Holistic approach

Everyone wants to do something for the environment... But is it environmental progress
when we only consider the carbon footprint of a product's packaging
and neglect that of its ingredients?

Or when we only consider CO2, without thinking about soil pollution,
fine particle emissions or the depletion of water resources
that manufacturing can induce?

A product can be good in one respect and very bad in many others, so that in the end,
its environmental impact is not at all what we imagined.
That's why we adopt a multi-criteria Environmental Approach
based on the PEF method..


Beyond this multi-criteria approach, the Bilan Carbone, which only measures CO2 emissions, is nevertheless an essential step for any company wishing to take stock of its environmental impact, including its products, activities and infrastructures. With this in mind, we will be carrying out our first carbon footprint assessment in 2024, covering scopes 1, 2 and 3.

We're looking forward to quantifying our CO2 emissions in order to understand where the most promising decarbonization levers lie, set reduction targets and draw up a long-term action plan.


In 2018, the European Union developed and adopted a scientific method, the PEF (Product Environmental Footprint), to rigorously define and assess the environmental footprint.

It takes into account 16 impact categories (depletion of fossil resources, fine particles, freshwater eco-toxicity...) and all stages of the product life cycle.


Because the expertise in hand reweaving has been lost over the past few decades of deindustrialization in Europe, we have been training new teams of reweavers in Braga for the past few months to meet the demand.

These apprentices, guided by expert hands, are gradually acquiring this essential skill in the world of quality knitwear, and are actively helping us to preserve it.


The aim of this scheme is to encourage companies acting as principals of transporters to better integrate the impact of transport into their sustainable development strategy.

We joined this decarbonization program by 2021 and signed an agreement with ADEME to reduce 5% our inbound logistics CO2 emissions by 2024 via 4 families of actions: loading rate, distance travelled, means of transport and responsible purchasing. This project will form part of the broader action plan that will follow on from our carbon footprint in 2024.


According to ADEME (The French Agency for Ecological Transition), packaging is not a significant part of a textile company's carbon footprint. However, reducing plastic pollution helps preserve the biodiversity that is at the heart of our business.

In-store, our bags are made from FSC-certified paper and 70% recycled fiber. They are 100% recyclable. Our e-commerce packaging is made from FSC-certified cardboard, i.e. from sustainably managed forests. They are 100% recycled and recyclable.


An eco-citizen event, an activist collective, an awareness-raising day... Green Friday© is an operation designed to challenge Black Friday and hyper-consumption. It's an initiative we're supporting for the first time this year, to help promote more responsible and sensible forms of consumption, such as limiting waste and encouraging renovation, repair and recycling....


To adopt a sincere Sustainability approach, you need to be convinced, at every level of the organization, of its validity and usefulness. And to do this, you need to understand the problem and the environmental and social issues at stake. That's why our CSR Director has been facilitating awareness-raising workshops for our teams for several months now. After this year's Climate Fresk, there will be the Biodiversity Fresk, 2Tonnes and The Week in the coming months. All of which are designed to raise awareness and stimulate the desire to take action, both individually and collectively.
