Chiruca - Huella Carbono / Bosque Chiruca

Chiruca, a Company committed to the Environment

 

Calzados Fal, S.A, - Chiruca® is a Company committed to the Environment, fostering environmental efforts and actively working towards sustainability.

Its ongoing effort to reduce its environmental impact has come to fruition, achieving the complete Carbon Footprint seal (Calculation, Reduction and Compensation).

Calzados Fal, S.A has been a part of the list of companies that measure their carbon footprint. The carbon footprint is the sum of all emissions of greenhouse gases caused, directly or indirectly, by an individual, organization, event or product; in this case, by boot manufacturing.

With this seal, granted by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment of the Spanish government, Calzados Fal proves its participation in the registry and shows the level of effort made by the company to fight against climate change. Thus, the goal is to measure the environmental impact of the entire process carried out by the company to manufacture CHIRUCA® shoes, as well as assess the ecological impact of its products and environmental actions.

Aside from being one the companies measuring their carbon footprint, Chiruca® has put great efforts towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions through carbon dioxide absorption projects, and has finally reached its objective of compensating carbon footprint, obtaining the full cycle seal.

For several years now, we have been offsetting 100% of our CO2 emissions by planting trees in the Chiruca Forest in Bergasa, a 35-hectare area of woodland where we have so far planted more than 20,000 trees. When choosing species, we have thought particularly about Biodiversity, seeking to imitate native woodlands, where holm oak largely grows, alongside other species such as mountain ash, maple, Portuguese oak, pine, juniper, crab apple, wild cherry, etc., which will provide changes in colour in autumn and spring, avoiding the monotonous aspect of single crop cultivation and attracting wildlife.

After our initial more extensive planting programme, in recent years the rate of planting has decreased since the progressive CO2 emissions of the company have also gradually decreased.
