THE SHOE THAT LETS THE WORLD BREATHE
Find the path to a more sustainable future,
which has led us, with the Ministry of the Environment,
to analyse the carbon footprint of our footwear.
ALL OUR ACTIVITIES
HAVE AN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT.
BUT THAT IS NOT ALL. EVERYTHING WE USE EVERY DAY
LEAVES A MARK ON OUR PLANET.

BUT WHAT TRACE DOES A SHOE LEAVE?
In collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment, we analysed the entire life cycle of a pair of sneakers from the children's range, which best represents our standard production of footwear.
We found that the footprint of this model does not exceed 32kg of CO2 eqv.
- Raw materials
- Raw materials,
- Using energy for production
and waste disposal
(including fusion of soles)
- Transport from the production unit
to the store and the collection of unsold products
- Electricity use
and batch disposal
- End of life cycle
- Disposal of shoes
A QUANTITY EQUIVALENT TO:
1.7 musical teddy bears
32 kg CO2 eq.
44 hours of video games
32 kg CO2 eq.
19 bars of milk chocolate
32 kg CO2 eq.
HOW CAN WE NEUTRALISE IT?
The analysis in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment
was the first step towards identifying the environmental impact
of the life cycle of our footwear.
This enabled us to find new solutions
to apply to the whole Geox collection.
It is an initial step along the path towards a carbon neutral company,
an ambassador of a more sustainable future.
WE DECIDED TO OFFSET THIS IMPACT
BY LEAVING A TANGIBLE MARK FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR PLANET.
HOW CAN THIS BE DONE?
By taking part, in collaboration with Treedom, in the Shoots of Hope for Haiti project:
an initiative aimed at restoring local flora to a country with one of the
highest levels of environmental degradation in the world.
700 trees have been planted on the island of Haiti,
covering an area of one and a half hectares.
The impact of the project is not limited to the environment:
by involving local communities we also want to provide social value, creating job opportunities and encouraging virtuous actions in order to protect the natural resources and micro-entrepreneurship initiatives aimed at enhancing forests and what they produce. Not only the island of Haiti is involved, since the advantages of this project can have a worldwide impact.
JUNIOR MALTIN COLLECTION
A collection that helps a forest to grow,
a unique collection for our children's growth.
Geox Junior Maltin sneakers, for children aged 6 and over, are ideal for wearing all day long. Geox Junior Maltin is the shoe that respects the environment and guarantees the performance of the exclusive Geox patent: comfort and temperature control.

Efficient Energy At The Footwear Warehouse In Signoressa
The installation of a photovoltaic system at the footwear warehouse in Signoressa has already produced over 2 million kWh of clean energy, enough for the annual consumption of almost 1,000 families, as well as nearly 3 million certified kWh from renewable sources in 2014.Close
From 6 to 22 March, Geox promoted 'Green Weeks', striving to neutralise estimated emissions of CO2 resulting from the life cycle of footwear sold in these two weeks. With our commitment and that of our consumers, we planted more than 6,000 trees as part of the 'Shoots of Hope' project in Haiti.Close
