PACKAGING AND LOGISTICS
Sepai has successfully replaced all plastic in their product packaging with FSC certified paper and redesigned their packaging to allow for less material to be used. The brand also runs a consumer packaging reclamation programme and offers product discounts to incentivise consumer participation. Sepai is able to lower their emissions by manufacturing locally in Spain, avoiding air shipments and limiting the number of shipments to only 3 per week.
SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN
Sepai prides itself on nurturing an ethical and fully traceable supply chain. For Sepai it all begins with choosing the best ingredients. Any raw material supplied by Sepai must be ISO 16128 certified to ensure their natural and organic origin. Priority is given to ingredients closer to home whenever possible to avoid and minimise emissions from transportation. The level of visibility, rigorous supplier selection process and 100% compliance with Codes of Conduct by their subcontracted manufacturers ensures Sepai is able to maximize their positive environmental and social impact throughout the whole value chain. The company has established metrics and goals for the elimination of restricted substances and chemicals of concern from their skincare products.
SUSTAINABILITY CULTURE & COMMUNITY
Ensuring diversity, inclusion and wellbeing of all teams and the local community is a key success factor for Sepai that is also reflected in brand imagery and promotional material. Teams at Sepai are encouraged to develop skills not only for their core job responsibilities but sustainability overall through paid learning and skills development opportunities. The brand partners with Asproseat, a non-profit foundation, to offer employment for people with disabilities.
