Relentless commitment

We take part in several multi-stakeholder initiatives, in order to share our knowledge and promote change throughout the whole textile manufacturing sector. We additionally collaborate with the UNITED NATIONS, acting as expert consultants for UNECE for the creation of tools and guidelines related to transparency and traceability for the fashion industry. Together with the SDA Bocconi Sustainability Lab, we are also creating tools to measure and implement circularity as part of the Monitor for Circular Fashion.

Guiding the industry

Alberto Candiani is one of the founding members of the Transformers Foundation and serves on its Founding Board. Thanks to its collaboration with several industry experts, including farmers, suppliers of chemical products, and textile and jeans manufacturers, the Transformers Foundation is establishing itself as the primary benchmark for brands and industry professionals, promoting positive change within the jeans and denim manufacturing industry.

It all begins with training and education

Training, education and sustainability should go hand in hand. Providing training to staff, as well as educating consumers and, more in general, the younger generations, is key to the achievement of a collective awareness for the protection of the planet. We have ongoing collaborations with universities in order share our research with professors, students and partners.
