Our founders, Liz and Royal Robbins, were some of the earliest environmental advocates. From pioneering the clean "climb climbing" movement in the '60s to creating long-lasting clothing from lower impact materials, they always put the planet first.
Today, we continue their journey of continous improvement, by setting—and achieving goals—for more sustainable production, supporting our environmental partners, and continuing to makes clothes that last.
Our spring/summer '23 styles meet our highest sustainability standard yet. 63% of styles in this line are made from materials that contain 50% or more lower-impact fibers.

UN FASHION INDUSTRY CHARTER FOR CLIMATE ACTION
In 2019, our parent company signed the Fashion Charter. As a signatory, we are committed to an industry-wide target of 30% greenhouse gas emissions reductions by 2030, collaboration on developing a methodology for the apparel industry to decarbonize, and sharing tools or resources to enable all within the industry to reach the necessary climate reductions.
We are committed to reducing our emissions wherever possible and work with partners that are aware of their environmental footprint. As part of our commitment we climate compensate our unavoidable CO2 emissions from product shipments, business travel, staff commuting, energy consumption, and events through investments in Gold Standard Projects. By investing in Gold Standard Projects we can be sure that the compensation projects we fund have environmental integrity and support sustainable development.
