E ENVIRONMENT Environmental sustainability and elimination of harmful substances Zamasport has always been committed to projects aimed at reducing the environmental impact of manufacturing processes and, over the last few years, it has started to address this issue structurally, by instituting a special department with a dedicated manager. In addition to the overarching goal of protecting the environment from emissions of pollutants, there are at least two others of significant interest: The health of the final consumer, who for some time has become keenly aware of the issue of sustainability, including with regard to fashion; Safety of workers employed by textile and clothing companies, who can be directly exposed to chemical substances that may be potentially harmful to their health. SUSTAINABILITY 2020 production processes project Thanks to the collaboration established with our supply chain, Zamasport has undertaken to reduce the harmful chemical substances used in the textile industry and in the production processes by 2020, following ZDHC’s standards, and works on a day-to-day basis alongside its clients with a view to achieving increasingly important goals to ensure the utmost respect for the environment. By adhering to ZDHC’s standard, which has been adopted by many high fashion brands, Zamasport has introduced a systemic approach with the objective of rendering the entire supply chain increasingly more transparent, clean and aware.
