Calzados Fal, S.A, – Chiruca® is a company committed to the environment, promoting environmental efforts and working actively in the field of sustainability.
Its continuous work to reduce its environmental impact has borne fruit, and it has achieved the full (calculate, reduce and compensate) Carbon Footprint seal.
Calzados Fal, S.A. has been registered for years in the list of companies that calculate their carbon footprint. The carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases emitted as a direct or indirect effect of an individual, organisation, event or product, in this case in the manufacture of boots.
CARBON FOOTPRINT SEALS
With this seal, issued by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment of the Spanish Government, Calzados Fal demonstrates its participation in the register and reflects the degree of effort undertaken by the company in the fight against climate change. The aim of this seal is to measure the environmental impact of the entire process carried out by the company in the production of CHIRUCA® footwear, to evaluate the ecological impact of its products and its environmental actions.
In addition to being among the companies that calculate their carbon footprint, Chiruca® has worked so hard to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions with carbon dioxide absorption projects that it has finally achieved its goal: to offset its carbon footprint, thus achieving the full cycle label.
For several years we have been compensating 100% of our CO2 emissions through the planting of the Chiruca Forest in the municipality of Bergasa, a forest of 35 hectares in which more than 20,000 trees have been planted. The main species is the holm oak, interspersed with other species such as servals, maples, gall oaks, pines, junipers, wild cherry trees, etc., which will give changes of colour in autumn and spring, avoiding the appearance of a monoculture and attracting fauna.
After the initial more extensive plantations in recent years have been reduced as the company’s progressive reductions in CO2 emissions have also been decreasing:
