Recover™ operates according to the highest environmental and social standards and is third-party certified.
As leaders in sustainability, we are committed to improving the environmental performance of our products and solutions. We are third-party certified and aligned with the industry standards.
In 2022, at Recover™, we have implemented our own reproducible and reliable Chemical Management System (CMS) to ensure the chemical compliance of our products and to provide a robust safety guarantee to our customers and protect the environment.
We also created our Employee Code of Conduct and trained all employees to our standard of behaviors. We implemented a Whistleblowing corporate channel, available anonymously to all employees.
In October 2022, the Recover™ headquarters in Madrid, Spain, were opened. These offices are located in the GMP Building, certified under the strictest environmental and social standards: LEED Platinum, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001.
Moreover, Recover™ implemented a robust and comprehensive Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS). 100% of workers at Recover™ have been trained in Health & Safety during 2022.
Recover™ products and supply chains are traceable.
In 2022, Recover™ tested and validated a physical and digital tracer system for our fiber. Using a physical tracer will allow Recover’s customers to verify the presence of Recover™ recycled cotton to support making credible and substantiated sustainability claims about recycled content. In 2023, Recover™ will continue the development of this traceability solution in order to become market ready.
How does it work?
- Using an optical signature to give an individual fingerprint to Recover™ products.
- Assigning dosing data, weight, and other data to bale identities.
- Presence of the traceable recycled content can be verified with a scanner or lab test.
- Blockchain technology based digital tracing system applied alongside physical tracer.
Recover™ supply chains are sustainable and socially just.
In addition to traceability, we aim to build strong and resilient supplier relationships to ensure compliance with Recover’s Code of Conduct for Business Partners to promote an approach of continuous improvement to achieve best practice environmental and social performance.
We seek high sustainability and social standards for our products and processes, as well as for our whole business and value chain and we expect that each individual party involved in our supply chain respects our values and abides by the rules of our Code of Conduct.
