During a meeting in Milan with a group of selected journalists, Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo, explained in details the sustainability project of Filo.
During the meeting, Paolo Monfermoso stated: «By implementing the sustainability project for yarns, we want to highlight some points. First of all, the broad awareness of Filo’s exhibitors as far as sustainability is concerned, and the fact that often it is already carried outby the firms. Then, the fact that for us sustainability is a process and implicates the entire supply chain, since this is the only way to get sustainable products».
In detail, the exhibiting companies which join the project – on a voluntary basis and with self-certification – will reply to a specially designed questionnaire with information on the company itself, raw materials and the various stages of production. Starting from these bases, for the 52nd edition of Filo, there will be a Sustainability Area, where the products from the companies participating in the project FiloFlow will be shown. At the end of his intervention, Monfermoso underlined that «It is through production processes which are sustainable from an environmental and social point of view that our companies will be able to continue to create high quality products and excel internationally – Mr Monfermoso underlined – This is what the market will ask for the future.»
