OUR COMMITMENT TO TRACEABILITY
TRACEABILITY
As world citizens and nature lovers, we are committed to preserving the environment and the dignity of work. That's why it's vital to trace back the supply chain, right to the origin of each product. Traceability demands transparency, and transparency brings accountability. And that's the way it should be.
Higg Index is a powerful industry standard for assessing a business's environmental and social sustainability performance - at every stage in the supply chain. It is based on the idea of transparency as a means to fast-Forward environmental and social improvements in the textile industry world-wide. Soon factories and companies can consent to getting an independent public scoring against the same criteria world-wide, so that you can evaluate how they perform.
TRANSPARENCY
Any business can talk a good transparency game. But not so many truly walk the talk. We prioritise openness in our initiatives and undertakings, because transparency is the cornerstone of trust. Find out more about all our initiatives in our most recent Sustainability report.
FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION
Fair Wear Foundation is an Independent non-Profit organization that works with us companies to improve working conditions in textile and assembly factories. It has very high requirements and continually challenges us to try harder. Since 2016 we carry the "Leader" status for our hard work!
SAFE WORKING FACILITIES
CHEMICAL SAFETY
We engineer our products to make sure they provide maximum safety and have minimum negative Impact. In cooperation with scientific partners, we have developed our own Salewa Chemical Policy. With this powerful tool we aim for industry best-practice, keeping chemical limits which go way beyond legal limits.
