The fabrics we source are BlueSign® approved and almost entirely constructed from recycled materials. By 2023, 90% of the polyester used in our products will come from recycled sources. Our commitment to better fabrics extends to the chemistry for water repellent coatings. All products, with the exception of our umbrella, use non-PFC coatings and we are actively searching for a non-PFC solution for our umbrella which delivers the performance we require. We have a Restricted Substances List in place with our suppliers and have made our RSL publicly available.
TRACK & MEASURE
Helinox and DAC have partnered with the HIGG index to track and measure the environmental impact of the products we manufacture. All repairs & warranty claims are tracked for continuous improvement to our products so they can last longer and go further. We are committed to tracking our C02 emissions to better understand our carbon footprint as an organization.
We are committed to fair and transparent labor practices across our supply chain. To that end, our Supplier Code of Conduct is publicly available. We are also using the HIGG Factory Environmental Module as a way to track our partner suppliers' progress and reduce audit fatigue for suppliers.
