, Kingly stands as a paragon of eco-conscious innovation.

Central to Kingly‘s ethos are these six pillars — Planet, People, Marketplace, Community, Transparency, and Traceability. They form the foundation of our holistic approach to sustainability. From crafting eco-friendly promotional products to fostering inclusivity and welfare to supporting societal well-being, Kingly’s commitment embodies a profound responsibility towards humanity and the planet.

Positioned as one of Europe’s leading producers of sustainable textiles, at Kingly we empower clients to enhance their brand visibility with earth-friendly corporate gifts. Our groundbreaking Anti-Greenwashing Validation System stands as a beacon of integrity in an era plagued by greenwashing — the deceptive practice of overstating environmental credentials. Through rigorous accreditations and audits, including SMETA Pillar 4, ISO certifications, and OEKO-TEX standards, Kingly ensures that every aspect of its production process adheres to the highest ethical and environmental standards.

Every product under the Gold Standard for Sustainability umbrella has its sustainability report crafted by BCome – a third-party organization ensuring responsible supply chains and full transparency. Here are just a few examples of the benefits of the green products that Kingly creates for the promotional merchandise industry:
