Canada Goose launched its Sustainable Impact Strategy outlined in the company’s first-ever Sustainability Report. The accelerated strategy includes tangible commitments supporting four key UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.

As part of its Sustainable Impact Strategy, Canada Goose outlines key commitments:

  • Carbon Neutrality: Net zero direct and indirect (Scope 1 and 2) greenhouse gas emissions by 2025, through aggressive and tangible action plans which aim to reduce emissions by more than 80 percent.

  • Reclaimed Fur: In 2022, Canada Goose plans to introduce reclaimed fur into its supply chain, which includes beginning to manufacture parkas using reclaimed fur and ending the purchasing of new fur. The company also plans to launch a consumer buy-back program for fur in the months ahead.

  • Responsible Down Standard (RDS): In 2019, in partnership with Textile Exchange, the company completed third-party compliance audits at 100 percent of its manufacturing facilities and commits to being 100 percent RDS-certified by 2021.

  • Bluesign-approved: Commit to reach 90 percent of Canada Goose fabrics as bluesign-approved for responsible and sustainable practices by 2025, increasing from 32 percent in 2019.

  • Plastic-Free: Eliminating single-use plastics in all Canada Goose owned or controlled facilities.

“We have always believed in building a business that is good for our team, for the communities we’re a part of and for the planet, for generations to come,” says Dani Reiss, president and CEO of Canada Goose. “No matter how much we’ve done over the last 60 years, we need to do more–the world can’t wait. Our aggressive commitments outlined in our first Sustainability Report are the steps we’re taking to transform the way we do business and ensure we are doing everything we can to create the future we want to see.”

As part of its accelerated Sustainable Impact Strategy, Canada Goose also announced it achieved carbon neutrality as of March 2020 through investments in strategic offsetting projects, equivalent to 200 percent of its annual greenhouse gas emissions. The company will continue to offset at this level as it continues to transform business operations to achieve its 80 percent emissions reduction targets by 2025.
