REDUCING EMISSIONS OUR KEY SUSTAINABILITY GOAL


Working with all activities, from design and prototyping, careful sourcing, and production to transport and distribution, we must know all the aspects of our value chain. On one hand the impact of Environment & Chemicals, the other all People involved on every step of the way. Among our 7 areas of top priority, which are of high interest for us and our stakeholders, we have identified Reduction of Emissions as our overall goal. With reference to Agenda 2030 we share with our fellow brands in the industry, a responsibility to know our CO2 footprint and work to reduce it throughout the value chain. By 2030 we are committed to have reduced our Green House Gases by 50%.

The other focus areas are Material, Transparency, Clean water, Process Chemicals, Our own workplaces and Production working conditions. Read more in our Sustainability Report 2020.

The 2020 Pandemic

When the pandemic hit, it was all about keeping the staff safe and stay operational in safe way. At the same time, we experienced how operations almost stopped for many of our loyal retailing stores and how the order situation for our suppliers became more uncertain.

Therefore, we used our close dialogues with our partners and worked to find creative solutions that could ease the situation. For our retail partners we focused on adjusted orders and terms of deliveries. With our suppliers we changed production schedules to better mirror the situation without having to downsize. The set back for our business is undeniable. However, thanks to quick actions throughout the value chain we find ourselves having a carefully optimistic outlook for our brand and for our long-term partners.

The REACH Chemical restrictions

We continuously update our Restricted Substance List (RSL) in accordance to REACH regulations and/or according to national laws on the markets where we are active. All suppliers who work with us must comply to our list of restricted substances.

On our restricted substances list, we chose to go for zero tolerance instead of specifying allowed REACH limits. We also follow up on a material & component level to make sure all parts of the shoe are free from restricted substances before being crafted.

Material: LWG cooperation for the environment

Aiming to further develop a more sustainable leather production with less strain on the environment, we became members of the Leather Working Group (LWG) in 2019.

Our inhouse experience and skills within shoemaking is, and has always been, our compass and best tool in the close cooperation with our suppliers. For further support and continuous development, we are continuously looking for fruitful collaborations within the industry. Focusing on sustainability for leather, the Leather Working Group is today one of the most well-known and well-regarded not-for-profit membership organizations for stakeholders across the leather supply chain. As members we get access to valuable learnings about best practices in the industry and the latest innovations. By being part of this group of stakeholders that strive for structural and systematic improvements in the leather industry, we are hopeful to further improve the environmental efforts together with our suppliers.

As of today (2020), more than 60% of our leather materials are from LWG rated tanneries. We aim for all our leather suppliers to be LWG rated by 2022 at the latest.
