A MORE SUSTAINABLE STORE

As part of Zara’s commitment to have more sustainable stores, this store has been designed, built and managed to reduce the use of energy and water when compared to a conventional retail store. This is in line with Zara’s commitment to constantly review our standards so that we are working towards better environmental practices. 

To ensure that the store meets these criterias, it is connected to our centralized system which allows us to program lighting, heating and air conditioning, among other things, to suit what a specific store needs at any given moment. With this approach, we control and optimize our energy consumption and limit our CO2 emissions.

Additionally, the wood used throughout the store, as well as paper products including bags and labels, have all received PEFC or FSC seals, guaranteeing that the management process for the forest-sourced raw materials was conducted in a more sustainable way.

Zara works continuously to reduce the environmental impact of its team’s daily decision-making with the use of a holistic vision roadmap that has objectives for every phase of the value chain. It also develops reuse and recycling programs that promote the circular economy and reduce waste and the first-time consumption of raw materials. Zara and Inditex are committed to achieving climate neutrality by 2040.
