SUSTAINABILITY COMMUNICATION

Mabo has always met customers and consumers demand for top quality and creativity by focusing on innovating industrial processes. Now the challenge we have been meeting is to incorporate the values of sustainability and a circular economy into our company vision and mission.
We have signed Greenpeace's Detox commitment. We have adopted an Ethical Code, started the Reach supply chain project, and an EPR to analyze the potential economic value of waste. Now we have started a sustainability process to give cohesion and consistency to the projects already underway and to optimize future projects in a way that we can share with and communicate easily to customers.

Every product in Mabo collections' online and print catalogues will be marked with 5 icons that represent different aspects of sustainability.

The goal is to make it quick and easy for our customers and consumers to understand the sustainable advantages of Mabo accessories.

LEARN ABOUT THE MABO SUSTAINABILITY ICONS:

RESPONSIBLE CHEMICAL USE


Regular wastewater tests confirm the absence of hazardous chemicals. This icon will be applied to all of our products because all of them go through at least one wet process. Mabo's Detox commitment was signed in 2016, and a chemical management system is already in effect both in-house and throughout our supply chain to monitor the use of chemicals products and ensure their compliance with the Detox RSL that Mabo has adopted.

COBALT FREE


The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Class 1 Certification provided by the supplier of this process ensures that the cobalt is less than 1 ppm. This means that the gunmetal gray galvanic treatment can be declared cobalt free as part of Mabo Spa's ongoing effort to eliminate heavy metals from its production processes.

RECYCLING


All processing waste from zamak (die-casting, cutting, etc.) used to manufacture our products, or parts of them, is collected and recycled. To ensure the highest possible quality zamak, these scraps are sent to a foundry that breaks the zamak down into its components (zinc, aluminum, magnesium, and copper) and recreates a prime quality zamak alloy.

RESPONSIBLE WATER CYCLE


The product dyeing process is part of a responsibly-managed water-use cycle. Water use is optimized through two systems: a concentrator for the partial recycling of water and a highly efficient dyeing process. The concentrator is positioned after all of the dyeing tanks and receives their waste water, allowing us to recycle part of it and return it to the dyeing process. Each dyeing tank is optimized for a specific shade, progressing from lighter to darker colors. This lets the same dye bath be used many times over, allowing substantial water savings.

LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT MATERIALS


Corozo is a biodegradable material, collected from spontaneous forests with traditional techniques, without putting biodiversity at risk or causing deforestation.
