Of course quality lasts longer
The most important thing we can do to reduce our negative impact on the environment is to constantly focus on developing products with the highest possible quality and longest useful life. This is and has always formed the basis of Arbesko’s business; quality, safety and function are the most important factors for us.
The longer our safety shoes last, the longer they fulfil their purpose. For us, the most sustainable product is one that does not need to be replaced but can be used for a long time.
But sustainability is about more than our impact on the environment. Our company’s vision of "a world where everyone is safe and healthy at work" extends not only to the fact that we deliver safety and quality with our products, it also pervades our entire operation, including factories and subcontractors. It’s about what we can do at all levels, big and small. At Arbesko, we want to be responsible and assume environmental and social responsibility throughout our supply chain.
