The study that we are going to present is part of the continuity of the eco-design approach of La Pièce Paris Paris, an approach since 2017.
Commitment to ethical and sustainable fashion has led La Pièce to explore new ways to minimize our ecological footprint, while preserving the elegance that characterizes our creations. This in-depth study of the environmental impact of products, carried out in collaboration with the environmental consulting firm Deceo, is fully in line with this quest for ecological excellence. Discover the results of this exploration below, which confirm the brand's commitment to responsible fashion that respects our planet.
Environmental Impact Analysis
Within the approach centered on ecodesign, La Pièce Paris Paris has undertaken an in-depth study of the environmental impact of our products, based on the Life Cycle Analysis assessment tool.
This approach made it possible to measure the virtue of the brand's articles created with eco-designed fabrics compared to their mass-market equivalents.
The collaboration with the environmental consulting firm Deceo began with raising awareness of eco-design, highlighting the importance of the circular economy and the Life Cycle Analysis methodology.
This made it possible to determine an environmental score and compare different scenarios taking into account various parameters, such as mass, choice of materials and location of manufacturing. The research team kept in mind the essence of the concept of multi-stages in the clothing life cycle. La Pièce, as well as the multiple impacts that go beyond the simple measurement in equivalent kilograms of CO2.
This rigorous evaluation focused on three of our articles, requiring close collaboration with suppliers of La Pièce .
The firm researched data relating to the environmental impact of their innovative materials, exploring several environmental aspects. This data was essential to enrich the Base Empreinte, a calculation reference provided by Ademe.
Moreover, La Pièce and Deceo carried out a detailed analysis of the components of the items, from the exterior fabrics to the linings, including the zippers. The objective was to ensure exhaustive collection of all relevant information before making decisions on what elements to consider or neglect.
Thanks to the manufacturing of the items in France, combined with a carbon-free electricity mix, the process was approached with a certain peace of mind. The results of this evaluation were sources of satisfaction and validation for our choices.
For example, the CAMDEN women's reversible fleece jacket emits 75% less CO2 than that of a leader in the sporting goods industry. Likewise, the DIAGONAL fanny pack shows a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions and a 32% reduction in the use of fossil resources.
Thus, this study supports that the range of clothing of La Pièce stands out for its low environmental impact, further proof of the brand's commitment to ethical and sustainable fashion.
