The Environment

It is our quest to minimise impact on the people and on the 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. SKANWEAR chooses to tread carefully, and our goal is to minimize our impact on people and the 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.

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. 


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.
    • Planning our production carefully in conjunction with our producers and forwarding agents to minimize our carbon footprint.
