Sustainability

Milior puts its sense of responsibility for the environment into practice every day and is committed to creating sustainable fabrics for an increasingly conscious future.

Technology and research for a more sustainable future

In recent years, we have invested heavily in technologies to produce fabrics with minimal environmental impact, and we have dedicated a lot of space to collections with fabrics made from recycled fibers such as wool, cotton, polyester and polyamide.

 Our certifications

Our certification as a concrete tool for our commitment: the concrete nature of our daily commitment is demonstrated by the numerous certifications awarded. Available for our customers for a long time now, to verify the traceability and sustainability of our fabrics:

grs-certificazioni-milior-per-sito

GRS
(Global Recycled Standard)

The Global Recycled Standard is a certification which ensures a high level of sustainability for fabrics that are produced using recycled raw materials for both pre-consumer and post-consumer. This certification allows an organisation to trace their entire production line from beginning to end and is perfectly matched with Milior’s philosophy as they have always understood the importance of using recycled raw materials as part of their collection, as well as using recycled fabrics such as elasticated polyester and polyamide.

bci-certificazioni-milior-per-sito

BCI
(Better Cotton Initiative)

The BCI cotton initiative is responsible for certifying the production of cotton taking into account some very important sustainability factors such as: protecting all production areas, seizing social and economical opportunities which may arise for all involved in the production sectors.

rws-certificazioni-milior-per-sito

RWS
(Responsible Wool Standard)

Responsible Wool Standard (RWS-certified) certifies the origin of virgin wool by tracing the entire production cycle from the raw material. RWS-certified wool comes from sustainable farms that respect animal welfare, the environment and the economic and social conditions of the farmers themselves. 

oeko-tex-certificazioni-milior-per-sito

Standard 100
by OEKO-TEX

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is an independent and internationally uniform testing and certification system for raw materials, semi-finished and finished products in the textile industry at all levels of processing, as well as for the accessory materials used. Our fabrics are tested and certified by OEKO TEX and therefore correspond to and comply with legal regulations regarding ecology, the production process and sustainability.

higg-fem-certificazioni-milior-per-sito

Higg Index

Milior has been a member of the Higg Index since 2019.  The Higg Index is a module to measure the social and environmental impacts of the supply chain and the sustainability performance of the company as a whole. Specifically, the Higg Facility Environmental Module (HIGG FEM) assesses the company’s environmental management system, energy and water use, level of emissions, wastewater treatment, waste management, chemical use and management. The Higg Facility Environmental Module is a sustainability assessment tool that standardizes how facilities measure and evaluate their environmental performance, year over year.
