Impact

Vibram has concluded the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the Tront sole, the first step towards obtaining Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certification. We are in the process of doing an LCA for another product. Stay tuned.

LCA OF THE TRONT SOLE,
THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS EPD

The assessment generated a "snapshot" of the Tront model in terms of the main production drivers (materials, waste, energy consumption, transport, direct emissions, etc.), thus determin- ing the environmental impact of the sole. An example? The pro- duction cycle of a pair of soles produces 4.3 kg of CO2, slightly less than the amount emitted by a person cycling to work for a month* or the amount required to serve grilled fish**.
