The Spanish footwear company Pikolinos, which operates under the eponymous brand and the Martinelli label, plans to be carbon neutral in July. It claims to have already reduced its carbon footprint by 65 percent since 2016 at its headquarters and Pikolog logistics hub.
The company’s sustainability policy focuses on emissions, energy consumption, packaging and product development. Pikolinos pointed out that all the power it consumes is from renewable sources, that it joined the Leather Working Group in 2020, that its shoe boxes are made from recycled cardboard and paper and that it has fully eliminated plastic from its packaging.
Its long-term target is to ensure that 85 percent of non-leather components are produced from recycled or sustainable materials.
In 2020, Pikolinos posted sales of €128 million, in line with the previous year.
