Canada Goose vows to “keep the planet cold and the people on it warm”

Canada Goose has announced it will only use 100 per cent sustainable packaging by 2025 according to its 2020 Sustainability Report.

The report notes the luxury fashion brand’s progress so far and its plans to continue its sustainability commitments.

“Climate change is real. We must act now,” Canada Goose advisor Bill Nye said.

“I am proud to partner with Canada Goose. They are working to keep the planet cold and the people on it warm

“Working together, I believe we can bring attention to the need to manufacture products sustainably and responsibly. It’s an opportunity for corporate leadership that consumers will recognize and embrace.”

The report highlights the brand’s commitment to make sure 90 per cent of its materials are preferred fibres and materials such as renewable and organic fibres.

Canada Goose vice president of corporate citizenship Gavin Thompson said: “This year’s Sustainability Report builds upon the hard work we started in 2019 and takes it even further.”

The fashion retailer promise to only use 100 per cent sustainable packaging by 2025 will be rolled out across its business operations including marketing, manufacturing and direct-to-consumer.

Its report promises to adopt renewable energy commitments by 2022 and develop its strategies for recycling, reusing and up-cycling unused and post-warranty materials and products.

Canada Goose released its most sustainable parka to date in January, the Standard Expedition Parka uses 30 per cent less carbon and 65 per cent less water in its production compared to the previous Expedition Parka.

Canada Goose design director Niamh McManus added: “At Canada Goose, our approach to design is always focused on quality, durability and functionality, while never sacrificing on performance.”

The brand has already achieved a number of its several initial goals since its inaugural sustainability report in April last year including carbon neutrality for company operations.

The retailer has also joined the Bluesign raw materials standard as an official partner and created the reclaimed fur standard as part of its mission to end the purchasing of new fur by 2022.
