The ALDO Group extends its climate neutral commitment to include all eCommerce and product transportation carbon emissions from production to end customer.
Last year, the ALDO Group became the first fashion footwear and accessories company in the world to be certified climate neutral for its corporate stores, offices and distribution centres. The natural next step to continue its climate journey and extend its commitment to the environment, is having all its eCommerce shipments and product transportation certified climate neutral.
In 2013, the ALDO Group began its sustainability journey by calculating its carbon footprint and setting itself a baseline for improvement. Since then, the company has improved the energy efficiency of its offices and stores, and invested in projects to limit emissions in its own operations. From 2013 to 2018, the company is proud to have achieved a 46% reduction of its greenhouse gases in only five years since embarking on this journey to help our planet.
"Online shopping is a part of our customer's experience, so the next step is extending the climate neutral certification to include our eCommerce shipments and product transportation," said David Bensadoun, CEO of the ALDO Group.
"Not only is this part of the company's social responsibility philosophy and purpose, which is a journey to create a world of love, confidence and belonging, it's also our goal to make it easy for our customers to stay fashionable and to 'choose good'. By communicating our progress about reaching ambitious new objectives, we hope to inspire other major fashion companies to follow suit."
Global sustainability solutions provider South Pole certified the ALDO Group's climate neutrality and confirmed that the company is successfully offsetting its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions as well as a portion of its Scope 3 indirect emissions in accordance to its new, more rigorous, certification.
"We are proud to work with the ALDO Group who continues to push its fight against climate change," said Renat Heuberger, CEO and Co-Founder of South Pole, "This is an ongoing commitment and together, we are convinced that our efforts to reduce business environmental impacts will contribute to a sustainable society."
