Mango is making a commitment towards sustainability. Last year, the firm had launched 'Take Action', a project which includes actions aimed at creating a business model based on sustainability criteria and more environmentally-friendly processes. The firm is currently developing a plan which will include future initiatives in this sphere and Mango Committed is one of them.
The fabrics used in the collection are environmentally-friendly, organic and recycled cotton, recycled polyester and Tencel, and are dyed with environmentally-friendly inks in a palette of neutral colours. All garments in the collection have international certificates guaranteeing their sustainable origin and are manufactured in nearby factories in Portugal, Turkey and Morocco.
Mango also participates in the Greenpeace Detox project, which analyses water from wet processes in the supply chain, in order to move towards the elimination of toxic substances. The firm is also developing an internal tool to calculate the company’s water footprint and identify the processes, garments and installations with the greatest water-saving potential, which will help it reduce its water consumption.
Every year, Mango neutralises the CO2 emissions associated with its offices and employee transport through carbon emission offset projects close to its areas of influence. Mango's state-of-the-art logistics centre in Llica d'Amunt and its stores developed under the new 'The Line' concept launched in 2016 incorporate eco-efficiency criteria to reduce environmental impact and include optimised air conditioning and lighting systems (based on the latest LED technology), among other features.
