Respect

As an outdoors company we rely on the environment being clean and beautiful, and somewhere people want to be!
So we think it’s important that we respect the environment and look to do all we can to help protect and restore the nature around us.

Path Restoration – We funded various green projects including mend the mountain – Balmoral Path, Jungle hides etc, and more locally we encourage all of our local employees to bike/walk to work or car share where possible, and have introduced facilities to help with this.

Reduce

It’s easier to improve your eco-credentials if you reduce the impact you have in the first place, rather than trying to balance this out once it has happened.

We have invested heavily in a £1M refurbishment program to ensure our premises are more energy efficient and less wasteful. From energy efficient machinery and technology to insulation and green energy. This is one of our biggest investments to date!

We are also working on guidance and support for working together to reduce our impacts – which is everything from using robust high-quality fabrics which can last many years (so you can buy once and wear lots!), to ensuring you can wash our items at 30 degrees.

Rebuild

Sometimes you can’t avoid something being damaged, but when this happens we recommend fixing where possible – a good jacket really can last a lifetime with the right care!

Robust Design – We undertake a variety of lab and real-world testing on our designs, to ensure they are robust – hopefully reducing the potential need for a repair!

Another aspect is the Legacy Project, where not only can we repair your garments, but we are also going to be launching tutorials on how you can repair, care and do DIY on your own kit.

Recycle

Recycle! It is one of the biggest challenges, but we are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is achievable.

We have recycled garments for over 5 years and have a zero landfill policy -but we can do better with your help.

The Legacy Project is the next step in this journey.

React

The world of outdoor-wear is constantly changing, and we want to make sure we can be reactive to this.

As more innovative fabrics and components come out, our team explore whether these could be an appropriate and more sustainable alternative for our products.

Whether we are moving away from harmful chemicals, or moving towards ethical alternatives in materials, we’re always looking to improve.

We continue to increase our R & D – which isn’t just the latest fabric technology, but also innovative techniques for application and use guidance.
