Logistics, research, traceability, product, circular economy and chemical innovation. These are the key words that outline the sustainability goals for the textile supply chain.
How does LAMPO put these best practices into action?
LAMPO has signed up to Greenpeace’s DETOX initiative: the fashion industry’s first collective commitment to eliminate hazardous chemicals.
- Construction and use of an galvanic system which, while doubling production capacity, has allowed a 30% reduction in water consumption and a 35% reduction in water discharged into the sewerage system.
- Flue gas treatment according to BAT (Best Available Techniques) to achieve missions that meet the highest ecological standards.
- Photovoltaic panels in the weaving house, saving more than 23 tonnes of CO2 in the atmosphere per year.
- Pollution and greenhouse gases are minimised with zinc die casting as the emissions present are negligible. Energy consumption is much lower than in comparable and alternative manufacturing processes, no environmentally harmful cover gases are required and any process waste is recyclable.
- The buildings have been equipped with the most modern thermal insulation technologies (insulating coats, low-emission windows and insulating roofs) to reduce energy consumption and emissions for winter and summer air conditioning.
- All buildings are also free of fibre cement roofing that is dangerous to people and the environment.
- The heating systems have been updated with the most modern and efficient condensing boilers.
LAMPO’s production is fully integrated: every stage of the production cycle is fully in-house. Weaving, sewing, dyeing, blanking, casting, galvanising and assembly are all strictly made in LAMPO. The entire company is in line with this vision: every piece of machinery in use complies with regulations on the environment, safety at work and the workers themselves. Other examples in a trend:
- LAMPO products have been Oeko-Tex certified for more than 10 years and now meet the requirements of Class I of Standard 100, the most restrictive standard for products designed for children.
- All packaging is RESY-labelled, i.e. made from 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard.
- Catalogues, business cards and corporate communication materials are, for the most part, printed on recycled paper.
- Sixty per cent of the nylon used for moulded zips is regenerated and used for other productions.
- All zamak scrap is delivered to companies that recycle it for less demanding products.
- Recovery and recycling of brass offcuts by third-party companies.
- Waste from weaving is passed on to weavers to be used for making rags and dishcloths.
- Waste oils, toners and electronic equipment are properly stored and handled only through skilled and highly traceable intermediaries.
The lighting in the production and administrative departments was replaced with innovative, energy-efficient systems (LED).
Constant research and development is the key to ensuring sustainable design in product development as well. Our collection also includes a section dedicated to products made from materials with certified recycled and/or fully recyclable origin.
