Good chemistry as a competition factor
In 2013, Brachi contributes with Process Factory to the creation of 4sustainability, making its technical expertise on the chemistry applied to products and processes in the fashion industry available. 4sustainability is the first Italian line of services designed for the sustainable development of fashion brands and companies in the supply chain (Chemical Management 4s Protocol).
This initiative is the expression of a commitment to sustainability coming from afar and is also reflected at an international level in joining Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals, the Foundation for the elimination of toxic and harmful chemicals from the production processes in which major brands in the world are involved.
As a ZDHC contributor, Brachi works with the best laboratories in the Laboratory Advisory Group for the development of the methods necessary to identify chemical substances. It is also Accepted Laboratory for Waste Water and ZDHC MRSL Conformance Indicator for chemical product testing.
In order to optimize the recovery of pre-consumer waste and post-consumer clothing, Brachi collaborates with Process Factory to build a PRSL to be applied to recycled raw materials, in which the control of toxic and harmful chemicals plays a key role.
This commitment is consistent with the Prato district's vocation for recycling that Brachi has always aimed to enhance, being aware of the function it can have in the success of a circular economy model.
