Sustainability

TOWARDS A MORE SUSTAINABLE POM AMSTERDAM
At POM Amsterdam, we have changed our mission. We don't just want to empower women with colourful fashion, but with colourful and sustainable fashion. Why? Because we want to make people happy with our fashion, but we also realise that the production process harms our planet. Therefore, we want to do our best to minimise that negative impact.

Let's be open and honest: at this moment, POM Amsterdam is not as sustainable as we would like it to be. Sustainably making clothes is a huge challenge. A lot of energy, raw materials and water are needed to create a new dress.

In addition, the production of clothing causes CO2 emissions, and the production process impacts people and animal welfare. With a more sustainable POM Amsterdam, we consider nature and check whether the production process takes place under the right working conditions.

ECO & ANIMAL FRIENDLY MATERIALS

We want to work with eco-friendly(er) fabrics, such as lyocell (also known as Tencel), eco-vero or organic cotton. We also want to work more with recycled materials, such as recycled polyester. For animal welfare reasons, we do not work with fur, Angora wool and exotic leathers. For the same reason, we prefer to use cupro or lyocell instead of silk. Various certificates provide insight into the sustainable processing of the fabrics: GOTS, GRS, FSC and Oeko-tex Standard100.

RESPONSIBLE PACKAGING

The bags, boxes, clothing labels and other materials we use to package our products are made from recycled materials or materials produced sustainably.

CERTIFIED PRODUCTION COMPANIES

It is important to us that our products are made in a production facility that takes good care of its employees. Quality, not price, is the leading factor in the selection of our production companies. We also check whether production companies have a minimum BSCI-3 score. Preferably, the supplier also works with SEDEX and GOTS. In addition, we visit our suppliers annually, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

ORIGIN AND TRANSPORT

We aim to reduce the impact of the transport of our products as much as possible. We want to do this by producing our clothing as locally as possible. Unfortunately, this is not always possible as we are bound to specific product expertise or workshop production times. If we cannot produce within Europe, we prefer to transport by train rather than boat or plane. The CO2 emissions are leading in this choice.
For shipping to consumers, we use DHL and participate in the DHL 'go green' programme. We pay a surcharge per package, enabling DHL to invest in its electric network, intending to produce 77 per cent less CO2 emissions in 2025 than in 2020.

We express our intention to reduce our CO2 emissions step by step and become a CO2 neutral company by 2030.
We want to achieve this by using as many eco-friendly materials as possible in our collections, packing our products in responsible packaging. Finally, we want to produce more locally and work with transport partners to transport our items more sustainably.
Unfortunately, CO2 emissions cannot be completely avoided, so we will calculate and compensate the remaining emissions annually.
