We have chosen as our partner for wool and cachemire waste material Fratelli Piacenza Spa.
As our partner, it supplies us all the waste materials of their production, specifically the so-called "handkerchiefs" wool and cashmere patches used to identify the exact spot in the piece with the design that the customer wants.
The company has always been very active and open about innovation in the environmental field.
In order to continue this tradition of interest and environmental protection it has decided to act following the principles of minor impact on the environment, ascertaining the effects of the activities carried out by the company on the environment, and guaranteeing a more responsible use of water.
The Lanificio, driven also by the increasing awareness of the impact of the fashion industry on the external environment, is implementing a Chemical Management System in production according to the requirements of the 4Sustainability Protocol (www.4sustainability.it) for which there are mainly two targets:
-Reduce the introduction of pollutants into the surrounding environment;
-Ensure limits on the presence of chemicals, dangerous for humans and others
the environment, more and more restrictive on the finished product delivered to customers.
To pursue these objectives, the main instrument is the MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List) ZDHC (inventory-maptozero.com), through the implementation of a structured project for the creation of a system for the management of chemical substances, aimed at continuously improving performance in this area.
