In 2021, Salvatore Ferragamo presented a responsible re-edition of the F-80 Skeleton timepiece. The strap is made of materials with a low environmental impact; a thin layer of FSC certified cork covers the inside, while the outside is of post-consumer recycled PET fibre fabric, with hole covers made of vegetable tanned leather. Responsible material choices have also been made in packaging; the outer box is in FSC certified cardboard, while the wood and metal protective shell available in two shades that match those of the watch is lined internally with hemp, and externally in post-consumer recycled PET fibre fabric. The watch support cushion is made of a bioplastic material obtained 100% from sugar cane.
Salvatore Ferragamo has decided to quantify the carbon footprint and therefore the environmental impact of the F-80 Skeleton with Sustainable Strap, according to the requirements of the ISO 14067 standard - Product Carbon Footprint. This calculation enables the Company to offset the generated environmental impact by supporting the construction of the Burgos Wind Project, the largest wind farm in the Philippines. In addition to reducing the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere by generating large scale electricity from a clean and renewable source, the project will create jobs and concrete economic opportunities for local communities.
