Canepa commits to zero effluent discharge by 2020

In line with CANEPA TESSITURE SERICA SPA’´s long term sustainability program CANEPA TESSITURE SERICA SPA recognizes the urgent need for eliminating industrial releases of all hazardous chemicals.

According to its approach based on prevention and the Precautionary Principle CANEPA TESSITURE SERICA SPA is committed to zero discharges of all hazardous chemicals from the whole lifecycle and all production procedures that are associated with the making and using of all products CANEPA TESSITURE SERICA SPA produces and / or sells by 01 January 2020.

We recognise that to achieve this goal, mechanisms for disclosure and transparency about the hazardous chemicals used in our global supply chains are important and necessary, in line with the ‘Right to Know principle'. In line with this principle we will increase the public availability and transparency of our restricted substance list and audit process and will set up public disclosure of discharges of hazardous chemicals in our supply chain.

CANEPA TESSITURE SERICA SPA also commits to support systemic (i.e. wider societal and policy) change to achieve zero discharge of hazardous chemicals (associated with supply chains and the lifecycles of products) within one generation or less. This commitment includes sustained investment in moving industry, government, science and technology to deliver on systemic change and to affect system change across the industry towards this goal.

The 2020 goal also demands the collective action of industry, as well as engagement of regulators and other stakeholders. To this end, CANEPA TESSITURE SERICA SPA will work with other companies in the apparel sector and other brands we sell, as well as material suppliers, the broader chemical industry, NGOs and other stakeholders to achieve this goal.
