OUR GREEN PROGRAM
Augsburg's vision for the future
WHAT WE DO
Currently at Augsburg
We supervise every step of the production tightly so as to avoid technical and human errors, saving time and yarns.
We have photovoltaic panels which provide 40% of our energy.
We mostly produce fully fashion garments, which generate less waste than cutting knitted panels.
We use a machine to recycle yarns by putting them back to cones.
NO FAST FASHION
We only work with premium to luxury brands.
We do not contribute to fast-fashion’s massive volumes of generated waste.
We meet the performance criteria of Workplace Conditions Assessment by Intertek, evaluating the following areas: Labour, Wages and Hours, Health and Safety, Management System, Environment.
We are accredited by the National Ministry of the Environment and Climate change.
We are a RWS certified factory which addresses the welfare of sheep and of the land they graze
on and respects the Five Freedoms of animal welfare. As a garment manufacturer, we respect the Content Calim Standard requirements. This makes sure that the identity of the RWS wool is maintained from the farmer to the end product.
We have a waste management approach which is responsible and respects national regulations and laws.
We record energy usage and water usage, and we annualy set targets to reduce energy usage. Any hazardous substances are handled according to national regulations.
Certified by ICEA
And commitments to become an eco-friendly factory, which is vital for the planet’s well-being.
USING WHAT WE HAVE
Cogeneration (combined Heat and Power).
System using boilers heat to be reused as ironing steam.
USE OUR WASTE
Our waste can be incinerated to be used as heat energy.
USE OUR WATER
We tightly control our water usage in all departments, from washing to steaming.
We plan to make our waste water available for toilet flushing and external irrigation.
RECYCLE, REUSE, REDUCE
We aim to use 75% recycled or organic materials which require little processing.
We aim to recycle all materials produced and only use products that serve multiple purposes which last for years.
We aim to use only certified recycled packaging for all brands when shipping samples & production.
Reduction of CO2 emissions through the deployment of low carbon process technologies
Reduction of water consumption through the use of 3R technologies (Reduce, reuse, recycle).
Implementation of environmental management to conserve biodiversity, management of chemicals and cooperation with local communities.
To plant trees each year, reducing Carbon Footprint.
Use of low-energy evaporative cooling systems replacing air conditionings and dissipated heat from machine tools.
Making on-demand production and mass customization will result in a reduction of the waste stock produced.
We are currently training to be able to make 3D samples for our customers, with a special computerised program reducing the sampling time, the amount of parcels shipped and the yarn usage.
