A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER
I have decided to voice my thoughts on sustainability through my company and take action. We must become aware and work together to take care of our planet. Tackling climate change and the protection of biodiversity, among others, requires us to make dramatic changes, We must protect the planet for future generations and for this we need to act today and not tomorrow.

BUTTERFLY MARK TESTIMONIAL
La Maison MIRÉN is honoured to carry Positive Luxury's Butterfly Mark and with it to be part of those who are committed to the environment. The choice of choosing Positive Luxury to obtain the sustainability certification is because it gives security, transparency and reliability. We wanted to have a serious certification that could represent us internationally and Positive Luxury complies with it. Transparency, reliability and professionalism.
The packaging used by Mirén Paris and its key suppliers is 100% plastic-free. In promoting the development of a circular economy, the luxury shoe brand draws on recyclable and biodegradable materials to ensure the delivery of its products meets short- to long-term sustainability objectives. As Mirén Paris sources shoe parts such as soles and interior reinforcement supports, the packaging used by suppliers derives from sustainable certification processes carried out by standard bearers such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Mirén Paris continues to roll out ambitious targets in the value chain such as ensuring not to use virgin materials while sourcing 100% reusable parts to minimise the environmental impact of both transit and consumer packaging.
MIRÉN Paris has implemented an ethical animal welfare policy covering all its sourcing activities. No Animal will be sacrificed to make MIREN's shoes, since they reuse the residues of the food chain. Leather purchased for its shoes originates from audited and gold or silver rated Leather Working Group tanneries, and suppliers are certified by the Institute of Quality Certification for the Leather Sector. Meanwhile, the leather soles derive from non-intensive livestock farming in which the most humane methods are being practiced. MIRÉN Paris also uses 100% organic silk certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard, which originates from safely hatched silkworms.

Environmental, social, governance and innovation-oriented priorities drive the business strategy and its internal as well as external policies.
