Headwearevolution: our promise for products and materials

We believe sustainability starts with a mindset. A natural evolution that goes beyond the product and encompasses everything we do. With the slogan Headwearevolution, we wanted to make ourselves the bearers of this promise, and in 2018 we made our first hats with low environmental impact materials. From that moment on, we decided to develop a strategy that would revolutionize all our products, without exception, transforming them into models made with organic and recycled materials (so-called preferred), while remaining faithful to the design and quality.

Our framework as a compass

We have an ambitious goal: to produce 100 percent of Atlantis products with reduced environmental impact characteristics by 2025. To achieve this goal, we have developed the Product Sustainability Framework, a guiding document that outlines four sustainability principles that should guide our sourcing and manufacturing decisions to reduce our environmental impact.

Framework
Preferred Materials

Preferred materials for fabrics and components:

Collection after collection, we go beyond the selection of eco-friendly fabrics and extend the choice of preferred materials to other elements of our hats.

The goal is to convert more and more components into recycled alternatives. With the ’24 collection, for example, our new visors are in line with this: thanks to our collaboration with Retraze®, we recover plastic bottles and fishing nets to obtain new materials for our creations.

Labelling & Packaging

Each component contributes to limiting our environmental impact

Packaging and accessories such as labels and stickers are beautiful and necessary, it’s true. We have decided to make useful changes to reduce any excess, to achieve an essential and ecological impact.

From 1 January 2023, all packaging placed on the Italian market must be appropriately labeled to facilitate collection, reuse, recovery and recycling, and to provide clear information on its final destination.

It was an opportunity to optimize our packaging and develop new stickers and tags, which are now reduced in size and made entirely of recycled paper.

Our search for alternatives and low environmental impact solutions has just begun.

Labeling and Packaging

LCA & Carbon Footprint

Using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology, we measured the carbon footprint of the most representative Atlantis branded products and identified targets for improvement.

A calculation tool specifically for our headwear

We have developed a carbon footprint calculation tool sewn onto our headwear: the “Carbon Footprint Systematic Approach ISO 14067” allows us to assess the impact of each Atlantis cap.

From measurement to carbon footprint reduction

Analyzing the impact of production choices with increasingly precise tools will help us implement the necessary actions to reduce the CO2 emissions of our hats.

Supporting environmental protection projects to offset residual emissions

For a selection of products that are already subject to impact reduction measures, we will purchase certified carbon credits to offset the remaining emissions. Once we have made our selection, we will report on the environmental projects we have funded.
