Creating more sustainable products, through using more sustainable materials and intermediate processing techniques.
Haikure has continued its commitment to reducing the impact of products through the environmental policy of its owned garment supplier C&S Com SrL. This commitment includes specific impact areas for denim (e.g., water, energy, chemicals). There is room to further develop a strategy for delivering its commitments which covers both sustainable fibres and wet processing and to implement policies and communicate its requirements to its supplier. These activities have resulted in a level 1 score of 53%.
This year Haikure has changed its product lines, resulting in a lower percentage of more sustainable materials being integrated into its collection compared to last year. The brand claims its uses 32% more sustainable materials, these include Better Cotton, recycled cotton and linen. Haikure has started to identify the intermediate processing techniques used in it products. There is still room for the brand to support its internal teams to use more sustainable fibres, to formalise it targets for developing more sustainable products and to assign responsibility for meeting these targets to senior manager. These activities have resulted in a score of 25% at level 2.
As 32% of its total collection uses sustainable materials, Haikure have been awarded a score for one requirement. Haikure did not submit evidence for any other requirement at level 3, resulting in a score of 4%.
