EXPECTED RESULTS

  • Creation of a carbon footprint calculation tool for footwear able to quantify GHG emissions, expressed in CO2 equivalents.
  • Application of the calculation tool to 36 different footwear styles produced by the 12 participating companies from 4 EU member states (Spain, Italy, Portugal and Poland).
  • Reduction of GHG emissions released into the atmosphere (Carbon Footprint) in the footwear styles produced by the companies participating in the project and thus, contributing to improve the state of the environment.
  • Identification of solutions addressed to reduce GHG emissions that can be applied in the footwear industry.
  • Incorporation of Eco-design in production models as a way to improve products from an environmental perspective from their initial stage.
  • Promotion of the carbon footprint calculation tool specific for the footwear sector within the European area.
  • Awareness raising about the environmental impact, in terms of contribution to global warming, derived from production processes among footwear sector’s companies.
