Sustainability is woven into the fabric of our business through conscious design, responsible supply chain and meaningful partnerships.
FORMIA now offers carbon neutral amenity kits and aims to be a net-zero carbon company by 2030.
OUR THREE SPHERES
Designing products that inspire and create a connection with both people and planet
Responsible Supply Chain
Employing processes and delivering products to have positive social and environmental impacts
Forming trusted and purposeful partnerships that share sustainability commitments and promote systemic change
Our five ambitious targets are inspired by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a collection of global goals developed to help achieve a better and more sustainable future.
For more information on our sustainability targets, please get in touch with us.
Materiality Analysis with GlobeScan
Our path to sustainability began in 2020. Together with GlobeScan, the global insights and advisory consultancy, we interviewed key stakeholders across our entire ecosphere.
Our strategy was then formulated based on the findings and further vetted to fine-tune and define our ambitious targets.
Rebel is FORMIA’s sustainability partner
With our strategy and targets defined, we then initiated a partnership with Rebel to help us drive and execute our vision.
Rebel is a global consultancy, “advising and investing for the future.” They help to make sustainability more tangible through data measurement, quantification and analysis. Concretely, Rebel is helping FORMIA, as well as our partners, to drive a reduction in our carbon footprint.
Proudly supporting the aviation industry
FORMIA is one of the early members of the Aviation Sustainability Forum (ASF), whose mission is to collaborate for the development of sustainable inflight service solutions.
Our designs integrate circular principles using the R-ladder of circularity and focus on a high take-home appeal and reducing waste as much as possible.
We curate materials that:
- Have less impact in the raw material extraction and production phase;
- Can be recycled or biodegraded;
- Have recycled content and use fewer virgin materials.
Reducing our impact
We completed our first Greenhouse Gas Assessment (GHG) in October 2021, measuring emissions of our end-to-end operations and setting the baseline for ongoing improvements.
Our Life Cycle Impact Analyses measure the impact of an amenity kit from raw material extraction to end of life disposal.
In December 2020, we pledged to convert 100% of our socks and eye masks from virgin polyester to recycled PET fabric with Global Recycled Standard certification for all our airline customers.
This is just the start of our journey as we continue to reduce environmental impact collaboratively with our customers.
We aim to make a positive impact on the lives of our employees and to provide a safe, happy and comfortable work environment.
FORMIA is an equal opportunities employer, providing employees with a work environment free of discrimination and harassment.
FORMIA supports communities that we operate from, both locally and internationally.
We partner with Changing Young Lives Foundation and Habitat For Humanity
FORMIA volunteers time and donates a range of products on an ongoing basis that supports programme development and delivery work for those underprivileged communities.
We engage in further community activities with environmental NGOs near and dear to our heart, such as Beyond Plastic and One Tree Planted.
Our hope is to make a tangible difference and build a long-lasting relationship with these organisations.
