AKU Italia registers first EPD for footwear

Bellamont Plus EPD

AKU Italia has become the first company to register the first EPD® of footwear in the International EPD® System. The EPD declares the environmental impacts of one pair of Bellamont Plus over their life cycle including:

  • Preparation of the raw and semi-finished materials (leather, fabrics, insoles, laces, etc.)
  • Production of the shoe (cutting, sewing, assembly, etc.)
  • Distribution, use and end-of-life

 The EPD® has undergone third party verification by RINA Services, and checked against the Product Category Rules (PCR) for leather footwear. The EPD was produced by Aequilibria di Pernigotti Daniele.
