Joining the Efforts
Every hundredth stitch results from an enormous and constant collaboration, co-creation, and improvement carried out by all Duckers over the years. Behind this result are the many actions, large and small, to grow our commitment to respect the environment, people, and animals.
To improve their positive impact, among the many initiatives, Save The Duck increased by 8% the recycled fabrics used in its products compared to 2021 (now 28%) and busted the use of certified renewable energy in its facilities and those of its suppliers. 100% of the electricity used to stock the HQ, the offices, and the stores comes from certified renewable sources. Renewable Origin Guarantee Certificates cover purchasing electricity of Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers.
In 2022, Save the Duck saw an improvement from suppliers in their processes, and the company decided to engage them in their regenerative pathway. Some Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers started to self-produce electricity from renewable sources, such as solar panels, and manage and reuse 30-40% of wastewater in their wet processes. Unfortunately, not all the water used in production processes can be recovered. Save the Duck has committed to making it available to those who do not have it through their collaboration with the Sumba Foundation. This non-profit organization provides clean water access to over 30,000 people on Sumba Island, Indonesia. This collaboration enables Save The Duck to balance the 2022 water consumption associated with the production of its garments and related materials by providing water to the island villages.
