Previous scorecards: 2012 / 2013 / 2014
Creating more sustainable products, through using more sustainable materials and intermediate processing techniques.
Haikure has continued its work to reduce the impact of its products, including specific impact areas. Haikure could further develop its strategy for delivering these commitments, resulting in a level 1 score of 41%. Haikure integrates more sustainable materials into 21.2% of its overall collection. The brand is yet to increase its use of more sustainable materials, resulting in a level 2 score of 25%. Haikure used a high percentage of sustainable materials and a score of 4% was achieved at level 3.
Managing and monitoring manufacturing impacts (chemicals, energy, water and waste).
Haikure commits to reducing its denim production impacts through the adoption of sustainable fibre and dyeing techniques. There is an opportunity for the brand to assign responsibility for managing those impacts to specific roles, leading to a score of 44% at level 1. Haikure requires direct and indirect strategic suppliers to maintain an Environmental Management Systems (EMS). There is room for the brand to set specific targets for reducing the environmental impacts from manufacturing and to support internal teams with more sustainable procurement. There is also an opportunity for the brand to maintain a Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL), resulting in a level 2 score of 9% and 11% at level 3.
Managing labour standards and human rights in the supply chain.
Haikure continues to source 100% of its collection from a single SA8000 certified factory in Italy. As such, Haikure has covered foundational compliance with the ILO Core Conventions. This is reflected in a level 1 score of 81%. Haikure’s SA8000 certification report for its direct supplier enables it to monitor and manage labour standards for its direct supplier. Haikure is yet to demonstrate how labour standards and human rights are fostered within indirect suppliers, resulting in a level 2 score of 60%. The SA8000 certification covers some best practices, however there still remains room for Haikure to engage beyond its direct suppliers and mitigate risks across its supply chain, resulting in a score of 40% for level 3.
