Our Eco Approach

The art of being responsible

Our eco approach

SIDAS works hard to minimise their environmental impact by utilising:
- More eco-friendly packaging (FSC label)
- Responsible procurement (Imprim'Vert-certified printers, FSC paper, recycled paper, etc.)
- An eco-responsible approach to the entire product life cycle. SIDAS' twin objectives of composition and product life cycle optimisation enable us to make constant reductions in environmental impact.

Our objective: TO ACT

Our materials:

we choose recycled or recyclable materials that also improve the biomechanical properties of our products.
- we select our partners carefully, adopting a policy of responsible procurement (Imprim’Vert® and oxo-biodegradable plastics).
- wherever possible we choose natural materials (bamboo and water-based ink) and recycled materials (waste straw, ortholite®, EVA and PORON®).
- our packaging is eco-friendly, using paper and cardboard from sustainably managed forests (FSC).

Our production process:

Our emissions test carried out in June 2010 showed a fall in CO2 emissions.
- minimum loss from waste: waste sorting is optimised to the greatest possible extent.
- recycling: all our insoles are made with a maximum of recyclable or recycled materials without compromising our high levels of quality and performance.

Transport:

we favour usage of energy-efficient modes of transport, particularly sea transportation.
