We’re committed to making the world a place that is considerate of everyone’s needs. This means doing everything we can to become more planet-friendly. The first step is reviewing where we’re at right now, by measuring:
Our greenhouse gas emissions from the global value chain.
Importance of water risk management in our supply chain.
Effective control of hazardous chemicals in our products and processes.
We are actively working to comprehend the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the Triumph value chain, with a specific focus on reducing carbon emissions. To achieve this, we have identified and classified our GHG emissions into three scopes:
- Scope 1 emissions encompass the controlled sources arising from our production centers and warehouse operations.
- Scope 2 emissions arise from the energy purchased to operate our production centers, distribution centers, offices, and retail stores.
- Scope 3 emissions are associated with our purchased raw materials, logistics, and the operations of our suppliers.
We have a comprehensive understanding of the water risk zones within our supply chain, and we actively collaborate with our business partners to enhance their water conservation efficiency. This is achieved by implementing water recycling opportunities and closely monitoring their impact.
To safeguard the health of our customers from hazardous chemicals we have adopted a strict chemical management program to restrict usage of harmful chemicals in our supply chain. We have implemented ‘Restricted Substances Policy’ and tested the garments the presence of restricted substances. Further we ensure our material and finished goods suppliers mandatorily abide to it and reduce the impact of chemicals in our value chain.
As an RSL is a list of hazardous chemicals that their presence is restricted below a stipulated threshold in finished textile products, we aim to reduce or eliminate the usage of the restricted chemicals in the production of raw materials and finished textile products. This will also help prevent the discharge of hazardous chemicals into the wastewater stream.
We have created an environmental materiality matrix to identify key issues that are significant for Triumph.
Our journey to account for greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption across our value chain has begun. We are actively working on standardizing data sources and establishing a robust monitoring process.
What’s happening now?
We’re calculating our greenhouse gas emissions within our own operations and throughout our entire supply chain and adopting GHG emission accounting system based on GHG protocol.
We’re keen to enhance traceability and accountability by extending environmental monitoring to core fabric suppliers within our supply chain.
We aim to set targets and start acting to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and explore opportunities to enhance the adoption of renewable energy in our supply chain.
We intend to implement MRSL into our entire supply chain.
We follow the environmental 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) whenever possible in our own facilities as well as in our supply chain.
Reduce – cut down the resources used
Reuse – use the same resources again
Recycle – use the resources itself as resources
We are constantly seeking improved solutions in all aspects of our operations.
- We have ceased delivering online orders in plastic polybags, marking a significant step towards eliminating plastic usage.
- We are actively reusing hangers whenever possible and transitioning to hangers made from recycled plastic materials.
- We are launching a reuse and recycle program in stores across select markets. For more information, please visit Together We Grow.
We are dedicated to optimizing water consumption in our operations by implementing appropriate technologies and driving behavioral changes among our employees through awareness programs. To enhance water resource utilization efficiency, we have implemented the following measures:
- Conducting water audits to identify areas for improvement.
- Installing water-efficient fixtures to minimize water usage.
- Recycling treated wastewater to create green areas surrounding our production centers.
- Replenishing the utility cooling water system to ensure sustainable water utilization
We’ve completely eliminated our use of plastic blister boxes.
We collected our hangers in 8 European countries for re-usage or recycling purposes.
What’s happening now?
We’re working to eliminate single-use plastic from our packaging and product equipment. We’re also collecting and reusing hangers in more European countries.
We have a plan in place to reduce material usage in our packaging across the board.
We intend to implement the reuse of plastic thread cones at our factory in Vietnam, thereby aiming to decrease our reliance on virgin plastic.
