For us, TAMARIS GREENSTEP is a collection where we are only clearly developing in terms of sustainability on the product side, but during the development process as well. Comprehensive measures have already been taken to reduce our consumption of water, energy and other natural resources, to avoid waste and to fight climate change. Shoes are a very complex subject here due to their high number of individual components. That is why it is even more important that we take our responsibility seriously on the product side. Nevertheless, we can only do this together: together with you, we want to reach our goals, learn daily and improve ourselves – whether in our processes or product design. Sustainability starts small – with every individual and with every step. That is why we celebrate even small successes and are proud of every step along the way.
WE TAKE CARE

For the sake of the environment, we already use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified materials for wrapping paper, shipping boxes, shoe boxes and hang tags for our TAMARIS GREENSTEP models.
We currently produce our TAMARIS GREENSTEP collection both in Portugal and in Asia. Starting in Spring/Summer 2022, our TAMARIS GREENSTEP models will be produced exclusively in Portugal. This is an important step to minimize air freight and to strengthen the climate-neutral transportation of packages across Europe.
Digitalization is constantly forging ahead. This opens new doors for us to be even more sustainable in product development. In particular, the design process has become increasingly digitalized over the past few years, which has allowed us to develop our entire TAMARIS GREENSTEP collection virtually and with 3D animation. This simultaneously reduces the number of samples we need for our shoe models and saves valuable resources.
