Responsible Stock Management

Tengiva unveils a new label for textile suppliers

A simple, recognizable symbol to highlight and celebrate companies that are defying the status quo and creating a positive industry shift through better stock disposal.

Tengiva is proud to unveil the new Responsible Stock Management label it has created, in order to identify all manufacturers making important logistic and operational efforts to avoid using landfills and incineration, by selling their excess stock online, via its platform.

Overstock is a major global concern, and by helping manufacturers showcase and sell their leftovers, to buyers around the world, Tengiva hopes to improve redistribution, create new industry relations and keep manufactured materials in circulation to support circular economics.

What do we mean by Responsible Stock Management?

All manufacturers have leftovers. Some more, some less, but everyone has to deal with the reality of excess stock and we’re starting to see companies courageously stand out from the crowd with tangible strategies to repurpose overstock. We wanted to recognize this.

Responsible stock management means recognizing and tracking what you have, to consciously dispose of it in the most functional, environmentally respectful way, while also supporting the industry by helping buyers access smaller amounts.

Why a label if Tengiva already supports this with its platform?

Sure, it’s a good way for a company to look good, showcase their efforts and promote their brand. But beyond that, it’s also a way to identify, recognize and encourage businesses that are changing the way they do things, for the greater good. For large manufacturers, it’s much easier to throw out, burn or sell off to jobbers. A recognizable label helps create a sense of community and encourage others to be a part of the change. It also helps buyers choose businesses that are in line with their values.

How does a supplier get this label?

Manufacturers that choose to use the Tengiva platform are making a conscious commitment to improve. Every supplier who actively sells on our site can use the Responsible Stock Management label to communicate their pledge to potential clients, to their own teams and to a global audience that wants to know.

Be on the look-out

Suppliers that are actively using the Tengiva platform can use the Responsible Stock Management label in several different ways. Look for the label in trade show booths, on websites, brochures and much more.
