The sustainable way forward 

The quest to minimize impact on people and planet

It is our common responsibility to care for the world we live in. The same way our steps leave footprints in the snow, we leave an imprint on our world. Haglöfs choses to tread carefully, and our goal is to minimize our impact on people and planet. Gradually we are heading in the right direction by setting - and achieving! – strict environmental goals that we continuously refine. We are by no means perfect, and there is lots of work to be done.

Not a project

We are gradually increasing and strengthening our more environmentally friendly offer by placing demands on ourselves to try to do better all the time and appreciate the pressure from increasing consumer awareness; if an ever-increasing number of customers are demanding more environmentally friendly options, we know that we are on the right tracks and can focus even more! Sustainability is fundamental to us, and we look at every part of our business as an opportunity for improvement. 

Choosing carefully

Making better choices will further sustainable development. Some choices we’ve made include 

  • choosing materials that have not only a long lifespan but that also have a lower environmental impact and that has no harmful chemical content.
  • designing durable products with a wide range of use and featuring functional yet intuitive solutions.
  • developing and using fluorocarbon-free waterproofing that meet our high demands on functionality.
  • close collaboration with the Fair Wear Foundation and collaboration with other brands to produce our products in a responsible manner or 
  • planning our production carefully in conjunction with our producers and forwarding agents to minimize our carbon footprint.

Take Care

Take Care is our guiding principle as well as our branding of the more sustainable product choices. It is the core of everything we do, an integral part of our entire process. From increasing the proportion of recycled material to Keep an eye out for the ‘Take Care’ symbol to find our products with even greater focus on sustainability. The ambition is to constantly improve our complete product range, not just a few selected styles! And the work will never be ‘done’.
