We're pushing hard into a beautiful, more sustainable future, today
We believe that by embracing nature, we can make a world of difference to the wellbeing of people and the planet. We are building our capability and evolving a science-based environmentally sustainable approach, which will lead to the creation of safe and natural fibre-based interior products.
We are systematically working through our supply chain to look for opportunities to be more sustainable and efficient in our processes. Our goal is to invest in the sustainability of our products and reduce our environmental impact through research, science and innovation.
We are aiming to incorporate the UN Sustainable Development Goals into our business, as we recognise that businesses are a key part of achieving these global goals by 2030. We see these goals as necessary targets that we can use to challenge and commit ourselves to.
Change feels good, join us on our journey.
BREMWORTH & NEW ZEALAND FARM ASSURANCE PROGRAMME (NZFAP)
Bremworth has proudly signed up to the New Zealand Farm Assurance Programme (NZFAP), in support for and adoption of a national wool standard.
NZFAP provides assurance to consumers about the integrity, traceability, biosecurity, environmental sustainability, and animal health and welfare of New Zealand’s primary sector products.
We join 20 other wool industry members to transition towards sourcing wool from 6,800 accredited sheep farms across New Zealand that meet the standards set by the NZFAP.
By signing up to NZFAP, as we are now New Zealand’s only 100% wool carpet manufacturer, we can additionally provide customers with a product where the wool has met traceability, authentic origin and animal welfare standards.
We have commenced sourcing NZFAP accredited wool and are transitioning towards sourcing 100% of our wool from accredited sources.
BREMWORTH HAS STOPPED THE MANUFACTURE OF SYNTHETIC CARPET BECAUSE IT IS ESSENTIALLY PLASTIC
The average kiwi home that is carpeted in synthetics is similar to having 22,000 plastic bags on the floor by weight*. Today, the long-term dangers posed by plastics are becoming clear. It’s a global problem and there’s growing awareness that plastic comes in many forms. In our homes this includes textiles, clothing, furniture, curtains and carpet. Change is needed.
*Based on 110m2 of 40oz synthetic carpet.
