Falabella achieves carbon neutral certification for the third time
What: Since 2019, the company has compensated for nearly 19 000 tons of CO2.
Why is it important: Falabella is consolidating its position as the only retail company with this certification granted by Icontec in the country.
As reported by the company, this achievement has been achieved through the financing of forestry projects through carbon bonds, a mechanism by which the company has compensated for about 19,000 tons of CO2, since 2019, equivalent to the total carbon emissions of its logistics and commercial operations over the last 3 years.
In addition to advancing the measurement and compensation of its carbon footprint annually, Falabella Colombia has a robust management program that positively impacts the country's environment and ecosystems, structured to meet the standards of the international standard ISO 14001.
In other categories, the company developed its own circular fashion program. It has also certified 11 of its stores under the LEED standard of sustainable construction, which guarantees low water and energy consumption. In parallel, it has also sought to reduce other impacts of its operation through tools such as FSC certification of all its bags and boxes. In logistics, Falabella also dabbed in zero-emission transport through the use of electric fleets for deliveries.
