Miniconf follows the 2030 Agenda, the ONU’s international action program for people, planet and prosperity. Its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and a few of them in particular, are cardinal points for us.
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 long lasting 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 under constant control, seeking to improve it in a consistent, effective and sustainable manner.
Miniconf’s policy leades every effort and investment in this direction.
In 2019 Miniconf approved the Environmental Commitment Manifesto: a path to reducing environmental impact, with concrete medium and long-term objectives

Construction of a photovoltaic system for the Eco-Warehouse of 2,800 square meters, inaugurated in 2012, completely self-powered and with 0 impact.

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.
