OUR ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT
In line with its environmental commitment, Salvatore Ferragamo has partnered with various logistic providers to offset, through carbon neutral certified projects, all CO2 emissions generated by the shipment of its products; specifically, an agreement with UPS for the products ordered through the eCommerce platform in the United States and a partnership with DHL Express for the eCommerce shipments in Europe.
As of 2016, for all the Italian facilities, the Company has obtained the ISO 14064 Certification concerning the reporting of CO2 emissions and the ISO 14001 Certification, which defines an Environmental Management System. Moreover, the Osmannoro site has obtained the ISO 50001 Certification, to ensure a more efficient and sustainable use of energy.
Since 2017, the Company has voluntarily participated in the CDP's climate change questionnaire, to favour transparency and accounting of CO2 emissions. In 2021, Salvatore Ferragamo has been recognized with an A score for its actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy, securing a place on the prestigious CDP ‘A List’. Based on the 2021 CDP questionnaire, Salvatore Ferragamo entered the 2021 CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard, ranking that celebrates the leading companies assessed for their ability to engage suppliers on the issue of climate change, obtaining an "A" score on the Supplier Engagement Rating.
As part of its sustainability strategy, the Company is also committed to searching for sustainable transport solutions through the optimization of employees’ transfers and to identifying initiatives capable of reducing environmental impact, such as car sharing and carpooling. Moreover, in 2021 the Company signed a partnership with Alphabet, a BMW Group company specialized in the provision of corporate mobility services, for the replacement of the Company’s fleet of more than 150 corporate vehicles in Italy with Plug-In Hybrid or Full Electric cars, with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions.
