The ISO 14001 certification - Environmental Management Systems (EMS) allows companies to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable management, ensuring greater control of environmental issues while promoting and sustaining the improvement of environmental performance.
The conviction that the future depends on the implementation of sustainable processes led JJ Heitor to choose the implementation of an environmental management system in accordance with the ISO 14001 standard and its certification. This option will meet the concerns of some of its most representative customers related to social responsibility, in particular with the environment.
The performance management system is based on compliance with all legal and customer environmental requirements, seeking from this basis to identify its environmental aspects and define methods for its control and monitoring.
The ISO 14001 standard was used as a tool to rethink the way the company manages its environmental aspects, considering the product's life cycle. The implemented system allows a consistent and systematic performance, based on the monitoring of performance indicators, which enhances continuous improvement.
The certification was obtained after a successful audit carried out by SGS at the end of March 2021.

Don't reinvent the wheel; refresh it with a pick-and-mix from past eras to inform modern designs that are built to last
In times of uncertainty, the past can have a powerful allure.
With the rise of digital culture, legacy styles have become firmly incorporated into the fashion landscape, offering comfort in a stream of novelty, but by 2021, the heritage itself will be ready for an update.
Classic, formal and casual styles will be re-invented with a streetwear twist or punk sensibility, looking for historical materials and details that are reworked alongside modern fabrics and silhouettes. It is about respecting the past without replicating it.
