2025 GOALS

FOR THE PLANET

PATHWAY TO CLIMATE POSITIVE

FOR THE PLANET

PLANET & PEOPLE FRIENDLY MATERIALS

Making the best product is still our number one priority. As long as we'll exist, we will keep making gear that is better for our planet and community.

The materials we use are a significant driver of our impact on the planet. It's up to us to choose materials that reduce waste, limit water consumption, and use safer chemistry during production. We're using preferred materials like organic cotton, recycled polyester, and bluesign® approved materials to reduce resource consumption and carbon emissions.

PRODUCT CIRCULARITY

We’re focusing on circular systems to reduce our resource consumption, keep our products in use for as long as possible, and limit waste.

To keep our carbon footprint small and limit waste, we're embracing circular principles that reduce resource consumption and extend product lifecycles. It's our mission to keep our products in the mountains and out of landfills. The most sustainable products are the ones that last, and we back all of our softgoods with a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

Global product warranty claims repaired.

FAIR LABOR & RESPONSIBLE SOURCING

We believe that everyone has a right to fair compensation—it’s that simple.

A big part of riding together is making sure that we take care of our people and communities - that means compensation for our employees, contractors, and factory workers should be equitable and livable. 


By 2025, we’ll ensure that our major suppliers reach, at minimum, internationally recognized living wage benchmarks. We'll continue to uphold our Responsible Sourcing principles and work with our suppliers to make improvements through our social audit program accredited by the Fair Labor Association.
