More sustainable and fair value chain
We are particularly committed to having a sustainable and responsible business practice throughout our value chain. Our overall goal is to make a positive difference to the local communities in which we operate. We are therefore working to ensure decent working conditions and employment and human rights, and we are continually exploring more sustainable production methods and are investigating how we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions from production.
Due diligence assessments and sustainable business practice
Bergans has been run by dedicated outdoor staff for over 100 years. We are dependent on both people and nature. We need natural resources to create our products and people to design, manufacture and distribute these. We make our living from products that will be used out in the natural environment by people who enjoy walking. We must therefore take care of people and nature affected by our activities for both present and future generations.
For us, having a sustainable business practice that respects people, society and the environment is a prerequisite for running our business. We are therefore working continuously and strategically to ensure this.
We are a member of STICA (The Swedish Textile Initiative on Climate Action), where together with other stakeholders in the industry, we have committed ourselves to set scientifically-based targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris Agreement, report annual emissions figures and initiate specific measures to reduce emissions throughout the value chain.
