Our results

Renewable energies, waste and chemical management: we have already taken the primary steps towards respecting the Planet. At the same time, we have started a challenging, exciting and necessary journey into a broader mosaic of sustainable practices. Here you will find our results, one step at a time.

Renewable energy: 100%

Framis has achieved its target of using only renewable energy in its production facility. More than 50% of electric energy is provided by a 6500sqm photovoltaic panel system. Furthermore, the remaining 50% Furthermore, the remaining 50%  has certified origin from hydroelectric sources, neither using fossil fuels in the energy production process nor emitting pollution.

Chemical recycling: 88%

Framis Italia does not release chemical elements into the atmosphere or burn them during its production. The 88% of the components that are contained in the polyurethane do evaporate and are collected by a condenser. The obtained material is sent to a specially authorized centre which, through a distillation process powered by renewable energy, separates the components that are now ready to be reused in further productions.

Waste management: 

100% recovery

Framis Italia manages waste and its recycling as an essential tool for tackling environmental pollution. All the waste we generate is already reintroduced into the circle through energy or material recovery.

Microplastics impact 99,997%

The ocean, the biodiversity, the protection of the biosphere are our priorities. Thanks to a research  with an external center (CentroCot) to analyze the behavior of our products from the point of view of the microplastics release during washing, we found that the quantity released is equal to about 0.003% of the product used, a result lower than the average of recycled polyester fabrics (0.005%).

Sustainable packaging

We have implemented several R&D initiatives in order to promote the use of recycled materials or solutions, with low environmental impact, for everything related to packaging (cardboard boxes, plastic bags, etc.). The result is the choice and the use of materials with the highest standards of quality and sustainability and that have been certified according to the most demanding standard in the industry.

Work safety: 100%

Framis Italia records ZERO accidents at work thanks to serious prevention and scheduled maintenance on all systems to avoid malfunctions. We also invest in up-to-date training for all employees and implement a clear and well-defined organization chart.

Our certifications

Why do we certify ourselves, and why will we continue to do so? To be able to communicate transparency and to measure ourselves against our competitors and stakeholders. Our commitment is to choose the most accredited and functional certifications for our business. Framis Italia production processes and products are already OEKOTEX Standard 100 and BlueSign certified.

Framis Italia is investing in the sustainability process with projects that are under development, the most important being:

Traceability of the supply

chain,

The 4Trace Project

Framis Italia has kick-started the 4Trace process: we require suppliers to manage the traceability information of their production and supply chain and the origin of the raw materials used. The traceability information must document the identification and traceability of the production batches of each component and material in its various stages of transformation.

Only good chemistry

Framis has adopted the 4sustainability® Chemical Management Protocol to implement the MRSL ZDHC with a structured method (definitivelymaptozero.com) and constantly measure it transparently manner, its level of application. In line with our mission, ("To lead breakthrough Innovation in Fashion. To grow towards a happier future for the industry and the Planet.") we have decided to scientifically, accurately and systemically eliminate any risk that may come from toxic and harmful chemicals.

Green Match  

Framis Italia is the promoter and leader of the Green Match program, founded by the ERDF European Regional Development Fund: a project that aims to research, develop and apply new solutions in the production of polyurethane, keeping sustainability as the primary objective. It also aims to revolutionize polyurethane-based films, tapes and laminated fabrics using innovative ecological coating and extrusion processes.

Research and Development

Framis Italia is committed to the continuous development of an eco-friendly innovation of its production processes, thanks to the Research and Development department and investments in advanced machinery and technologies, such as the extrusion process.
