Every year, WED reminds us of the importance of committing ourselves to protecting the planet. This year, in particular, it emphasizes that planet Earth remains the only habitable planet we have and wants to encourage initiatives that help achieve a balance between people and the natural world in order to create a better future for all.
At Edmmond Studios, we save World Environment Day to analyze the goals we have reached in the last year, and to look forward to the coming year with new purposes and steps to follow.
REDUCE CARBON EMISSIONS
One of our main objectives was to reduce carbon emissions, and to achieve this, among other improvements, we have started to ship our products by sea instead of by air. In this way, we have managed to achieve a 30% saving in carbon emissions.
INTRODUCE ECO-EFFICIENT MATERIALS IN OUR PACKAGINGS
The packaging of our products has also been changed, we have introduced paper materials made from renewable resources to ensure a sustainable supply.
GOOD WORKING CONDITIONS FOR AGRICULTURAL WORKERS
Taking care of employees and the working environment is one of our priorities. We want to ensure that all employees who are part of Edmmond's value chain have good working conditions. This year, we have achieved social responsibility standards for all our traced manufacturing suppliers to ensure the safety and well-being of their employees (SA8000, ISO 45001, BSCI).
We try to implement improvements to be more and more sustainable, as for our latest collection we have achieved that 92% of the cotton used in the collection is certified organic cotton, which are organic textiles free of chemical products.
Edmmond as a brand is aware that there are always improvements to be made, we are clear that we want to be as transparent, consistent and sustainable as possible.
Focusing on the next steps that Edmmond as a brand should take, we want to continue to ensure good working conditions and a pleasant working environment for all employees who are part of Edmmond. In addition, we also want to continue with our circular design concept, producing timeless garments with the best sustainable raw materials.
In terms of carbon emissions, we know that there is still a lot of work to be done, so we are aiming to start using renewable energy in our stores, in our office and in our manufacturing processes, thus reducing our carbon footprint more and more.
