Ethics and Sustainability

ACM products are created with particular attention to both consumer health and environmental wellbeing: all the materials used comply with the current European regulations (REACH-EU regulation 1907/2006) and the specifications of the most demanding customers.

Certifications

Eco-toxicological tests are carried out regularly in accredited laboratories to ensure compliance with the standards required by the P-RLS, of its main customers, already in the sampling phase of products. Since 2018, ACM has been monitoring its supply chain and extending its test program to ensure the excellence of its production process, also from the chemical point of view. In this framework, there is the recent adoption of our own series of P-RSL, in line with the strictest limits established by DETOX , AFIRMGroup and some of the most important brands on the market.

Certified Raw Materials

The consolidated network of raw materials suppliers allows to activate qualified and performing resources at all times, in order to offer only the best to the ACM customers.

Almost 40 years of experience in the fashion sector are a concrete quality certification : The attention in the management and in the control of the production chain is maximum and guarantees the respect of the most strict regulations in toxicological matters.

Processes and Machining

The entire production process pays particular attention to sustainability, minimizing the impact on the environment and offering an ideal working environment to employees. A photovoltaic system of 138 kwp total (94 ACM srl and 44 NEXT srl) and LED lamps, both inside and outside the building, allow to optimize energy consumption.

Since 1992, with the construction of the button factory department, a waters recirculation plant, which are cleaned and reused for washing and button tumbling, avoids water waste. Recent analyses of water residues have confirmed the absence of harmful chemicals throughout the processing process.

Green Chemistry Policy

The challenge for which ACM has always committed itself has always been the integration of sustainability values with its own company policy and ethics. As a partner and supplier of the most important clothing and leather goods brands, ACM has launched concrete actions for a more sustainable fashion. Since 2019 we have chosen to use only recycled paper, replaced the old plastic bags used for samples with new 100% recyclable bags and containing 20% recycled material to limit the environmental impact. In addition, from a circular economy perspective, ACM researches and selects new innovative materials with natural components, which reduce the use of plastic from 5% to 60%, or insert waste from other production processes.
