WE ARE ESPECIALLY ATTENTIVE TO THE MALAGASY ENVIRONMENT.
Ultramaille is committed to sustainable development in respect to nature. We like to knit natural fibers. If possible, we give preference to local producers in order to avoid pollution due to transport. For the production of vapor, we utilize recyclable resources. The water taken out of the underground water source is treated and sent back clean into nature. All our waste is incinerated. We have reduced our CO2 emissions down to the strictest minimum level.
The steam required for dyeing and for ironing, is generated by burning wood waste that is recuperated from the local wood furniture industry in addition to Eucalyptus branches- a tree that grows easily and abundantly in Madagascar.
The water necessary for washing, for dyeing, and finishing, is retreated in our own purification station. Then it is recycled clean back to nature. The mud from the purification station is incinerated at a high temperature.
Based on the desire to develop local skills, Ultramaille has, since its beginnings, integrated the dimension of sustainable development and the principles of corporate social responsibility are an integral part of its economic model.
The Ultramaille company does not limit itself to offer a job more than 800 people, it participates actively the improvement of the social life of its fellow citizens.
The smaller of the seeds may contain the larger tree.
Education is the foundation of man. It is fundamental to humanity. It is a light that guides the steps of everyone in personal as well as professional savie. Education is still an ongoing challenge for Madagascar.
