Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
Sustainable consumption and production is about doing more with less resources. Today we consume much more than what is sustainable for the planet.
To ensure good living conditions for current and future generations, every single consumer must also change their lifestyle. This means reducing the use of resources, environmental damage and climate emissions as a society and as an individual. In the long run, this will lead to economic growth, limit climate change and increase the quality of life of people on earth.
What does IDÉ House of Brands do
We encourage our customers to choose quality over quantity. In addition, our purchasing department works continuously to challenge our factories to reduce waste, reuse excess material and recycle according to current regulations in their region.
A circular mindset around products we produce will have a positive effect on goal 12. We will mark the products we make with correct waste management so that the materials are recycled correctly and reused.
In our industry, packaging is important, both because it can communicate a message, but also because it protects the pressure on the product. We are constantly working to reduce unnecessary use of packaging where possible, where the product depends on packaging, we will always choose the most environmentally friendly alternative based on the customer's needs.
