SUSTAINABILITY

Zanni is an SA8000 company that respects and promotes diversity.
The company has created a multicultural workplace that guarantees equality and fair opportunities for all employees.
In April 2022 Zanni, included at 100% inside SMT (Società Manifattura Tessile), proudly achieved the SA8000 Certification on corporate social responsibility, confirming its commitment towards employees and collaborators.
By adhering to the SA8000 International Corporate Social Responsibility Standard, Zanni protects its staff and encourages the participation in the company’s objectives, as well as monitoring the application of the same principles to partners, suppliers and contractors.

Thanks also to the use of WHOLEGARMENT technology, Zanni has always decided to follow the path of social and environmental sustainability.

The WHOLEGARMENT technology allows to develop the business with a keen eye on the issue of environmental responsibility:

ZERO WASTE
A WHOLEGARMENT piece is produced in a single item and this allows to consume only the amount of yarn necessary for that garment, without any waste.

EFFICIENCY3D virtual samples created by advanced software are so realistic that they can even replace real samples that, otherwise, require significant time, cost and materials.

IDEAL PRODUCTION SYSTEMThe combination of virtual samples and WHOLEGARMENT technology allows to optimize the use of warehouses and minimize the scraps that would otherwise be thrown away.

A WHOLEGARMENT piece is therefore created exclusively from the necessary material, without waste due to cut and eliminated parts, as happens in the traditional processes, and this makes the processing environmentally-friendly.

From the point of view of the production phase, however, since it does not require any sewing, it could even be produced near the areas of use /consumption, to avoid shipments and reduce the environmental impact.
