Inspired by and aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the UN in the 2030 Agenda, we are committed to contributing towards the generation of global positive change, by taking clear environmental and social responsibility.

We do that by joining the 4sustainability® roadmap, by making the values and action programs it embodies our own, and by orienting our business model to a virtuous path of change.

Politics and goals

Feel the Yarn firmly believes in people and in the key role they play in the path of sustainability. For this reason, our companies are committed to increase workers’ skills, to pursue the values of equality and equal opportunities. They are also committed to promoting corporate welfare initiatives aimed at workers’ well-being, in order to intercept emerging needs and enhance personal satisfaction and aspirations of each individual.

The safety and salubrity of workplaces and people health along the production cycles are key factors in each sustainability strategy, to be carried on by increasing awareness of the risks associated with processes and promoting safety as a value in itself.

We are committed to reducing the environmental impact

For the fashion industry, the fight against climate change to prevent and mitigate its impacts is a crucial challenge. Based on this awareness, Feel the Yarn companies strive to guarantee their effective contribution by implementing a strategy aimed at mapping and reducing the environmental impact from production activities, with reference to key variables such as emissions in the atmosphere, water and energy consumption, contamination of wastewater.

The first step towards a concrete contribution to the fight against climate change consists in the monitoring and control of GHG emissions in the whole supply chain, to identify and implement reduction and compensation solutions, privileging reforestation projects at local level.

We work together for traceability and transparency in the supply chain

Feel the Yarn is convinced that traceability is the priority tool to collect the information necessary to transparently report the achievement level of its sustainability goals.

In this sense, the development of an advanced IT traceability system represents an essential opportunity to know, at every stage of the process, the origin of the raw materials and transformation products employed for making their articles, the partners who have been involved and the materials they have used.

We include sustainable raw materials in our purchasing policies

Feel the Yarn thinks it is essential to evaluate and take into consideration, in the design and purchase choices of raw materials of its companies, alternatives with a lower environmental and social impact, according to standards and initiatives which are structured and recognized by the market.

In particular, we preferably choose certified raw materials, thus having a lower social and environmental impact, made according to criteria of environmental protection, biodiversity and respect for the dignity of farm animals.

We invest in recovery, recycling and sustainable design practices

Feel the Yarn considers the transition to a circular economy model as a necessary step to ensure constant and sustainable growth of its companies. For this reason, we encourage the implementation of projects aimed at minimizing waste through recovery, reuse and/or recycling practices and the continuous application of sustainable design initiatives in product development.

We work for chemical risk reduction and monitoring

At Feel the Yarn we are aknwologed that one of the most significant impacts of the fashion world and, in particular, of the production activity of our companies is linked to the use of chemical products in the different processing cycles.

Consequently, the Consortium companies undertake to seek the best solutions to gradually eliminate the toxic and harmful chemicals to human health and the environment from their production cycles, including the adoption of an assessment and management system of the associated risks in line with the ZDHC – Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals methodology.
