ECCO switches to anhydrous production

By the end of 2021, Danish footwear manufacturer ECCO intends to completely eliminate the use of water in the tanning process. The special patented DriTan2.0 ™ technology, developed by ECCO's own Applied Research Laboratory, allows the processing of hides without the use of water.

In addition to saving water, DriTan2.0 ™ technology significantly reduces the need for chemicals to achieve the required leather quality level, virtually eliminating waste water. This saves about 20 liters of water per leather treatment, which corresponds to an annual savings of 25 million liters of water. This volume is enough to provide the population of a small town (9 thousand people) with drinking water, the brand's press release says.

Continuing towards sustainability (or responsible manufacturing) ECCO intends to recycle up to 90% of generated industrial waste

In addition, already in 2026, the company expects to recycle up to 90% of generated industrial waste. It is noted that last year ECCO Global managed to recycle and recover 70,9% of waste at its own shoe factories and 64,5% at tanneries.

Whereas the footwear industry as a whole generates about 700 metric tons of greenhouse gases annually (about 1-3% of the total carbon emissions in the world) and 92 billion metric tons of waste.

ECCO founded in 1963 in Denmark. The brand produces footwear for men, women and children. ECCO products are presented in 2250 stores and more than 14 points of sale in 000 countries around the world.
