The Calzedonia Group is committed to reporting the environmental impacts of its business, striving to improve constantly and minimise them.

 

In the Code of Ethics, the Group has clarified how, in this context, its efforts seek to minimise the environmental impact with a series of measures implemented during all phases and the entire life cycle of its products, from design, production, distribution and retail through to end use.

In 2019, these commitments received a new boost following adhesion to the Fashion Pact, under the scope of which the Group is working to achieve shared objectives by which to halt global warming, restore biodiversity and protect the oceans.

The Calzedonia Group has decided to analyse all phases of the production chain in order to identify its critical aspects. The reporting makes it possible to understand the problems and thus define a strategy aimed at reducing the environmental impact.

Calzedonia and the WWF

In summer 2021, working in collaboration with the WWF, Calzedonia took part in an operation to clean Italian beaches, clearing up approximately 6,500,000 m2 of shores. But the efforts need to go further, solving the problem at the root, to prevent the plastic from reaching our seas.

Thus, together with the WWF and Marche Polytechnic University, we have launched a study aiming to analyse the impact of the release of microplastics in the swimwear production chain, starting with the dyeing of fabrics, followed by its use in the sea and through to washing at home.

The collaboration aims to answer various questions:

  • How many microplastics are released during the fabric dyeing phase?
  • What washing method causes the least release of microplastics?
  • How many microplastics are released when using swimwear?
  • Are there devices that can limit the release of microplastics when washing the items at home?
  • How should any microplastics collected when washing at home be best disposed of?

Once these questions have been answered, we will be able to improve our understanding of the variables that most impact the release of microplastics. Following this, action will be planned to minimise the issue and raise awareness amongst all chain players.
