OUR GREEN PROGRAM
Augsburg's vision for the future
WHAT WE DO
Currently at Augsburg
We recommend the use of our waste stock yarns.
We can source recycled, organic and the most eco-friendly yarns.
Within the next 5 years, we will be using 40% of eco-friendly and biodegradable yarns.
We use a machine to recycle yarns by putting them back to cones.
Re-use of all office materials until they can not be used anymore.
We supervise every step of the production tightly so as to avoid technical and human errors, saving time and yarns.
Fully fashion garments (majority of the business) generate less waste than cutting knitted panels.
NO FAST FASHION
We only work with premium to luxury brands.
We do not contribuate to fast-fashion’s massive volumes of generated waste.
Certified by Intertek , Astra Supply Chain services and Workplace conditions assesment, accredited by the National ministry of the Environment and Climate change.
We are controlled on the handling of our waste, quality of air, level of noise, level of pollutant substances, soil protection and use of packaging.
Collaborating with specialized organisations.
And exporting smarter
We source our raw materials from Italy, which is a short distance from Romania.
We use ECO PURE certified polybags, depending on the client’s wishes.
We group all shipments together and ship at once as much as needed.
We eliminate dangerous substances from our production cycle.
We mostly use natural fibres yarns.
Use of natural washing bio-enzymes detergents and products in the washing department
We have washing balls to propose a 100% chemical-free washing.
We follow the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) protocol.
And commitments to become an eco-friendly factory, which is vital for the planet’s well-being.
CHANGING OUR ENERGY
Within the next 5 years, we will be installing photovoltaic panels.
We make sure to efficiently use natural light.
We are changing 80% of lights to LED and CFL.
GENERATE CLEAN ENERGY
We are developping a new software that will allow all processes to go smoother.
We use efficient / new machinery. Inefficient machines pollute up to 70% more.
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.
We propose our clients our overstock yarns at a more competitive price.
USE OUR WATER
Tight control of our water usage in all departments, from washing to steaming.
Make our waste water available for toilet flushing and external irrigation.
RECYCLE, REUSE, REDUCE
To use 75% recycled or organic materials which require little processing.
To recycle all materials produced. Only use products that serve multiple purposes which last for years.
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.
