Responsible Production

A commitment to a sustainable future

In a world facing growing environmental challenges, responsible production is emerging as an essential path to a sustainable future. This approach focuses on the creation and manufacture of products while taking into account social, environmental and economic impacts throughout their life cycle.

Responsible production goes beyond simply manufacturing goods to meet consumer needs. It aims to integrate environmentally-friendly practices, promote fair working conditions and encourage the responsible use of natural resources. This approach is based on a collective awareness, on the part of both companies and consumers, of the importance of our production and consumption choices.

One of the pillars of responsible production is the reduction of our environmental footprint. Responsible manufacturers actively seek to minimize energy consumption, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit waste production. This can be achieved by using renewable energy sources, adopting more efficient technologies and optimizing production processes to reduce waste.

– Of course, we make the factories we work with sign a charter, but that’s not enough.
– We select factories before products – we choose who we work with based on their methods and respect for our charter first and foremost.
– We spend a whole day with the manufacturer to check where subcontractors are located and what their working conditions are.

We validate all the factories and meet with them at least once a year… because it’s by feeling responsible that we can produce responsibly.
Another key aspect of responsible production is the promotion of fair working conditions. This means offering workers decent wages, reasonable working hours, a safe and healthy environment, and opportunities for professional development. Responsible manufacturers ensure that their employees are treated with respect and dignity, and also encourage ethical business practices throughout their supply chain.

– We check as best we can, but our abilities may be limited
– The factories we work with have all undergone social audits by recognized laboratories.
– We also give preference to factories that have had continuous social audits for several years.

Responsible production is also based on the responsible use of natural resources. This means managing raw materials sustainably, promoting the circular economy and reducing excessive consumption. Responsible manufacturers seek sustainable alternatives to traditional materials, recycle and reuse where possible, and promote the design of durable products that last longer.

– We check with factories, subcontractors and the origin of raw materials
– Where possible, we visit raw materials factories to validate the quality of our products.
– We work with factories on eco-design of products to make sure they meet our standard
– We work with product engineers in China who guide us in eco-design and product development.

As consumers, we have a crucial role to play in promoting responsible production. We can opt for products made by companies committed to responsible practices, by checking certifications and making informed choices. We can also reduce our overall consumption, choose sustainable products and encourage manufacturers to adopt responsible practices by expressing our preferences through our purchases.

Responsible production not only benefits the environment and workers, it is also a driver of sustainable economic growth. Companies that integrate responsible practices into their business model are better positioned to meet consumer expectations and anticipate future regulations. They also benefit from greater resilience in the face of resource-related risks and climate change.

In conclusion, responsible production is an essential approach.

Social Responsibility in Industry: Towards an Ethical and Sustainable Commitment

Industry plays a major role in our society, both economically and socially. Today, more and more companies are recognizing the importance of social responsibility and striving to integrate ethical and sustainable practices into their operations. Social responsibility in industry encompasses a wide range of areas, from fair working conditions and environmental impact to community involvement and transparency.

One of the cornerstones of corporate social responsibility is respect for workers’ rights. Companies that adopt this approach ensure that their employees benefit from safe and healthy working conditions, fair compensation, reasonable working hours and professional development opportunities. They also recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion, fostering a fair and respectful working environment.

With this in mind, we are also committed to offering products that embody social values.
We are committed to working with factories that propose real social projects, real development projects, for a better world, everywhere, not just here.

European Heart Program

Our products come from far away and have a high carbon footprint – there’s not much we can do about it, except compensate. We compensate through replanting programs.

On the other hand, when we decide to produce in Europe, we can make a difference!

Stop storing products 2000 km away and shipping them by plane! Let’s prioritize short circuits, local stock, local branding… the whole local socio-economic fabric!

In this program, we’re also developing products made in France
