Judging by it’s website, sustainability is not a major interest for the company. The mission statement below seems to be fairly indicative of the priorities of the company:
“Dedicated to producing the highest quality, technically innovative performance mountain apparel in the world”.

Check here for an update on the companies approach to sustainability after their sale in early 2010 (sadly, it seems that nothing has changed).

Sustainability criteria

  • information on resources used – recycled materials, use of renewable materials, etc

Some of their products do use lower impact materials, for instance 100% recycled nylon in their insulated jackets. So if you are interested in one of their products the best thing may be to research them on-line to get a sense of what specific sustainability features they may have.

  • other environmental claims or benefits

The company does support a range of “non-profits and educational institutions whose goals we share”, although some of these are hardly low impact – eg heli skiing

Further info on the organisations and projects they support can be found here.

Their blog, called Mountain Murmur, is available here.
