Sustainable Initiatives for Salons
Each Zero Environmental Impact Stylist equals 2050 m2 of trees per year and compensates 1589 kg of CO2
The pioneering programs aim to help spread ecological awareness within the world of hair salons.
ZERO IMPACT SALONS
With this objective Davines promotes the campaign for Zero Environmental Impact Salons as an integral part of our commitment towards sustainability.
The campaign offers assistance to stylists who wish to offset the carbon emissions deriving from their daily work activities, transforming their salon into a zero environmental impact establishment one step at a time.
Following an initial experimental phase carried out in Italy, the project was exported abroad; today it is active in Norway, Spain and Portugal where Davines assisted hairdressers take environmentally aware actions through initiatives that are sustainable and concrete in addition to sending a message to their clients.
SALONS RUNNING ON RENEWABLE ENERGY
In the International year for Sustainable Energy proclaimed by the UN, Davines launches a new project: building the first network of Salons that run on Renewable Energy.
Renewable Energy is an alternative to traditional fossil fuels because it is generated by the sun, water, wind and earth; it is therefore clean, as it does not release carbon emissions into the atmosphere and does not jeopardise the natural resources for future generations.
Davines has been supplying its offices and plants with renewable energy since 2006, and this year it extends an invitation to all hair salons to take this opportunity to protect the environment by adhering to LifeGate Energy.
LifeGate Energy is the first electrical energy that, in addition to being produced with renewable sources, is also Zero Impact®.
Being a part of LifeGate Energy is extremely simple: there is no activation charges, no changes made to your meter, no bureaucratic procedure.
Lifegate offers a multitude of advantages for the salon, because in addition to safeguarding the environment, this choice actually turns the cost of the electricity bill into a value that you can spread to others.
It is through these concrete and sustainable projects that we try and "instil" those around us through our own actions.
