What is sustainability?
Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of meeting the needs of future generations. The concept of sustainability is composed of three pillars; economic, environmental and social - also known informally as profits, planet and people.
Big brands often make pledges to sustainability, but it often takes a long time to achieve these goals.
How sustainability works
Sustainability encourages businesses to frame decisions in terms of environmental, social and human impact for the long term, rather than on short term gains such as next quarter's earnings report. It influences them to consider more factors than simply the immediate profit or loss involved. More and more companies are committing to sustainability goals, such as commitment to zero-waste packaging by a certain year, or to reduce overall emissions by a certain percentage.
How to achieve sustainability in the mannequin industry
There are many ways companies can improve sustainability within the mannequin industry, from choosing recyclable products to minimizing packaging. However, there are still limitations, as producing products that have longevity, strength and are visually attractive, but are also environmentally friendly, can come at a high cost.
Our sustainability goal
We are invested in showing that the store mannequin industry can achieve their sustainability goals and hope to encourage brands, large and small, to make the change to more environmentally friendly products. One of our goals over the next few years is to be able to offer sustainable options on all our visual merchandising products, such as our ECO Mannequin, while ensuring these products live up to our clients visual expectations, as well as being affordable.
