Sustainable Cashmere Union (SCU) is built around several interrelated pillars to ensure sustainability throughout the supply chain. The values of the SCU are aligned around a common collective project: responsibility and commitment to sustainability.
What do we mean by the concept of sustainable cashmere?
Sustainability focuses on meeting present needs without compromising the needs of future generations. The concept of sustainability is based on three pillars: economic, environmental, and social. Also informally referred to as: profit, planet and human.
What are our core values?
Respect, interdependence and tripartite. That of man, animal, and the environment in which they evolve.
Fairness, so that the breeders have a financial contribution in line with their work, in adequacy with their sustainable practices. A profitable, ethical, fair, and sustainable remuneration that improves their livelihood.
Bravery, on the part of the farmers. In learning and changing their perception of livestock practices, new codification to be considered. Compliance with requirements that work for the common good.
Adaptability, to preserve the quality of virgin soils and to allow a restructuring of the living on damaged soils. Avoiding overgrazing, by reorganizing the way of grazing through pasture management.
Consistency, by ensuring, step by step, that the entire production chain in which SCU intervenes respects sustainable practices.
