Fashion footwear company The ALDO Group has received for the third consecutive year its climate neutral certification from South Pole – a provider of global sustainability services.
The ALDO Group purchases carbon credits from high-impact emission reduction initiatives. It supports clean energy projects in India and China, as well as a nature-based forest conservation project in the Amazon basin, according to a statement.
In 2018, the Group became certified climate neutral for its corporate stores, distribution centers, and offices.
In 2019, the company had its eCommerce shipments and product transportation certified climate neutral.
In 2020, it further reduced its net emissions and compensated residue emissions with carbon credits through nature-based forest conservation and clean energy projects.
“We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished since our first climate neutral certification in 2018 – it’s taken us many years of analysis, research and action to get to where we are today – but we know there’s still much work to be done,” said David Bensadoun, CEO of the ALDO Group.
Bensadoun said the company also looks to rally industry players to join the movement.
”We’re thrilled to see the ALDO Group choosing to become a carbon neutral company. The ALDO Group is truly a leader in the industry and their proactive approach to support projects that reduce emissions will undoubtedly inspire others to follow suit, turning climate ambition into climate action,” said Renat Heuberger, CEO and Co-Founder of South Pole.
