LIFEGATE AND WOMSH TOGETHER FOR A GREENER WORLD
Since 2014, thanks to its collaboration with LifeGate - a benchmark for sustainable development in Italy – Womsh has been taking part in Zero Impact®, a project aimed at compensating for CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere as a result of any activity, product or service.
It compensates for residual CO2 by creating and protecting, in the long term, new-growth forests in specific geographical areas in Italy and the world, in countries including Costa Rica, Madagascar, Bolivia and Panama.
In 5 years, at Womsh we have helped to create and protect more than 11.000 square metres of forests, per year on average,in Madagascar and in Italy.
Moreover, Womsh takes part in “Foreste in Piedi”, a LifeGate, Icei and Avive project
aimed at protecting the Amazon forests in Brazil.
LifeGate protects 560 hectares of Amazon forests, a green area
that Brazil has granted for use by 27 families in the San Pedro community,
with the aim of preventing and combatting deforestation,
arson, illegal hunting and other environmental crimes.
OF FOREST PRESERVED
In 5 years, we have created and preserved a large surface of equatorial forest, equale to the surface of 46 tennis courts.
PAIRS OF SHOES RECYCLED
In 2018 we have recycled 1.500 pairs of Womsh sneakers.
OF CO2 OFFSET
Since 2014, we have offset 74 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission, equal to the consumption of more than 10 milions sheets of paper.
OF RENEWABLE ENERGY
Almost all the energy used by our company comes from renewable sources.
