measure and improve

The fashion industry is geared towards trends and constant innovation. The growing demand for more sustainability is met with new "sustainable" initiatives and "eco-labels" every day. While many of these initiatives are commendable, they are often not implemented comprehensively or the approach is simply wrong. The causes are not fought, but mainly the symptoms are alleviated. And the jungle of labels and certificates is becoming increasingly confusing and complex. As a consumer, how should you keep an overview and what makes sense and what doesn't?

At MUNTAGNARD, we do not mark our products with specially created "green" labels. We want to create transparency and impart knowledge . You as a consumer should be given a basis for decision-making and additional information should be provided about which areas we consider relevant in order to produce sustainable textiles.

We do this with an extensive and sophisticated rating system. With the so-called Muntagnard Impact Assessment , sustainability in textiles should be covered as comprehensively as possible and explained simply.

The Muntagnard Impact Assessment (MIA) is a simplified solution that allows you to better understand and classify our products from a sustainable perspective. We want to reduce the complexity of sustainability to the aspects that are most relevant to us and communicate it as simply as possible.

Why is MIA needed?

Buying clothes and the sustainability issue itself are complex enough. We therefore want to offer you a simple comparison and break down the relevant criteria as comprehensibly as possible. At the same time, MIA serves us as our own location determination for our products. It shows us optimization potential and improvement possibilities, so that we can continuously develop our processes and products.

How does MIA work?

We have put together our years of research and expertise in the field of textiles and sustainability. Three criteria are evaluated and assessed: traceability, recyclability and eco-rating . These follow the most important guidelines for our product development. The average results in the MIA rating.

The rating system ranges from 1-10. The number 1 stands for the worst and the number 10 for the best possible solution. These values ​​are represented by circles, with the best grade filling the entire circle. The number in the middle of the circle stands for the consolidated overall rating of all main criteria – our MIA rating.

Impact Assessment

Our company

As a young textile company, we have already been able to achieve quite a few things. With our ambition to produce textiles that are as sustainable and high-quality as possible, we can be proud of what we have already achieved. Of course we will always try to develop and improve. But the current snapshot can be seen...

76% traceable

We are already achieving over 75% traceability across all of our products. This means that we can trace the entire value chain back to the raw material for most of our products.

70% recyclable

Over 2/3 of our entire product range is completely recyclable. Whenever possible, our products are designed to be recyclable and biodegradable.

-50% CO2

Across our entire company, we have around 50% lower CO2 emissions than comparable textile companies (measured in terms of tCO2 per million CHF sales, analyzed by Paygreen).
