To move towards a circular life cycle for Bata shoes
Reducing our electricity and energy consumption
We reduce energy usage in our facilities, including factories, stores, and offices through more efficient lighting and investments in equipment.
We are committed to reducing “miles per shoe” by reducing logistics between manufacturer, distributor, and retailer
Reducing our annual water usage and eliminating toxic solvents
Water is an important resource in our production, and reducing our water usage in factories stores and offices is a priority.
Eco-friendly and safe, water-based adhesives are used without solvents in our manufacturing processes
Moving toward a circular economy
We extend our product lifespan by finding ways to introduce components that can biodegrade, be returned, or re-used.
Our designs strive to incorporate more recycled materials, including rubber parts and re-used scraps.
We implement recycling programs that help our consumers to participate in sustainable opportunities to re-purpose and extend the life of their shoes.
Sourcing our materials sustainably
We increase our sourcing of sustainable materials as we expand our development of eco-friendly design and solutions.
Our suppliers are vetted for labor practices, health and safety through third-party audits.
