One of Talis Elements principal missions is to ensure a perfect balance between business and economy and animal welfare, the values that are deeply integrated into our business model.
According to UN Global Compact Guide to Corporate Sustainability, "…corporate sustainability is a company's delivery of long-term value in financial, environmental, social and ethical terms…
…Social sustainability is about identifying and managing business impacts, both positive and negative, on people. The quality of a company’s relationships and engagement with its stakeholders is critical. Directly or indirectly, companies affect what happens to employees, workers in the value chain, customers and local communities, and it is important to manage impacts proactively."
All leathers used in our products are sustainable. “Sustainable leather” is an actual real animal skin, sourced from animals that have died a natural deathor as a by-product of local farming and agriculture communities. As we work with a real leather, our goal is to collaborate only with those suppliers that provide highest animal welfare standards and educate them on standards of A Greener World’s Animal Welfare Approved (AGW) program.
Talis Elements founder, Natalie Solak, personally and regularly visits Bali, the site of her brand’s production, to ensure manufacturing standards are followed and consistent. Her long-lasting relationships with her suppliers are built on trust and a shared ethos with the Balinese rendering all life as sacred, and treatment of animals and generation of materials reflects that.
Talis Elements practices “predator conscious” sourcing. We believe in preservation through necessary (government-ordered) indigenous predator population control designed to ensure the safety of local villages and vitality of their culture.Working with the local suppliers and manufacturers also helps us contribute to the health of economy where farming is often the only source of income for community. Support and collaboration with local artisans and farmers help us ensure appropriate care and treatment for the livestock while ensuring stability of their livelihood.
Talis Elements embraced sustainability as part of our business strategy since the start. Following 17 Global Goals for sustainable development (SDGs) issued by United Nations in 2015, we apply the principles of international collaboration, corporate accountability, ecologically conscious treatment to all our activities as a business. Part of innovation for us is to demonstrate that ethics and business can drive growth and profitability, while protecting our planet and keeping it clean for generations to come.
