Equipe CFP - GreenWeek16

Diadora has confirmed its commitment to to invest in local know-how and bring the Italian excellence throughout the world with the inauguration of a certified production.

The prestigious DNV GL institute has provided the environmental impact certification allowing Diadora starting the first project of "responsible production" and, as far as possible, environmentally friendly.

The certification process (EPD) and environmental impact calculation, which is manufactured on a special variant of Equipe SW, the most recognizable model of the Heritage brand, is a true world record in the production footwear, because it requires a number of certifications achievable only through maximum control of the entire production chain, obtained in this case thanks to the reopening of a manual "in-house" production line, inaugurated at the beginning of 2015. The President and Diadora CEO, Enrico Moretti Polegato, commented: "This project is particularly important for me both personally and professionally. I think that attention to environment is a entrepreneurial responsibility that we have towards future generations. This study, and certification that results, have allowed Diadora to access a range of information that has enriched us, and brought to make new choices, more informed and educated, with suppliers and partners, with the aim of a reduced environmental impact".

Nicola Private DNV said: "Acting perspectively in the conservation of resources is a behavior of sustainability that anyone should take. We are sure that Diadora commitment will help to increase the sensitivity of an important sector such as Sportswear. The carbon footprint measurement and the life cycle of the shoes of the line EQUIPE will provide to the company concrete tools for planning of control and reduction of their greenhouse gas emissions. A further confirmation from Treviso society in the field of environmental protection, a plus recognized not only in Italy but also internationally ".

The shoe Equipe CFP is sold exclusively online at Diadora e-commerce .
