Our promise to the planet
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
In 75 years of experience, we've seen the world evolve, change and adapt itself. Today, more than ever, it is essential to educate ourselves and to understand our impact on the environment. In the last few years, Auclair has associated itself with several organizations and companies to better understand the current environmental challenges and take action to create a change.
All our new collections are developed with the future in mind using socially and environmentally responsible sourcing and manufacturing methods. The only footprints we want to see are the ones we leave in the snow.
We are in the process of a transition to a circular economy, with an increased focus on renewable resources and goods that have less social and environmental consequences. Owing to this fact, our commitment is to develop solutions that deliver on the fit, comfort and performance that is expected from Auclair while reducing the socio-environmental repercussions of our products throughout their life cycle, from manufacturing to disposal.
