Thanks to solar self-consumption, it is able to provide itself with clean energy and thus offset the carbon footprint derived from its manufacture.
Calzados Fal continues to take steps in the fight against climate change and in its responsibility towards the environment, and therefore the implementation of solar panels in 2020 with an installation of 100kW of power tripled this year, installing 539 more panels with a power of 272 kW, thus adding up to 372 kW.
Calzados Fal decided to implement solar self-consumption to provide energy and thus reduce the Carbon Footprint derived from its manufacture. It should be noted that solar energy is a CLEAN energy, which allows a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. To date, the Riojan company has avoided the emission of 183 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.
FAL, anticipating any national, international or global regulatory framework, decided to implement solar self-consumption panels as a very effective way to achieve the objectives of reducing emissions without renouncing the use and exploitation of energy. According to the Riojan company’s calculations, in the winter months 25% of the energy consumed will be generated, and in the summer months this rises to 56% of that consumed, which means a saving of 36% in annual electricity consumption.
The increasing emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) is responsible for the global warming effect and the increase in global temperature has become one of the main challenges for the international community. For this reason, the quantification and reduction of the carbon footprint is nowadays the main focus of Calzados Fal, convinced that environmental responsibility has positive effects on its profits and reputation.
Calzados Fal has been one of the pioneering companies in establishing an appropriate policy of respect for the environment, with an attitude of improvement towards sustainability and an evolution towards a low-carbon economy.
