The driving force behind instituto-e

The Italian Minister for the Environment, Land and Sea of Italy (IMELS) Corrado Clini will be in Brazil to discuss WATER TRACES with staff at Instituto-e.

Instituto-E and IMELS have signed an agreement to renew their partnership.

The project will be launched with a series of visits to Osklen suppliers who provide the raw materials for classics like the organic cotton T-shirt, jeans, the Arpoador tennis shoes and a straw bag.

Working with the suppliers, a technical team composed of professionals from IMELS, Instituto-e and SENAI-CETIQT will calculate the Water Footprint of each of these products.
