ALFA FOR LIFE™
ALFA For Life™ is a long term initiative within the organisation designed to create more sustainable products and solutions. We wish to make it simple for our customers to make sustainable choices, by developing products that can last a lifetime, through proper maintenance and the option to repair every part of the shoe.
By launching the worlds first fully repairable GORE-TEX walking shoe,- Impact A/P/S GTX, we are now one step closer to this long term journey, and ALFA will continue to develop new ALFA For life™ products in the years to come.
Eco Lighthouse is Norway's most widely used certificate for organisations wanting to keep track of their environmental efforts and demonstrate their social responsibility.
Being an Eco Lighthouse involves systematic work towards improving environmental issues on a daily basis. Organisations have to fulfill certain requirements and implement measures in a more environmentally friendly operation together with a good working environment.
Eco Lighthouse have separate requirements for different industries and the certificate is awarded after an independent assessement. Annual environmental reports are delivered every three years if the business meet the requirements. The certificate is recognized by the public procurement authorities.
We call it taking environmental responsibilty into practise!
