Sustainability commitments
Unisa loves the planet
Unisa ya tiene 50 años
Unisa is already 50 years old.

Everything has happened so fast, much faster than any of us could imagine. Now it is the time to walk firmly towards a more responsible attitude to our society and the environment.

Integrating the ecological conscience, both internally and externally in our company, has become a priority for us. We want to create the future by looking forward but also by looking around us.

Our main goal is to reduce the carbon footprint caused by the industry, contributing to improve the environment and the wellness society. Honestly, humbly and transparently, we want to share our commitment and what we do with the rest of the world.

That’s our way to move forward, step by step, slowly but surely.

All our online orders are delivered in boxes made 100% of recycled paper. This way we reduce the number of trees cut down and our CO2 emissions, and we save water too.

Besides, all paper used to make our shopping bags is recycled. Both the paper and the wood used to make them are PEFC certified, which promotes the sustainable management of forests all over the world, this way protecting biodiversity, ecosystems and fighting climate change.

All our cartons are reused to the end of their life cycle, and later recycled. The same boxes are used in our stores, our headquarters and in further deliveries to our suppliers.

Our fight to remove all traces of plastic from our supply chain includes the replacement of the plastic sticks used to keep the form of our shoes by pressed cardboard ones. We have also replaced the paper fillings at the toe by recycled paper ones. Moreover, we have completely eliminated plastic bags from inside our shoe boxes.

Unisa defends Nature, environmental protection and fair trade. We select maximum quality leather from the top tanneries around the world to produce our shoes, always meeting the highest requirements in terms of health, safety and environment sustainability. We make sure they have been tanned under the strictest processes of environmental safety. Our animal print leather is never made from protected species, but from cow or goatskins that are embossed and treated to get the exotic effect and texture.

Unisa is committed with the development of sustainable products and has created a collection of shoes and bags made in PET fabric, obtained from recycled plastic bottles.

Reusing must be a global responsibility to respect our planet. For this reason, and to promote the recycling of used materials, Unisa has developed the new brands Ecolino and Ecowool, based on textile materials made 100% out of used plastic bottles. Resistant, long-lasting, light and very colorful, but most of all ecological.

Moreover, season after season we are increasing the number of styles made in vegetable-tanned leather, using no chemical substance that can be dangerous neither to our customers nor for the environment.

We reuse the offce paper in our Unisa headquarters. This way we reduce air pollution and minimize the water needed to produce new materials.

The waste bins from every workstation have been removed to be replaced by by-department recycling containers; we carry out a selective collection of waste, stopping the dumping of tons of waste that this way can be reused. Therefore, we lower water consumption, we save energy and diminish air pollution.

We provide our staff with company vans to commute to work everyday to contribute to transport sharing. We reduce the emission of pollutant gases produced by internal combustion motors, caused by ineffcient driving, and the residues generated during repairing and maintenance processes.

We have installed solar panels for self-supply in our headquarters. We contribute actively to protect the environment, as solar energy is “healthy”, sustainable and renewable, it’s non-polluting and helps fight climate change.

Unlike other Spanish companies, we have implemented uninterrupted work shifts for all our staff works members to make the best out of daylight, and help contribute to diminish the environment impact and ecological footprint.

Tomorrow

We are fully aware that there is still a lot to do ahead of us, and we have big plans for the seasons to come. We want to continue building up our commitment with sustainability step by step. And for that we intend to:

• Replace the plastic tape by vegetable tape in all production processes.

• Make further use of digital systems to avoid unnecessary printing and paper waste.

• Expand our already existing automatic lights system in common areas and low busy areas.

• Establish circular economy, recycling and reusing our own used cardboard at the end of its life cycle.

Taking action for the future
