Our sustainability team brings together representatives from across the MACVAD Group to bring focus on developing and implementing process to reduce our environmental impact and deliver better solutions to our customers and suppliers.
Our main sustainability objective is to reduce our environmental impact globally and deliver better solutions to our customers by incorporating green practices and standards into our sourcing.
We strive to source products made of eco-friendly materials from efficient and ethical factories that exceed our customers’ requests. This includes reducing the use of non-biodegradable materials such as polystyrene, staples and shrink wrap. MACVAD is also involved in eliminating toxins through sourcing BPA free plastics and we are becoming worldwide leaders in detox programs for garments and textiles factories.
We actively source from factories that use sustainable processes in the manufacturing of our goods, and we monitor and encourage them for continual improvements. This includes using manufacturing processes that have minimal impact on the local environment and their people.
