For the production of Goosecraft we require our suppliers to monitor the discharged water and the use of water, energy and chemicals. This check can be done by means of a Manufacturing Restricted Substances List. This list indicates the acceptable limits of restricted substances in chemical formulations used in the manufacturing process of raw materials and products. Goosecraft encourages its suppliers to work with ZDHC’s MRSL to ensure that certain harmful substances and chemicals are not used and all other chemicals are only used within allowable limits. In addition, our suppliers are expected to maintain their chemical inventory by means of a chemicals inventory sheet and to work with an MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet). With regard to chemicals, we require our suppliers to take proper precautions when storing, using and disposing of the chemicals to protect workers and the environment.
As Goosecraft’s main material is leather, we demand our suppliers to make sure that all of our products are not exceeding the limits when it comes to chrome (Cr) and the usage of Chrome 6 (Cr6) is prohibited.
Under the umbrella of Amfori BSCI, is the Business Environmental Performance Initiative (BEPI). Goosecraft has joined Amfori BEPI in an effort to manage and improve environmental progress and create supply chain visibility.
