Goal: Wiping out fossil fuels in my jacket

Here is our plan to wipe out our dependence on fossil fuels, including oil:

We would like to reduce our use of synthetic materials (directly or indirectly petroleum based) in our technical apparel (ski/snowboard jackets and pants) to increase the proportion of bio-sourced (also known as plant-based) fabrics.

Turning towards bio-sourced fabrics represents a serious commitment to the environment. We firmly believe that the fight against climate change requires wiping out the use of fossil fuels at every level: for electricity, fuel, plastics, and clothes.

35%

of the technical fabrics for our 2020/2021 collection will be made with bio-sourced materials.

* We use residual cane stalk fibers from sugar production. We do not grow our own sugar cane specifically for the purpose of making clothes.

Coming soon!

Impact
vital

This is a vital step in our companywide goal to wipe out the use of fossil fuels.

Difficulty
high

Solutions do exist, but they are still in the early stages of development and very expensive. However, we have made a lot of progress and winter 2020/2021 will mark a huge step forward.
