OUR RESPONSIBILITY

As a company deeply rooted in the astonishing mountain region of the Alps and producing goods for the everyday outdoor experience, we do not only base our brand but our entire lifestyle on nature as main source of life, belonging and passion. In order to minimize our company’s impact on the environment and to establish a more ecological business model, we are taking action to implement sustainable processes in the entire supply-, manufacturing- and distribution chain of Reusch gloves.

Together with our partner Fokus Zukunft we have calculated our company’s emissions and
we are working on ways to neutralize them.

OUR SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAM

The path towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly business development requires effort and dedication. However, it is absolutely necessary for guaranteeing a better future for the next generations. Therefore, we developed the Taking Care Strategy, our own approach to improve the firm’s environmental compatibility, which is based on the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nation’s Agenda 2030. Such goals include respect for human rights, fair working conditions, protection of the environment, and prohibition of corruption.

Here we share our achievements and future goals, with the intention of growing this list year after year.
