    The VEJA Project

    Since 2005, VEJA has been creating sneakers in a different way, mixing social projects, economic justice, and ecological materials.

    VEJA uses Brazilian and Peruvian organic cotton for the canvas and laces, Amazonian rubber for the soles, and various innovative materials conceived in recycled plastic bottles or recycled polyester.

    VEJA sneakers are produced in high-standard factories in Brazil. Part of VEJA’s logistics is managed by Log’ins, a professional and social inclusion company.

    Ethical & fair sourcing
    Fair trade is one of the three fundamental pillars VEJA is build on. Cotton and rubber are purchased directly from producers in Brazil and Peru. We sign 1-year contracts with them and set a market-decorrelated price.

    Sustainable & responsible production
    Workers are well-compensated and live in normal conditions. The average salary of frontline manufacturing workers on the shop floor is from R$ 1,400 to 1,600, higher than the living wage for the country. Every year, we perform a social audit to make sure our factories respect our values and meet our criteria, and to identify the areas where we could still improve and do better.

    Carbon Accounting and Neutrality

    We measure, monitor, and actively reduce our emissions
    We decided to conduct a study about our CO2 emissions to get even deeper into the reality of VEJA. We tried to make our results accessible for everyone while going deep into a supply chain that we already know intimately. We believe the only way to defeat blind spots is to calculate everything and release everything.
