A new design
for a better world.
Since 1966, our decisions have been driven by a purpose: to protect the planet we love.
Our first-ever circular collection is designed to be easily recycled at the end
of its journey, keeping gear out of landfills.
The new circular fleece is the comfort you rely on, and supports our vision
to make the world a more sustainable place to explore.
Circularity is a future beyond waste
We’re trying to make our gear better from the start. That’s why our circular collection is made using more sustainable fabrics and designed to be easily recycled.
By choosing products that fit your style, your body and your needs, you can make a smarter choice for you and the environment.
Our gear is designed for the long-haul. But if something does need fixing in theyears to come, don’t worry; we’ve got you with product warranties and our repair service.
When it is time to say goodbye to your gear, bring it back to us and we’ll make sure it doesn’t end up in landfill.
Your gear can be recycled, refurbished or donated and given a new shot at exploration. Together we can redefine the future of exploration.
Better isn’t a destination. It’s a journey.
And because exploration is in our nature, it’s a journey we won’t stop travelling.
From better fabrics and materials to better partnerships with our suppliers, we promise we’ll never stop exploring how to leave our basecamp in better condition than we found it, for the next generation of explorers.

Move to 100% responsibly-sourced fabrics
We’re working towards making all of our products from recycled, regenerative or responsibly-sourced renewable fabrics.
This means sourcing fabrics that are derived from materials that will replenish over the course of a lifetime. We’re on track to hit our goal with all our clothing in 2025 and all footwear and equipment by 2030.
Accelerate sustainable packaging
Our goal is to eliminate single-use plastic packaging by 2025. In the meantime, we’re reducing the amount of product packaging and designing it to be recyclable.
We only use recycled content and/or third-party certified content (such as Forest Stewardship Council certified) for all our paper materials, like product hangtags and cardboard shipping boxes.
Minimise our suppliers’ and retailers’ environmental footprints
We’re committed to working with our suppliers to help them reduce their environmental footprint, with a goal of a 50% reduction by 2030.
We’re also partnering with retailers who share our mission and values.
We are developing circular systems to recycle previously owned gear and reuse the raw materials, keeping them out of waste streams.
This year, we’re launching our first products intentionally designed for circularity. We already have initiatives helping to keep used gear out of landfills, such as our Limited Warranty repairs programme and our Clothes the Loop programme. And through the continued roll-out of our Renewed Collection, we’re giving used gear a second chance at exploration.
