GAUGING AND REDUCING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL
COMMITMENT N°5 - ENVIRONMENT
CEPOVETT’s innovative approach
CEPOVETT’s innovative approach within the professional textile sector is based on a product life cycle analysis that aims to measure and reduce its environmental impacts and limit the materials used, while offering its customers environmentally responsible alternatives. This multi-criteria approach, linked to the specific social and environmental issues of its activities, generates useful information that assists our stakeholders in the decision-making process.
CEPOVETT #POSITIVEIMPACT LABEL
The #PositiveImpact commitment formalizes the sustainability and responsibility criteria for every item of clothing.
As a sign of reassurance, the hashtag endorses the CSR approach based on evidence and positive impacts related to the eco-design of products, pursuant to several criteria, in particular: using low-environmental-footprint, labelled and eco-friendly natural materials or recycled materials, saving water resources, reducing the carbon footprint throughout the value chain, as well as initiating alternative transport solutions, etc. This pledge embodies the Company's multi-annual CSR approach that focuses on the positive impact of its actions, epitomized through its products. This signature enables our customers to identify product references that meet the ethical criteria established by our brands. They are identified on the pages of our catalogues. Through the #PositiveImpact, the whole history of our products and their traceability will be narrated and made easily accessible to users, as such addressing the demand for additional information on the environmental and social criteria of our workwear.
This new eco-designed workwear and PPE collection meets cross-cutting market needs. We develop solutions tailored to your working environment, from weatherproof, high-visibility, multi-risk clothing to workwear, on a par with the #PositiveImpact label values. This novel products offer professionals protection, comfort and ethics, while flying high the Company's values.
"The proximity between our design office and our production lines means we can react quickly to manufacturing needs in our garment workshop in Madagascar. These new service skills, combined with our know-how as a textile manufacturer, will enable us to sell an integrated industrialization service, from upstream to downstream."
"Our environmental management approach connected to the supply chain process is a lever for operational performance in the field. It contributes to our employees' well-being at work, while opening up new avenues for savings and innovation."
"The buyer's job now integrates the ethical aspect into the qualitycost- leadtime trio. Being a responsible buyer means favouring responsible, recycled materials, referencing local suppliers, working together sustainably, whilst ensuring price performance: a daily challenge."
"We're particularly proud that our first partnership in Madagascar for a hybrid solar installation was concluded in 2020, with Epsilon. Epsilon has been an acknowledged player and pioneer in the Madagascan fabric for many years for its responsible approach, its desire to minimize its footprint on the environment, as well as its commitment to local communities. Really, really well done and thank you so much for your trust."
"Preservation of natural ecosystems, water resources and all living organisms is a major challenge in our textile business as well as in the private sphere. There are no big or small actions, only beneficial actions. We work jointly with our industrial partners and employees alike, as part of our drive for progress, awareness-raising and ISO 14001 environmental management."
"Our commitment to Malagasy companies reaffirms Total Madagascar's promise to accelerate the ecological and economic turnaround of new energies, including solar energy. The project with EPSILON on the island of Madagascar is a good illustration of this."
“Care of SNCF uniforms, in particular Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), is a key issue from a regulatory, economic and staff welfare perspective. Professional cleaning is preferred as it ensures that outfits are safely cleaned given the often high levels of dirt and grime. Home care must be ruled out due to the risk of contaminating household laundry. We work closely with our partners at all stages of the process, as well as our manufacturer regarding fabric selection to prolong the life of clothes, through to applying the correct care solution.”
