RED INDUSTRY GREEN U-POWER: THE FIRST CARBON NEUTRAL WORK SHOES
THE FIRST LINE OF ECO-FRIENDLY CARBON NEUTRALWORK CERTIFIED SHOES WITH RECYCLED AND RENEWABLE MATERIALS IS BORN
Wise Safety are distributors of the U-Power Red Industry Green range.
The below is an extract from U-Power’s blog which helps explain why we’re brining in this unique range:
At first glance, one might wonder how the production of a safety shoe can have zero impact on the environment when the entire production chain inevitably involves the production of carbon dioxide: the production process of materials and components, assembly, logistics and distribution and any further step in production.
It is certain that, although CO2 emissions can be reduced to a minimum, residual emissions remain. But these emissions can be offset by specific environmental protection projects that compensate for the carbon dioxide produced.
The project chosen in this first phase is a hydropower plant in Laos to produce renewable energy, which contributes across the goals of sustainable development: Xe Namnoy 2 Hydropower. The plant, located in the southern region of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, will contribute to the country’s energy self-sufficiency by reducing energy generation from thermal power plants that use fossil fuels.
The compensation of CO2 emissions produce by U-Power through the purchase of credits has as a result, a range of products totally certified Carbon Neutral!
The achievement of this critical milestone confirms the leadership position of the Brand U-Power in the field of safety shoes. It represents the first significant step towards further initiatives to preserve the ecosystem we live in every day. Green footwear can be good support for all companies that want to walk the path of sustainability.
