Since April 2023 we have been working with Made2Flow to produce life cycle assessments for our styles. Made2Flow GmbH is a company that applies the Life Cycle Assessment method according to ISO 14040 and the PEF-CR guidelines. For this purpose, we provided all necessary data such as contacts to supplying companies, materials, quantities, etc. to have a personalized result determined for our swimwear. For the start, our Classics Collection was analyzed, as it is an integral part of our assortment.
What is a life cycle assessment?
A life cycle assessment, also known as a life cycle assessment (LCA), is a standardized method for calculating the impact of a product, process, or service on the environment. LCA is a scientific approach to assessing the environmental impact of products, processes, or services. LCA collects extensive data on environmental impacts, such as emissions from energy production, solid and liquid wastes, and the production of raw materials. Environmental indicators use measurable variables to describe complex environmental problems. These indicators include greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and land use.
By preparing these life cycle assessments, we obtain more accurate and comprehensive information about the environmental impact of our products along our supply chain. In the medium term, this may lead to insights into where there is potential for optimization. On this basis, targeted measures can be taken to achieve our ambition of groundwater and climate neutrality. MYMARINI aims to be 100% groundwater neutral by 2025 and 100% climate neutral by 2030. To achieve these ambitions, a reliable data basis is essential. Life Cycle Assessments provide a solid basis to measure progress toward these goals and adjust where necessary.
Which parts of the supply chain are considered?
All product life cycle stages are considered when preparing a life cycle assessment. This includes the sourcing of raw materials, production, transportation, use, and disposal of the product. Each of these stages can have different environmental impacts, and therefore it is important to look at the entire supply chain.
At MYMARINI, we believe in transparency so that you, the consumer, can make an informed decision. That's why we're committed to providing you with as much information as possible about our products, from the materials we use to the manufacturing process.
