Mainetti + Reca Group
On 12 September the PROCESSO VIRTUOSO (VIRTUOUS PROCESS), the sustainability summit organised by the Mainetti Group in partnership with Reca Group, was held in Milan. The event tackled the issue of the whole group’s activity plan for developing a successful eco-sustainable production project.
Welcoming the many guests was writer and radio and TV presenter Paola Maugeri. The meeting examined the environmental crisis through testimonials and the solutions offered by the expert speakers. The explorer Alex Bellini presented the project 10 RIVERS 1 OCEAN, telling of the urgent need to fight “the plastics” and communicate a new sense of understanding and respect for our planet. The creative solutions of LABORATORIUM by Bibi Ronchi’s firm Chiron immersed the participants in the sustainable imagination of the new trends for winter 20/21. The day was enriched by the collections of Clara Merlino Fantoccoli, a historical manufacturer of green fabrics, and by the Napapijri MADE FOR CHANGE programme, which through the words of Elisabetta Baronio, sustainability & CSR coordinator of the VF corporation, documented the need for circular business models. Following on, Serena Loquercio offered a testimonial of the experience of ISKO, global denim manufacturer and the only member of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition in Turkey, representing one of the world’s first manufacturing companies to obtain a performance score meeting the FEM environmental standards. The day ended with the environmental projects and future vision of LIFEGATE, the strategic sustainability consultant that, with Reca Group and Mainetti, underlined the favourable elements for developing a successful eco-sustainable project: REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE.
