Sustainability is high on our agenda. By taking care of the environment, Twinlife leaving a smaller footprint on our planet, we feel responsible and want to do better.
In order to make more sustainable choices, our stakeholders not only want to know where we produce our goods and under what circumstances this takes place, but also how we monitor our supply chains. Chain transparency is therefore an important part of our sustainability policy and a strict condition before entering into a relationship with a supplier.
We believe that even the smallest step counts, as long as there is progress!
We focus on a number of aspects:
Transparency in our production chain and good working conditions in our factories (social compliance) Transparency is an important part of our sustainability policy and a strict condition before entering into a relationship with a supplier. To ensure that our suppliers operate in a sustainable manner, take responsibility for the working conditions of their employees and the environment, they must sign our Code of Conduct. This CoC contains our rules of conduct and the standards and values on which HVEG Fashion Group is based.
In addition, we monitor all factories we work with against the guidelines of the amfori BSCI code of conduct through independent social audits. All our factories – whether in high-risk countries or not – are BSCI audited and have at least a C rating. In addition to amfori BSCI, several of our companies are members of the Bangladesh Safety Agreement (Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety).
Finally, we aligned our CSR strategy with the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Within the framework of this sustainability agenda, we have selected four main themes on which we as an organization have the most influence. These themes are: SDG 6 clean water and sanitation, SDG 8 decent work and economic growth, SDG 12 responsible consumption and production and SDG 15 life on land.
HVEG Fashion Group recognizes the Detox Commitment and the ZDHC initiative, which aim to comply with chemicals that have a harmful effect on health or the environment. We work with our suppliers to ensure that chemicals are used correctly.
Our goal is to phase out all ZDHC chemicals in our production processes by the end of 2030. In addition, we work with amfori BEPI to measure the energy, water and chemical use of our producers and help our manufacturers to optimize them.
Twinlife uses sustainable materials wherever possible. We continue to closely monitor new developments in this regard and incorporate them into our collections.
Cotton These include the Organic Content Standard (OCS) and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which are standards for organically grown cotton. By using recycled cotton yarn we give new life to post-consumer clothes, we dump less clothes in landfills, we reduce CO02 emissions and we reduce the amount of water and pesticides used. By purchasing more sustainably produced cotton, we contribute to minimizing pesticide use and more efficient water use.
Polyester and acrylic Worldwide, about 60 percent of the material from which clothing is made consists of synthetic fibers such as polyester, nylon and acrylic. The production of these substances is accompanied by a high energy consumption. Nevertheless, these substances offer a number of advantages because these materials lend themselves well to recycling. In addition, synthetic fabrics can often be washed at low temperatures and dry quickly, which means they score well on energy efficiency. With regard to our sustainable polyester, we have entered into a partnership with Repreve®. Repreve® is a family of synthetic fibers made from 100% recycled water bottles with fiberprint technology, making them fully traceable. Also with Repreve® yarns use less water and energy compared to virgin polyester. In both cases, fewer greenhouse gases are emitted.
Our packaging is also made from sustainable materials as much as possible. FSC paper and recycled polyester for labeling and poly bags made of recycled plastic. All our sustainable garments that are less harmful to our environment bear a recognizable sustainability label.
Repreve is the world's leading recycled high-performance polyester fiber. So far . has Repreve already reused more than 10 billion plastic bottles. Twinlife Used Repreve in various articles as an alternative to regular polyester.
