At Gabarain we fight everyday to reduce the carbon footprint of our footwear and follow the sustainable line.
According to Iberdrola, the carbon footprint represents the total volume of greenhouse gases (GHG) produced by human economic and daily activities. Knowing the figure – expressed in tons of CO2 emitted – is important to take measures and implement the necessary initiatives to reduce it as much as possible, starting with each one of us in our daily lives.
Footwear is an important sector of our country’s industry and one in which many greenhouse gas emissions are produced, generating a negative impact on the environment and contributing to global warming.
According to several studies, most of the greenhouse gas emissions fall on the manufacture of components and among them highlights the sole and the cut, whether leather or textile, secondly the manufacture of packaging and the end of life of the shoe followed by the actual manufacture of the shoes and finally the transport.
At Gabarain we understand ecology as an extensive process, especially in the multifaceted footwear manufacturing industry. However, we are fully committed to a more sustainable future. To reduce our environmental impact and realize our green goals, we are engaged in a process of research and development of eco-friendly alternatives. We have already taken comprehensive steps with some of our best suppliers to ensure our long-term commitment to becoming an environmentally conscious company.
This is just the beginning of a major transition to sustainability. From raw materials, to our facilities, distribution centers and offices.
We are looking closely at all aspects of our supply chain to identify areas for improvement.
We are committed to setting and meeting concrete targets. At Gabarain we are determined to reduce our impact on the environment and ultimately achieve our goal of producing shoes that leave the smallest possible carbon footprint.
Some of the lines of action that Gabarain will try to carry out are the reduction of the consumption of raw materials, energy or products, the installation of more efficient technologies and the minimization of waste.
