Sustainability at Patagonia

[PATAGONIA MISSION] - Page header

Set up over 40 years ago by a band of climbers and surfers, Patagonia are now a global brand, with sustainability at the very forefront of their ethos. With a firm commitment to environmentalism, it is Patagonia’s mission to use all the resources they have - their business, investments, voice and imaginations - to protect and restore our natural world.

Patagonia


Built to Last

Patagonia is dedicated to making quality goods; namely functional, repairable and durable products that will last for generations or can be recycled to remain in use. Through its Worn Wear scheme, Patagonia facilitates the reuse, repair and recycle of its products - good quality clothing can be exchanged, broken items repaired and products beyond repair recycled.


Manufacture, Materials & Methods

The quality of Patagonia products also rests in the materials and methods used in their production. Patagonia works to source materials and use processes that cause the least harm to the Earth. This involves evaluating the raw materials used, rigorously policing waste created, and investing in innovative technologies for the future.
As a vital part of the Bluesign and B-Corporation communities Patagonia is at the heart of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. Patagonia products are manufactured using Organic Cotton, Hemp, Traceable Down and Recycled Materials where possible, and their product line is becoming increasingly Fairtrade certified.

Investing in the Future

Patagonia also use their platform to promote solutions to the environmental crisis, actively campaigning for and investing in organisations and projects that work to make positive change. Patagonia pledges at least 1% of their sales to go to environmental grassroots groups, which over the years has accumulated to more than a whopping $100 million. This initiative evolved into a global movement and the ‘1% for the planet’ alliance is now made up of over 1,200 member businesses. Patagonia has also set up Tin Shed Ventures; its corporate venture capital fund, which invests in environmental start-ups.

All in all, Patagonia are one of the most environmentally and socially responsible businesses in the industry. When buying Patagonia products, you can be comfortable knowing that you are investing not only in a high quality, long-lasting item, but also in the sustainable future of the planet.
