Tacchificio Villa Cortese, big steps towards sustainability

Tacchificio Villa Cortese revolutionizes the footwear sector and paves the way for a conscious fashion with Fheelbio BCATM, the ecological material that combines performance and sustainability, redefining the standards of the footwear industry

Tacchificio Villa Cortese, founded in 1961 by Luigi Gazzardi and now in its third generation of forward-thinking entrepreneurs, is always in the limelight thanks to its innovative material Fheelbio BCA TM, which quickly stood out as a reference product at an international level.
This new discovery in the field of footwear materials has caught the attention of fashionistas and industry experts for its combination of performance and sustainability.
Fheelbio BCA TM represents a breakthrough in the production of heels for footwear. Made with organicand biodegradable elements, this groundbreaking ISCC+ certified material, bio-circular attributed, offers a number of benefits for both consumers and the environment. The share of sustainable material derived from the organic material waste (Bio-Circular-Attributed) is allocated through the mass and traced throughout the supply chain thanks to respect for the chain of custody.
“We give great importance to this approach,” says Silvia Paganini. “We believe it is unique compared to what is common in the industry, because it is based on the concept of mass balance and extends throughout the supply chain, ensuring certification of each stage, from the producer to the final product.”
The products made in Fheelbio BCA TM have identical performance, quality and properties compared to the standard ones but are supplied with a Sustainability Declaration which certifies the allocation of sustainable content. As a matter of fact, the company has always placed sustainability at the heart of its operations, constantly striving to reduce the environmental impact of production. In addition to creating ecological materials, the company has invested in advanced technologies that make it possible to optimize the use of resources, reducing waste and the emission of harmful substances. This commitment to sustainability extends throughout the supply chain, working collaboratively with suppliers and partners to ensure sustainability standards are met every step of the way.
“We have recently enlarged our photovoltaic system, showing our unceasing commitment to energy sustainability. We are also actively working to improve the efficiency of our processes, both in terms of energy and environment. A crucial aspect of this effort is the constant monitoring of all consumptions, including those of the machinery on board the machine. This allows us to promptly identify and correct any inefficiencies, helping to reduce the overall environmental impact and optimizing our resources”.
Innovation and sustainability are the two pillars on which the success of Tacchificio Villa Cortese is based. The company has proven that it is possible to combine exceptional performance with a small ecological footprint, thanks to its research and development activities on green materials and its focus on reducing waste and emissions.
