Sustainability report as a guide for analysis and action

Since 2020, we have decided to produce and publish an annual Sustainability Report, a voluntary non-financial reporting tool that helps us to take a snapshot of our company’s progress and to set improvement targets in line with our chosen direction for the future.


We want to revolutionise the headwear industry. To create products that last, limit our impact on the environment and make a positive difference to the lives of the people involved in our business.


Through our products, we help brands tell their story, with the aim of raising awareness in the marketplace and supply chain to make more responsible choices.

Goals and Guiding Principles


For us, the challenge of sustainability is also a challenge of research and innovation, which means experimenting with new materials and new processes for both the Atlantis collection and the Atlantis Custom Made service.

The weight of sustainable products on Atlantis’ purchases has steadily increased from 5% in 2020, to 13% in 2021 to 23% in 2022 (in terms of quantity), thus increasing its offer.

From 2023, we have extended our range of eco-friendly materials beyond fabrics to include components, technologies, stickers and tags.

Between 2021 and 2022, we conducted a specific LCA analysis on the most representative products of the Atlantis brand. The results confirmed the need to continue investing in the conversion of materials and fabrics. The study was also the basis for the development of a carbon footprint calculation tool specifically for our caps.

Goals and Guiding Principles


We have started to rethink the way we produce and use energy within the company, with the aim of reducing our direct emissions.


Purchase of a new generation condensing boiler and replacement of around 440 neon lights with around 40 LED ceiling panels.

JULY 2023

Installation of a 124 kW photovoltaic system on the roof of our warehouse with the aim of producing 50% of our total energy consumption ourselves.

We have set out a rigorous emissions reduction plan with a concrete, science-based vision.

The Science-Based Target initiative has endorsed our near-term science-based targets, which will allow us to develop an emissions reduction plan based on climate science.

We include social responsibility criteria in our supplier evaluation process, giving preference to suppliers who have not only integrated ethical and sustainable practices into their organisation, but who have also implemented them throughout their supply chain.

Sensitising suppliers to issues of labour ethics and reduction of environmental impact (also by encouraging the choice of sectoral certifications).

We are developing a rating system for direct suppliers (Tier 1), which we will gradually extend to our indirect suppliers.

We are committed to achieving Tier 3 by 2025 to ensure that workers are protected and valued.
