RAISING CONSUMER AWARENESS
S-CAFE, fabric made from coffee grounds
Coffee is much more than just a drink in a cup! It boasts functional properties that enable it to be transformed into textile components. "S.café", created by the Taiwan-based textile company Singtex, is a technical composite fibre made from recycled coffee grounds and partly from recycled PET. It offers excellent breathability and UV protection. Used in the manufacture of clothing, it has the virtue of eliminating odours and is pleasant against the skin, even during intensive activities. This innovative made-in-France fabric provides an interesting alternative to synthetic materials derived from oil. Giving a second life to coffee may be a way to imagine the textiles of tomorrow.

Co-construction of solidarity projects with our stakeholdersCEPOVETT Group has made professional clothing a collaborative and participative subject at all stages of its life, from design to distribution. Because CSR is not a matter to be dealt with alone, the company has, from the outset, integrated the challenges of the circular economy, woven a web between employees and stakeholders, and worked on joint projects in a spirit of mutual aid and solidarity. This co-construction approach extends to relations with suppliers and is reflected in the implementation of solidarity projects involving all stakeholders (customers, suppliers, NGOs, associations, employees, etc.).
In 2017, the solidarity adventure continues for CEPOVETT Group through its Epsilon site, which has partnered with an emblematic and humanist figure on the island of Madagascar: Father Pedro. In order to support the action of this humanist priest who has been working for more than 20 years to integrate Malagasy orphans, the company has set up a partnership in which it undertakes to supply the Malagasy association with school gowns. In return, the 12,000 children will plant 12,000 trees and become collectively involved in the CEPOVETT Group reforestation programme for future generations, "1 child, 1 tree".

2016 ReportProfessional clothing is a strong social vector within an organisation. By making its customers and employees actors in the design of the garment, CEPOVETT Group makes its stakeholders aware of the social and environmental added value of their work clothes. The group focuses on the transparency of the manufacturing process, from cultivation to spinning, as well as on the quality of the raw materials, especially the organically grown and fair trade cotton. In 2015, CEPOVETT Group allowed employees and users of their clothes to get involved upstream of the production chain by participating in the design of a future collection. These meetings make it possible to create garments that are perfectly suited to their needs in terms of both ergonomics and the choice of materials used, and that meet the challenges of safety and protection.
