AKU PLUS_THE ZERO IMPACT PROJECT
When you live your life respecting nature and the environment you will always find others that share your values.
Dani Sustainable Leather was the first to develop Zero Impact leather using a cutting-edge process that replaces chrome and heavy metals during tanning, reduces the level of CO2 emitted by 5% and cuts the remainder to zero thanks to certified reforestation operations.
An exclusive first for AKU in the outdoor footwear sector by choosing Zero Impact leather by Dani Sustainable Leather for the linings of its models in the AKU PLUS family. Moving in this direction for some time now, AKU takes another step forward along the road of sustainability which started with the commitment on raw material traceability of it’s European suppliers.
AKU is committed to research into lower environmental impact design and production solutions. Even the models in the Winter 2016 collection were created fully respecting the environment and are produced in Montebelluna (Italy) and Cluj Napoca (Romania). Designing, developing and manufacturing in Europe permits direct control of the production sources and a shorter supply chain and where over 90% of the raw materials and parts used are sourced locally with 100% traceability. This means a lower environmental impact starting with the transportation of raw materials and finished products.
