Sustainability at ÉTICA: A Brand Committed to Environmental and Social Responsibility
At ÉTICA, sustainability is not just a buzzword – it is the essence of our brand. We are committed to creating high-quality, fashionable clothing while minimizing our environmental impact and promoting fair labor practices. With a great environmental rating, a great labor rating, and a great animal rating, we strive to be a leader in sustainable fashion.
ÉTICA understands the importance of using eco-friendly materials, and we make conscious choices to incorporate them into our products. We use a medium proportion of recycled materials, reducing the demand for virgin resources and minimizing waste. To further ensure the sustainability of our fabrics, they are certified by Bluesign, a reputable organization that sets rigorous standards for environmental performance.
But our commitment to the environment goes beyond just using eco-friendly materials. We also implement water reduction initiatives throughout our supply chain, recognizing the importance of preserving this precious resource. By reducing greenhouse gas emissions from our manufacturing processes, we strive to minimize our carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier planet.
Ensuring fair and ethical labor practices is a top priority for ÉTICA. We believe that every worker involved in the production of our clothing deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. That’s why we go above and beyond to maintain a great labor rating.
All our factories and mills are audited by Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) Best Practice Guidance and Bluesign, ensuring that they meet the highest ethical standards. Our Code of Conduct covers all of the International Labour Organization’s Four Fundamental Freedoms principles, guaranteeing fair wages, safe working conditions, and the prohibition of forced labor and child labor.
We also understand the importance of supply chain transparency. ÉTICA traces most of its supply chain, allowing us to ensure that every step involved in the production of our clothing is ethical and sustainable. In addition, we prioritize paying a living wage in the final stage of production, acknowledging the significance of fair compensation for workers.
For animal lovers and advocates, ÉTICA has great news. We are proud to state that our entire product range is vegan. We firmly believe that fashion can be cruelty-free, and we make it a point to ensure that no animal products are used in any of our designs. This commitment to animal welfare has earned us a great animal rating.
