BUTTERFLY MARK TESTIMONIAL
Recognizing the urgency of our climate crisis and the fashion industry’s major role in contributing to pollution and climate change, we are committed to doing the hard work and making a significant shift to a sustainable future. We look to Positive Luxury’s expertise in the luxury fashion space related to ESG and we are first movers in pushing the envelope when it comes to technology and innovation promoting a sustainable and circular economy.
The majority of MadaLuxe Group’s impact comes from their distributing and shipping of goods. As such, their company policy which supports the transition of inbound and outbound shipping to be transported via the lowest impact methods is key to reduce their transportation carbon emissions. On their journey, MadaLuxe Group has partnered with forward-thinking couriers, and is researching more innovative methods of transportation and digitisation of their entire operations.
MadaLuxe’s The Jaunt, their direct-to-consumer e-commerce business, has undertaken extensive research on their packaging. Through a formal assessment, they have reduced the environmental impact of this area within their business. By printing with water and soy-based inks, producing cardboard boxes from 90% post-consumer waste recycled material that are FSC certified, they are operating with sustainability front of mind. To help educate the consumer, they have included a QR code that can be scanned to find out details on their sustainability journey.
HEALTH, SAFETY & WELLBEING
As a distributor and warehouse operator, Health, Safety & Wellbeing is a material risk for Madaluxe Group. Due to this they operate with a stringent health & safety policy that includes monthly trainings for all warehouse employees and senior management. MadaLuxe’s warehouse staffing agency, ACS Staffing, also documents risks and corrective actions to ensure they operate at the highest level.
MadaLuxe has an extensive community involvement strategy that spans local culture, skill development, social investment and more. During the emergency humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, their family foundation, CommonTerra, joined forces with Tikva to help successfully bring 300 children and their families out of Ukraine to Romania. The most recent activation partnered with Artolution, launching a large-scale mural project for children and teens in the underserved and marginalised community of Watts in South Los Angeles. They will be launching other programs, as well as ensuring long-term empowerment for the families of these communities.
MadaLuxe Group’s entire ethos is based around sustainability and making all decisions with this at the top of mind. While we have implemented some major changes within our organisation, we’re big proponents of long-term impact through innovation. Our growing focus will be on new innovations within the fashion industry, ranging from materials science, digitisation, and technology to help mitigate the impacts of climate change. We will continue to promote inclusivity and diversity through our community programs that empower and educate our youth.
