For 45 years, The North Face has been empowering people to explore the outdoors. This focus on the natural world has opened our eyes to the many challenges facing our planet. It’s not just our responsibility to ensure our products and business practices have the smallest possible impact on the environment — we strive to be a leader in meeting those challenges.
We are very proud of the accomplishments we’ve made and recognize there are continued areas for improvement. For example, in 2010 we made great progress on working with our suppliers around the bluesign® standard and we are on track to meet our goals for greenhouse gas reduction. As a global and growing brand, however, we can and will do more to expand our sustainability efforts across the world.
