JOTT is committed
Let's resist the shortcomings of our industry - obsolescence and ephemerality - by celebrating the essential, the versatile and the sustainable. At JOTT, we've set ourselves a new rule: to embody freedom and creativity while striving to preserve the planet and respect people. And that's no small thing in our industry.
Reducing our carbon footprint
In 2022, we carried out our first carbon assessment, the starting point of our strategy to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
In 2023, we will be carrying out an environmental audit of our suppliers in line with the ICS (Initiative for Compliance and Sustainability) standard, one of the most demanding. This audit is carried out by an independent third-party organization. Its aim is to guarantee compliance with environmental and health standards, particularly in terms of energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water management, waste management and pollution prevention. If the audit reveals non-conformities, JOTT provides follow-up and support to help suppliers achieve the expected level of compliance.
Increase the proportion of responsible materials
The choice of raw materials plays a key role in reducing the impact of our products. That's why we have an ambitious plan to increase the proportion of eco-responsible materials in our collections, starting with the summer 2023 collections. For example, 100% of our T-shirts, polo shirts and sweatshirts are now made from organically grown cotton, which is more environmentally friendly than conventional cotton. We also use recycled materials on some of our down jackets, and we don't intend to stop there!
We manufacture our products where we have the best expertise for each type of product, and close to sources of supply to reduce the transportation of materials, while ensuring a consistent pricing policy for our customers.
Starting with the Autumn-Winter 2023 collection, we will be displaying traceability and environmental impact information on every product in our collections, in compliance with the French AGEC law (Anti Gaspillage pour une économie circulaire) and European PEF (Product Environmental Footprint) regulations.
Ensuring human and animal well-being
I n 2022, we have socially audited all our direct suppliers, according to the ICS (Initiative for Compliance and Sustainability) standard, one of the most demanding. This audit is carried out by an independent third-party organization. The aim is to guarantee respect for good working conditions and employee safety throughout the production chain of your garments. If the audit reveals non-conformities, JOTT provides follow-up and support to suppliers to ensure they meet the required standards.
All of our down comforters are made from responsible down from animal welfare farms.
Contributing to local development
The South is our territory, our source of creativity. As a company based in Marseille, it is our responsibility to contribute positively to the development of the Mediterranean region. To do so, we work in partnership with local players in the social and solidarity economy and in the preservation of biodiversity.
Supporting all JOTTERS
We are convinced that mobilization is only meaningful if it is shared. That's why we'll soon be offering you new services to help you consume more responsibly: maintenance advice, second-hand and repair services to help you extend the life of your JOTT products.
