SUSTAINABLE IN EVERY PRODUCTION PHASE
At Lanificio dell’Olivo, our entire internal production process is focused on Sustainability. Our efforts and results prove our constant commitment to respecting the environment, health of workers and consumers and the ethical treatment of animals through quality products and processes.
Our vision translates into focus on to long-term investments and the use of green energies, to respond to expectations for the future of the planet and all living in it.
CONCRETE ACTIONS FOR A SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
The care we put into creating our products is the same that guides us in carrying out actions to protect the environment and people. For this reason, years ago and among the first in the yarns industry, we developed the program GOING GREEN for Sustainable Fashion.
Going Green covers all the key areas of sustainability: Social Responsibility, Chemical Risk Management, Traceability, Environmental Sustainability and is based on concrete actions, such as the commitment to reduce the presence of harmful chemicals in fabrics and garments.
We are part of the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) of 4sustainability® and our management actions are based on ethical, social and environmental assessments.
For this reason, we have an Ethical Code, and every year, we draw up our Sustainability Report and fill in the HIGG INDEX, the tool that evaluates the sustainable practices conducted by the company in the social and environmental field developed by the SAC (Sustainable Apparel Coalition).
Corporate wellbeing and people-centric policies are our prerogative. With the PEOPLE 4sustainability® Protocol, we have defined a roadmap to continuous improvement of performance and the wellbeing of our staff.
CHEMICAL RISK MANAGEMENT
Lanificio dell’Olivo applies the 4sustainability® Chemical Management Protocol for the elimination of toxic and harmful substances from the production processes through the MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substance List) of ZDHC, for which we have reached the Progressive level in the Supplier To Zero Program.
The raw materials and our supply and production chains are controlled with stringent parameters from a chemical point of view. We constantly check the conformity of the products to our PRSL (Product Restricted Substance List) and we respect the requirements of fashion brands and the most demanding international regulations.
In 2016 we were among the first yarn producers to sign the DETOX agreement, a program promoted by GREENPEACE aimed at eliminating toxic and harmful substances for humans and the environment from production processes. Today we are part of CID, Consorzio Italiano Implementazione Detox.
