Our mission is to make our clothing
& product as sustainable as possible

We are doing what we can, where we can, to look after our planet. We are committed to creating great products in a sustainable way and to making positive progress every year and we are bringing our factories and suppliers along with us on the journey.

We call this Mindfully Made. It’s our commitment to doing better every day.

We realise that to take control of our supply chain, we must understand where our product comes from. We have mapped our Tier 1 (garment manufacturers) and Tier 2 (fabric and trim manufacturers) and have progressed onto fibre, yarn and raw materials suppliers to ensure that we have full visibility.

Traceability - large tree leaves


We take responsibility for our staff and workers in our factories very seriously, which is why we have been members of the Ethical Trading Initiative since 2012.

Our Modern slavery policy maps out what we are doing within our operations and supply chain worldwide.

We want to make a positive difference to the lives of those touched by our business.


Savar Primary School

We have been funding the Savar Primary School, located in our garment factory area in Dhaka, Bangladesh, for over 11 years. The school offers life-changing education to 262 students, aged 4-14 years, including 58 children with learning and physical disabilities. We provide a nutritious meal for every child, run a scholarship programme and have employed an old pupil as librarian of a fully stocked library.

RHEP Programme

RHEP Programme

The RHEP Programme educates and empowers female workers in Bangladesh on health, hygiene, nutrition, finance and family planning with a dedicated space for workers to go to discuss sensitive matters. The programme has been completed in 9 factories in Bangladesh, reaching over 15,500 workers. Some factories also have a dedicated helpline they can contact.


In the UK

A small action group from across the Group has been working with local primary schools in Trafford and Salford to help their most vulnerable children over the Christmas school holidays and beyond by providing essential food and festive items.

We are constantly reviewing the size of our polybags to ensure that the smallest possible size is used on each product and size within the same style. We only source polybags that are made from at least 50% recycled material and we are working towards 100% with each of our suppliers.

As we our so proud of our products we have a guarantee for life and offer advice on how to care for them. However if a repair is needed, we are working with Timpson to provide free repairs (where eligible). We also work with Children’s charity Newlife who will take our returns and end of line stock to sell, profits from which are invested into life-saving equipment for disabled and terminally ill children. Our products are being created more circular from design, to ensure that they are easily recycled at the end of life.

We have taken a stand against the use of Down in all our products and now only offer man-made fillings in all our insulated products. Our man-made insulation has some recycled content and is hypo-allergenic, dries faster than it’s Down counterpart and offers as much warmth as Down.

We only use gold standard tanneries for our leather boots and shoes. They use better methods of tanning creating less waste and using less water. We also use flame lamination to apply our AquaDry membrane.

We only use wool which has been ethically sourced and is fully traceable with the Australian Wool Exchange or the Wool Mark certificate.

In some of our footwear styles, we use recycled coffee beans in our EVA midsoles. We have been researching into second life products to introduce into future ranges. One area we have looked at is the use of oyster shells. The oyster shells are responsibly sourced and would normally be the product of food waste. The crushed shells are added to the extrusion process to make polyester.

For 2021, we mapped out the chemicals we were using and we started to use more plant based ones. The Nosi Botanicals range uses a plant based anti-insect bite treatment made from lemon eucalyptus. The lemon eucalyptus is sustainably sourced as it is taken from the leaves and branches, while keeping the tree intact. From Winter 21, we have been using EcoShield - a PFC free plant-based water-repellent chemical which will feature across all our products with DWR.

We first introduced recycled content into our range in 2015 with our Corey and Miska microfleece. Since then we strive to reduce our impact by increasing the amount of part recycled materials in our products whilst ensuring they are still fit for purpose. Since Winter 20, over 70% of Craghoppers products have been made using part recycled materials, compared to 12% in AW19. We use yarns which have been sourced from suppliers that are certified by the Global Recycled Standard (GRS). By the end of 2022 we will have recycled over 70 million post-consumer plastic bottles.

We are currently testing our fabrics and aim for 50% of fabrics being tested for fibre fragmenting by the end of 2022. We are aware that microplastic shedding is a well known and dangerous polluter to our water systems. Our luxury Microfleece has extra finishing to remove these excess fibres. This has resulted in significantly less shedding than others on the market. Microfibres lost in the production process are collected by the vacuum system and recycled into wall insulation. We joined the Microfibre Consortium in 2017 to find a solution to Microfibre leakage into our oceans. We are working with the research programme and other likeminded companies, to find better fibres, yarns and fabrics to use in our collections which are kinder to the environment.

The Better Cotton is a global non-profit organisation that is driving cotton production which is better for those who produce it and for the environment. As members of Better Cotton, we ensure that our cotton meets the highest standards for sustainability, for workers conditions and that the right price is paid for the cotton. We call this the holistic approach to cotton production
