Candiani's close relationship with its local environment and community
makes us particularly sensitive to environmental issues.
As a market leader, we believe that we have the responsibility to demonstrate how a business can thrive respecting the environment in which it operates.
Our aim in responsible sourcing is to ensure that suppliers work according to the same principles and values that we do.
This means consumers can trust the way our materials are sourced before manufacturing begins.
About 40% of the overall cotton we process is sourced from Better Cotton Initiative.
We are a great supporter of BCI, an organization that exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, for the environment it grows in and better for the sector's future.
At Candiani we view recycling as a key part of our product lifecycle management
and are committed to the principles of Reduce, Re-use and Recycle.
We believe limiting waste as much as possible is absolutely necessary to safeguard the environment. Therefore we collect and recycle our own waste of yarns from the spinning, warping and dyeing departments.
People working at Candiani know they are part of something unique.
Our welfare oriented approach puts the health and the saftey of our people as a priority.
Workplace safety is not just a question of complying with the law - Italy
has by far some of the most protective labour laws amongst all other
countries where denim is produced - but it is a moral responsibility.
recognizes the importance of eliminating hazardous substances
from our production cycle, for this reason, in September 2018,
we signed the Detox commitment, promoted by Greenpeace, thus starting an important path for a further improvement.
We share this commitment with a group of companies that are part of the Italian Detox Implementation Consortium. This new path aims to enrich our constant commitment to respect the environment and the health of workers and consumers through quality products and processes.
Here is the complete text of the Detox commitment, here is the MRSL and the tests carried out on waste water. The data has been published on the IPE portal.
