share goals and results

Sustainable development is a challenge that involves everyone: governments, institutions, NGOs, companies and individuals. We feel that its global nature calls for a shared approach and interventions connected by a common thread, resulting more effective the larger the group of people involved. The 4sustainability® is based on this founding principle, or rather on the idea that working together means that results are achieved sooner, maximising the results. The tangible expressions of this commitment include Process Factory’s adhesion to a number of international initiatives that we will explain in more detail below, selected for their seriousness and for the consensus in the goals pursued by its members with a view to sustainable development. First and foremost are the guidelines provided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agreed for 2030 by the United Nations within the framework of the Global Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The greatest ever strategic corporate citizenship initiative in the world. The businesses and organisations that, like Process Factory, have chosen to participate are committed to sharing, supporting and applying to their own sphere of influence a series of fundamental principles related to human rights, working standards, environmental protection and the fight against corruption.

A non-profit organisation set up to help businesses, governments and NGOs to communicate their impact on the economy, the environment and society. Its objective is to create standards that can be used to report on sustainability performance for organisations of all kinds, sizes and locations. Process Factory has always referred to the GRI, having adopted the standards for sustainability reporting.

An international coalition for sustainable production, to which the most important fashion and luxury brands as well as companies from the fabric and leather sectors belong. SAC develops the Higg Index, a suite of standardised tools for the measuring of environmental and social sustainability of businesses and their supply chains. SAC provides Process Factory with updated skills and knowledge that provide support for businesses in the Higg assessment process.

A global non-profit organisation whose mission is to lead the conversion of the sector towards the use of responsible fibres, standards and supply networks. Textile exchange, of which Process Factory is an active member, works to favour the acceleration of sustainable practices throughout the value chain, and in order to minimise, at every level, the harmful impact of the global textile industry.

ZDHC is the international programme that brings together the most important fashion brands, companies in the supply chain and those that provide support on various levels to the activities that gravitate around the common goal of eliminating the use of toxic and harmful chemical substances in production. Process factory is a contributor to ZDHC, as well as the first certified training provider in Italy for Chemical Management.
