Transparency within our supply chain is of high importance to us. To achieve substantial improvements in the supply chain, insight is required: we need to know where the products are produced. Identifying and improving the supply chain is a prerequisite to do our due diligence and take responsibility and minimize potential negative social and environmental risks.
To get more insight in the supply chain we asked RethinkRebels in 2022 to execute a sustainable business scan to identify, understand and manage challenges, to implement more sustainable practices and set goals for the future and get more transparency. One of the conclusions was that our fabric- and garment manufacturers have 100% traceability. The supply chain of our raw material processing and productions has 60% traceability. We aim to increase this traceability to 100% until Tier 4 by the end of 2025 (see images).
To make sure that the RPET is really recycled, we work with garment suppliers that are GRS certified. As this is a strict process with a thorough chain of custody, we check the GRS certificates of each production.
Our goal for 2023/2024 is to get GRS certified as a brand, in order to warrant the end-to-end production and supply chain under GRS certification.
75% of our garments production suppliers are BSCI member to assure fair, safe, and healthy working conditions. The goal is to improve this to 100% in 2024.
From start to finish, we want our products and processes to be honest, transparent and uncomplicated. When it comes to taking responsibility, we believe that sharing our brand's journey with our customers is high on our priority list. It is also in accordance with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Maium supports responsible consumption and production (Goal 12).
