Bergans lives to let people experience the outdoors. Today and in the future. To ensure that the outdoors we have today will be there for the next generation to enjoy, Bergans is committed to step up efforts, by inspiring actions in our own operations and beyond. The primary goal of the expedition is that by 2020 Bergans will be even more sustainable and be a leading actor in the industry. Expedition 2020 is the name of the sustainability journey Bergans has now embarked on.
The road ahead to 2020 is paved with major and minor goals, as well as secondary goals. Every aspect from resource management at our head office in Hokksund to working conditions and animal welfare in the production chain will be improved. One of our most important undertakings in reducing our environmental footprint is to maintain constant focus on developing high-quality products with a long useful life. The longer the product life, the shorter its overall environmental impact. Our maintenance and repair services help to extend the life of our products.
Positive Impacts in the value chain
Enable people to enjoy the outdoors
Bergans works with DNT and other organizations to enable people to share “turglede”.
By making the outdoors accessible, more people can enjoy active, healthy lifestyles and hopefully feel encouraged to help conserve the outdoors.
Promote education & health
Education and health are cornerstones for building healthy societies. Bergans supports Mountain People’s work to build schools and offer basic health services in Nepal and iCare’s work towards Vision 2020 – to eliminate preventable and treatable blindness.
Engage for conservation
Bergans is dedicated to help to stop loss of biodiversity. We are a partner of the EOCA and we support a project called WILD which aims atdocumenting some of the most amazing environments on the planet to inspire more people to engage in conservation.
