Lifecycle Impact Analysis
Consistent with our ethos of radical transparency, we engaged GreenStep, a reputable third party, to prepare an analysis of our supply chain measuring the environmental impact of our products. The results were as follows:
- Emissions: 13.71 Kilograms CO2e
- Water Used: 241.39 Liters
- Waste: 0.45 Kilograms
Tenere is diligently working on developing programs to (1) primarily reduce the emissions, water usage, and waste within its supply chain and operations and (2) secondarily offset the emissions, water usage, and waste that it cannot currently avoid.

Your Products Journey
How and from where we ethically source our raw materials.
Our trusted yarn partners take feedstock materials and follow environmentally responsible processes to spin them into finished yarns.
Yarns transported to Jin Feng / Taiwan fabric mill
Knitting & Weaving
Our knitting and weaving partners hold the highest standards and supply the finest textiles.
Dyeing & Finishing
Applying colorants and finishes is one of the most environmentally impactful processes in garment manufacturing. Our dyeing and finishing partners all have a proven track-records of responsible use & discharge of both chemicals and waste water.
The garment manufacturing process is the most labor-intensive aspect of building apparel. It’s important to ensure that no individual in the supply chain is exploited. All of our cut & sew partners pass a rigorous auditing process to ensure we, as a brand, are selecting the most responsible partners. These partners share our values such as equality, fair compensation & benefits, and a safe workplace.
Product End of Life
We are committed to investing resources in the development of completely circular garments. We are tracking to reach this goal by 2025. In the meantime, however, we’re in the process of setting up the following ‘end of life’ programs:
In an effort to extend garment useful life, items returned in fixable condition will be refurbished and either (1) resold to the public under a TeneRewear tag or (2) donated. Further, we believe economic status should not be a barrier to wearing premium products; therefore, we sell these refurbished garments to interested consumers at a material discount.
Tenere products are built to last. And, to help eliminate overconsumption, the TenereRepair program will allow consumers to send Tenere damaged or worn clothing and get them repaired for a small fee.
Based on Tenere’s commitment to reuse, TeneRecycle allows customers to return their used garments for recycling by Tenere. Because of the current yarn composition in our products, they cannot be recycled into a garment of equal or greater quality at this time. However, these items can be downcycled into something of lower quality (e.g. carpet), until our garment construction allows for recyclability.
Far from perfect. Far from finished. But one step closer.
