INESCOP becomes the first climate-neutral technology centre

INESCOP has offset 100% of its carbon footprint and becomes the first technology centre to obtain the 2020 ‘Calculation, Reduction and Compensation’ label from the Spanish Ministry for the Ecological Transition.

Sustainability in the footwear industry is one of the main objectives in which the technology centre has been working for a long time. INESCOP, in addition to calculating and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions, has become the first technological centre that compensates for its CO2 emissions and obtains the 2020 ‘Calculation, Reduction and Compensation’ label granted by the Spanish Ministry for the Ecological Transition (MITECO).

Since INESCOP calculated its carbon footprint several years ago, it has been involved in reducing its emissions into the atmosphere. To this end, it has proceeded to install solar panels for self-consumption, replacing conventional luminaires with LED lamps. In addition, it has optimised the energy consumption of computer equipment, renewing obsolete equipment with others more energy efficient.

In this sense, and once these actions had been implemented that allowed consumption to be calculated and reduced for five years, so that the Footwear Technology Centre is carbon neutral, the small amount of emissions that cannot be reduced or eliminated has recently been compensated. This process contributes to the rehabilitation of a deforested area of Spain with a high risk of desertification that will be part of a forest. The voluntary MITECO certificate acknowledges INESCOP's efforts and commitment within the framework of its social responsibility policies towards the environment, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In this sense, with the new Climate Change and Energy Transition Law, this year the government will compel companies to calculate their greenhouse gas emissions and prepare plans to reduce their CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. In order to anticipate these changes, INESCOP is offering the MITECO Organisational Carbon Footprint Calculation service to interested companies.

INESCOP is the Footwear Technology Centre, located in Elda (Alicante) whose main objective is to promote innovation in the footwear sector by offering comprehensive and personalised solutions that improve the competitiveness of companies through the coordination of R&D&I projects, quality control and product certification, technical advice, specialised training, etc... with an experience of 50 years.

It has the largest specialised footwear laboratory, capable of carrying out more than 650 checks on materials and finished footwear in addition to an international network of contacts covering more than 44 countries.

Its main lines of research seek to respond to the current challenges of the footwear sector and its entire value chain, and these are: digital transformation, environmental impact reduction and comfort and user health assurance, among others.
