Lampo and sustainability

Alove story between industry and the environment

In 2021 Lampo strengthened its commitment to sustainability as the key driver of its philosophy.

Its approach does not stop at production but also extends to more human and ethical areas connected to the company.

During its extensive experience, Lampo has obtained important international certification, such as Oeko-Tex Class Standard 100, which identifies products as safe for consumer health, and Greenpeace’s Detox Commitment, under which businesses commit to eliminate from their production processes the chemical substances used to make the most common items of clothing and to publish the emissions of hazardous chemical substances produced by suppliers and sub-suppliers.

ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 relate to Lampo’s hardware impact: the first records organisational benefits and environmental performance, while the second specifies the requirements for achieving workplace health and safety and preventing injuries and health issues. Finally, TF – Traceability & Fashion aims to create a voluntary certification framework for ensuring maximum transparency for consumers.

All of Lampo practices have for decades been aimed at cutting waste and recycling.

The production cycles of metals such as steel, zamak and brass are made up of 85%, 60% and 50% secondary raw material (recycled) respectively. Its weaving plant has been solar powered for ten years and new technologies have enabled the new hardware plant to double its output while cutting water consumption by 30% and the amount of water discharged into the sewers by 35%.

As such, Lampo has decided to formalise its efforts in a selection of sustainable products resulting from the best practices implemented to date. Three classes can now represent the company’s identity: the first uses recycled materials, the second natural materials, while the third creates circularity by using a monopolymer composition. The company has also introduced a code of ethics: a charter of rights, duties and responsibilities that it expressly assumes towards the stakeholders with whom it interacts in its business. Last but not least, was the introduction in 1996 of a corporate welfare policy with an initial second-tier bargaining that established flexible working hours and an annual collective bonus scheme. Whoever chooses Lampo as a partner activates a chain of responsible, sustainable and ethical actions with real positive effects on people, the territory and the economy.
