a further step to reduce the impacts of today and tomorrow
We obtained quantification of the Carbon Footprint (CFP) of products at the end of 2022. The analysis enabled us to identify opportunities to improve environmental performance at each stage of the life cycle, providing us with sustainability criteria to ensure more responsible purchasing and production choices so that we could draw a roadmap to achieve our ambitious goal.
*this data was third-party certified in accordance with ISO 14067: 2018 (Greenhouse gases Carbon footprint of products Requirements and guidelines for quantification), verification certificate CFP51/22.
WHY WE CHOOSE LOW-IMPACT PRODUCTS COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL ONES
THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF OUR HATS AND CAPS
HOW IS THE IMPACT DISTRIBUTED?
A closer look at our products
But how are carbon dioxide emissions distributed across all the phases analyzed?
The stages of the product life cycle analyzed below are: Upstream (procurement and processing of raw materials), Core (assembly), Downstream (arrival of goods to Atlantis warehouse).
*Calculation is an average of the CO2e emissions results between HIT and RECY FEEL caps for visors, WIND and RIO for beanies, and refers to Master Italia’s Carbon Footprint report considering the stages of the product life cycle from raw material production to product delivery to Atlantis warehouse.
From the study, it is clear that the Upstream phase of raw material sourcing and processing, appears to be the most impactful on the total lifecycle of our products. When we talk about raw material for Atlantis products, we mean all the textile and non-textile components that are then used in the making of a cap, excluding packaging. While some products are less articulated, baseball caps are among the most complex.
Starting from this data, we delved into the incidence of each component on the total emissions of raw material production, to identify those on which to intervene as a priority. The result was that yarn and fabric have the highest incidence, followed by the visor, also complicit in the latter’s weight in the hat’s total.
It was thus possible to identify the priority elements on which to intervene to reduce the impact of the products, especially in the more complex ones such as baseball caps.
