Face to face with Paolo Gritti

What are the main steps you have taken towards sustainability?

The search for low-impact materials ranging from natural materials (such as corozo, plant-based and biodegradable materials) to products made from bio-based resins, i.e. from renewable, not fossil fuel-based sources. The renewable percentage of these products is constantly increasing, and is currently at 67%. Our vast range of materials also includes some containing waste from paper, stone, wood and plastic manufacturing, for example. Our company also uses electric energy from renewable sources and it signed up to the Greenpeace Detox programme back in 2015.

What is your approach towards eco certifications?

We support our products with certification attesting to their truthfulness, to avoid easy greenwashing. In general, working with clients from different continents, we can certainly see a discrepancy in the demands for certifications coming from different countries. A greater level of global uniformity in certifications would make this subject, which for many is still unfamiliar, clearer and more manageable.

How do you communicate your ‘green’ policies?

Mainly through our collections, letting our products do the talking. Every season we give plenty of space to eco-sustainable materials, making sure that our ‘green’ philosophy is conveyed directly through our offering.
