Know to react responsibly

CLIMATE FOOTPRINT

The climate emergency, linked to CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, is a topic that AKU addresses with a conscious approach to its production activity. This is why we quantify, through a certified calculation process, the equivalent CO2 emissions in all phases of the life of our footwear: from production to transport, up to disposal at the end of their life. Because we are sure that knowing is the fundamental prerequisite for reacting correctly and responsibly.

The production cycle of mountain footwear is a complex process,
formed by a system of companies that together form a long supply chain , divided into suppliers of raw materials, semi-finished products and services.

The analysis of this process is the necessary prerequisite for knowing the real level of environmental impact of the finished product and for defining an adequate reaction strategy.

It is on the basis of these simple but fundamental considerations that
AKU decided to go first in the footwear sector
outdoor, the emissions calculation certification project
carbon dioxide of their models.

The aim of the initiative was to look better within oneself, to know in depth every aspect of one's production organisation, from design to the end of life of the product and to understand how
this process impacts on the environment, with particular reference to
CO2 emissions, the greenhouse gas that results more than any other
today responsible for global warming and the resulting climate emergency.

The project, guided by the ISO 14067:2018 standards, required the collection of a wide and detailed range of information, intended for the creation of a database that today allows AKU to precisely define the quantity of CO2 emitted for production and distribution of each individual model.

Precious data, certified by the third party BUREAU VERITAS and made public through the CARBONFOOTPRINTITALY platform which for now concerns the Bellamont Plus model, but which in the future will also be available for other models from the AKU collections.

A commitment in terms of transparency towards the end user and an analysis initiative that will allow our company to act on the critical factors of the production process, working towards the constant reduction of environmental impact , with the aim of achieving neutrality climate.
