With our products, we protect the feet of thousands of hard-working professionals every day. But we also bear responsibility for the bigger picture. Whether it is the materials we select for our products or the partners we work with, it is the daily choices we make, big and small, that allow us to make a positive impact.


Since 2019 Allshoes' focus has been on making our products and operations more sustainable. Since 2022, we have been reporting to the outside world about our progress. In our first sustainability report we shared everything we have achieved through 2021 in terms of CO2 reduction, circularity, and improving working conditions within the supply chain, among others.
We are proud to now publish an update on 2022. From mapping our supply chain to launching shoes with more than 50% (weight-based) recycled raw materials - you can read everything we have achieved this year in our sustainability update:



For us, sustainability means being mindful of both people and the environment. Our strategy is therefore twofold: on the one hand, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact; on the other, we want to make a positive contribution to people and society.
In doing so, we face important challenges: the transition to a circular economy, reducing CO2 and increasing transparency in our supply chain. We have set an ambitious target for each of these challenges:

  1. A circular product range
    We integrate recycled materials into our product range and design our products to have a long life cycle. We also work on designs that can be easily dismantled and recycled again at the end of their lifespan. This is how we complete the circle.
  2. A climate-neutral organisation.
    Allshoes is working on reducing our footprint. By 2025, this should lead to a 30% reduction in our Scope 1 and 2 emissions (with 2018 as base year). We will fully compensate the remaining emissions with sustainable initiatives.
  3. A transparent supply chain
    A responsible supply chain is a transparent supply chain. By 2025, we will have mapped out all our suppliers; from our own safety shoe manufacturers to the suppliers of our raw materials. We then work together with our partners to make the entire chain more sustainable.

We work with five pillars to achieve these goals. By following and continuously honing these pillars, we are confident that we will achieve our ambitions and sustainability goals by 2025. These pillars are:



Better materials & design


We prioritise eco-friendly and/or recycled materials in our products and design new shoes according to the principles of the circular economy. For example, we have safety shoes that consist of more than 50% recycled materials!

Sustainable operations

         We use raw and auxiliary materials efficiently and try to avoid waste and pollution.

Close the loop

        We ensure that the raw materials used to produce our shoes do not go to waste. We do this by collecting, dismantling and recycling used safety shoes.

Supporting people

        Our activities have a positive impact on the well-being of our stakeholders. Not only on our own employees, but also further down the supply chain.

Driving change

        We strive for continuous progress. Through cooperation, daring and perseverance, we create connections and encourage sustainable innovation.

Circular Footwear Alliance

Allshoes is a co-founder of the Circular Footwear Alliance (CFA). Our ambition is clear: no more waste by preserving raw materials. United in our commitment to the greater good, we have joined forces with EMMA Safety Footwear and FBBasic to help build a sustainable future by establishing a circular system for work and safety shoes. Together, we ensure sufficient scale to make a circular system really work in practice.

Let’s make a positive footprint

By collecting, dismantling and recycling used work and safety shoes, the CFA ensures that as many raw materials as possible are recovered. The used work shoes we collect are carefully dismantled and the materials are sorted and crushed. Some of these recycled materials can be reused in the production of other products. This prevents unnecessary depletion of resources, reduces water and energy use, lowers emission of greenhouse gases and helps rid the world of waste.
