Elements of sustainability: policies and goals
Feel the Yarn firmly believes in people and in the key role they play in the path of obtaining sustainability certifications. For this reason, the Italian yarn manufacturers involved in the project are committed to increasing workers’ skills and pursue the values of equality and equal opportunities. That’s the basis of each sustainable fashion mind map. Yarnspinners also promote corporate welfare initiatives aimed at workers’ well-being, to intercept emerging needs and enhance the personal satisfaction and aspirations of each individual.

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