Code of
conduct

Compliance with the Miniconf Code of Conduct on the part of suppliers is ensured by a specific Auditing program that enables us to select only those partners with the best technical and ethical fundamentals, including the rejection of any form of discrimination, exploitation and child labour, as well as respect for the environment and safety standards.

Many actions,
big and small,
for people:

  • Long-term collaboration with the Meyer Hospital in Florence;
  • Support of the Lega del Filo d’Oro in the creation of the Association’s new National Centre at Osimo;
  • Support for the Umberto Veronesi Foundation, “Gold for Kids” campaign;
  • Support for Special Olympics;
  • Development of ecological educational projects with Italy’s nursery and primary schools;

Environment

Since it was set up, environmental protection has been part of the DNA of Miniconf, a company born on the outskirts of the Casentino Forests National Park.

For Miniconf the obligation to produce durable and wear-resistant garments is closely linked to the objective of limiting waste and hence the rate of pollution.
The life span of a garment ensures its reuse for more than one season and therefore, the reduction of the disposal impact at the end of its life cycle.

Since 2003 Miniconf has formally adopted the ISO 14001 environmental management system,; it keeps the environmental impact of its activities under constant control, seeking to improve it in a consistent, effective and sustainable manner

Miniconf’s policy channels every effort and investment in this direction.

In 2019 Miniconf approved the Environmental Commitment Manifesto: a long term journey to reducing the company’s environmental footprint and increasing the positive social impact.

Respect for animals

In 2013, after joining the international Fur Free Standard by LAV Italy, Miniconf has announced that the company will no longer use animal fur in its designs or new products.

The animal fur was replaced by comfortable, warm and beautiful synthetic and natural textile materials.

In order to ensure animal welfare and “animal friendly” kids fashion, we are keeping adopting new ethical policies. In 2018 and in 2020 we made other important choices: none of our products will contain leather, down and feathers any more.
