Here at Wemanage Group (Wemanage, K-448, Arebour, 1984PR) we have a clear plan on how to turn into a completely responsible company: in the next few years we want to carry out a necessary evolutionary path, aware of the contradictions of the system in which we operate and the continuous evolution of sustainability goals.
At Wemanage Group we work questioning how our time addresses the crucial issue of otherness and difference. We strive to become a multidisciplinary group which, through a holistic and post-colonial approach, works internationally to achieve ESG sustainable development goals. Corporate sustainability goals related to Environment, Society, Governance and Culture are part of our corporate culture and are pursued through annual reports, shared
objectives and collaborations with specialized bodies. Only through this systemic vision one can speak of shared value. We want to bring this intent to the work we do with our clients and
the shareholders we collaborate with, to improve processes, increase the value of operations, seeking to return with training opportunities and support the time spent by individuals in their daily work.
Wemanage Group Manifesto encompasses the reflections and goals we set out to pursue through the speculative and practical ways we identified as priorities and decided to address.
Wemanage Group Manifesto is shared by all the four companies which fall under the umbrella of the group (Wemanage, K-448, Arebour, 1984PR) and was generated after careful reflection, also supported by a cycle of training on sustainability curated by the Fashion in Process Research Laboratory of the Politecnico di Milano to which all Wemanage members had access. Future collaborations regarding sustainability will still see Fashion in Process as our project partner.
What comes next?
We have identified the following goals for the next three years, which will be defined and tracked in the sustainability report in the 2024.
As a company employing 70% women, we believe in the individual's gender choice.
Through our consulting work, we strive to positively influence issues related to gender equality, diversity and inclusion. Ours is also a relationship-based business: with our customers as well as with our team of employees and collaborators. That's why we strive to put customers and people first. One of the objectives is to provide the educational tools to be aware of one's professional actions and the impact of them, investing in constant updating and professionalization of people. Building a multicultural organization that preserves the identity of
the individual, marked by a solid corporate culture oriented towards professional excellence with reference to the sector in which the group operates. Building a working environment that enables each member of the organization to perform at his or her best and that promotes
personal relationships among employees, suppliers, customers and other stakeholders involved.
Reducing the environmental impact generated both by our business activities and by the structure and management of the entire group is a moral objective of which we are aware.
Our operations and productions are predominantly digital, paperless and with a strong focus on reducing environmental impact; we are also aware of the physical environmental risks and impacts that digital in any case entails and we are committed to monitoring them and finding solutions to these issues. Choosing sustainability means embracing a modus-operandi that focuses on researching and implementing new practices to reduce environmental impact.
It is our moral obligation to understand the impact that our activities, as a consulting agency, have on our planet, and consequently to commit ourselves to minimize the impact they have on the environment, through a conscious consumption of resources and an appropriate use of transport.
ProsperityPart of the value created by our activities must be reinvested to create environmental prosperity, nature conservation and resource preservation. In our fashion design and production activities, we strive to promote the principles of circularity, transparency and traceability at the level of raw material selection, design, production and disposal. In addition, we have embarked on a project to specialize in auditing and reporting to assess and comply with the latest sustainability issues at the supply chain level. These principles will be vectors in
our consulting business and we will engage with our clients to work in concert on these goals.
