Sustainability

Sustainability has been a constant in our trajectory, while others are starting now, we continue to work every day to generate a positive impact on our environment.

Our passion for rugs is only understood if we take care of the environment while being aware of our social responsibility.

We care about people

We develop strategies to improve the lives of artisans, with special attention in India, Pakistan and Nepal, countries in which we produce. Since 2002, we have granted part of our volume of purchases to the association Care & Fair to ensure that their children have access to education.

We care about the planet

We ensure that the entire chain, from the design conception to the choice of materials, processes and techniques, is as respectful as possible towards the environment. In 2013, we joined the Indian biochemical company, Charmaine F. Sharma, to support one of its main breakthroughs in the fight against environmental degradation. These advances, Eco-sheen & Jutex, are biodegradable and chemical-free products that we incorporate into the process. In addition, we use 100% recycled PET in Outdoor collections.

We are committed to sustainable development

We are committed to artisan work and the preservation of the local economy through nurturing its development. We design long-lasting rugs that do not proliferate single-use consumption while also fostering their recycling.

We are aware of the challenges this objective presents and we work every day to reach new solutions that minimize our long and short-term impact.

After developing a measurement, reduction and compensation program, nanimarquina chooses a zero-emissions future. We're Climate Neutral Certified.

Our latest milestone in terms of sustainability is the achievement of Climate Neutral certification. After developing a measurement, reduction and compensation program, nanimarquina chooses a zero-emissions future.

In addition to establishing an annual reduction plan that allows us to continue auditing and reducing CO2 emissions year after year, nanimarquina participates in an offset program consisting of two independent projects certified by Gold Standard.

These initiatives located in India, the country which has helped us establish our brand through craftmanship, ensure that the net emissions emitted by the company are equal to zero.

20 MW biomass power in Chhattisgarh

Located in northern India, this sustainable energy project generates electricity using rice husks produced by local communities. By replacing the fossil energy source with a renewable one, both waste and CO2 emissions are reduced simultaneously.

In addition to its positive environmental impact, this initiative provides the community with other benefits such as giving them access to a First Aid Center and various educational programs.

Clean cooking with biogas

Over a million people a year die from inhaling harmful cooking fumes in India. Furthermore, open fire cooking contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. This project supplies biogas facilities to 12,000 farming families, improving the health of the whole family in addition to reducing the time they spend on household chores and finding firewood.
