Our generation has always taken our clean nature as a given. We at Halti have set our sights far into the future and we are doing all we can so that later generations can enjoy it like we have. All of Halti’s operations are based on respecting the environment and other people. After all, our products are designed for outdoor life and sports. With Think Ahead, our sustainable development programme, we take responsibility for our social, environmental and financial footprints. We have much work ahead of us, but we are continuously trying to do better–in every phase of the product lifecycle.
Finnish nature teaches and inspires us to create outdoor clothing and gear that withstand time and wear. We design clothing products and gear for all seasons and the most demanding of conditions, with more than 45 years of experience. Every feature has been considered carefully, from the material selected to the last technical detail, so that you can enjoy your product for as long as possible.
Our products are designed at Halti’s head office in Sipoo, Finland using 3D software. This helps us to significantly reduce the amount of textile waste, emissions from logistics and the wasteful use of natural material.
We are always looking for a high level of quality, first-rate technical properties and high durability. We design our products for outdoor life. We put a lot of effort into selecting the right materials and technologies. It is vital to us that our clothes are safe for you, for the people who make them and for the environment. With the help of strict international certificates, we can reduce any adverse impact on people and nature. We aim to continuously increase the use of recycled materials in our products.
We have long-standing relationships, some as long as 40 years, with our factories where our products are made. We want to openly tell you where our products are made and who makes them. Factory workers are an important part of our production chain and we want to take good care of them. The globally respected amfori BSCI organisation helps us to ensure that working conditions are socially and ethically acceptable.
Our clothing and gear are designed to withstand time and hard wear. We believe that we can extend the life cycle of clothes, already during the design phase and have an impact on what will happen to clothing and gear at the end of their lifecycle. We hope that our products will last for years. However, we also need your help in our fight against throw-away culture. Wash and maintain your clothes in accordance with instructions, and have any damaged clothing or gear repaired rather than buying a new one. We give you help and support.
Sustainability is at the core of Halti’s strategy and we have set ourselves an ambitious target: to be carbon neutral by our operations at our headquaters in Finland in 2022. We have started to profoundly calculate our carbon footprint in 2018, which will be our baseline year when determining our success in reducing our carbon footprint. We have decided on multiple actions to minimize and compensate our environmental footprint towards reaching the target. But don’t worry – we will not stop at that. We will constantly find ways to minimize our footprint beyond our own operations as well, and we have started to gather data to calculate our product carbon footprint, too. We are asking you, our customer, to join us in this ambitious work by encouraging you to take good care of your clothes, wear them as long as possible and recycle them forward.
