Sustainability Framework

Product Sustainability Framework

Global warming is one of the most profound issues facing our planet. The Paris Agreement states that to avoid the dangerous effects of climate change, warming should be limited to below 1.5°C. The fashion industry, of which we are a part, is in fact the third largest manufacturing sector in the world and is characterized by a high greenhouse gas intensity, with estimated emissions ranging from 2 to 8% of the global total.

How can we, as hat specialists, become more sustainable?

From this question arises the need to understand and intensify our actions.

For an increasingly responsible production that respects the environment and people, we have set ourselves the ambitious goal of producing 100% of Atlantis items with reduced environmental impact by 2025.

The Product Sustainability Framework is the tool that will help us achieve our goal. It contains sustainability guidelines and criteria to ensure more responsible sourcing and manufacturing choices, which will be updated as we gain knowledge and awareness of the best options available in the marketplace. We have also identified 4 sustainability principles that we must meet and “compass” criteria to guide us along the best path.

The Framework is the result of a long process of self-analysis and a desire to improve and evolve. We believe it’s the starting point of a long journey that we must not take alone, but together with all our stakeholders.
