At VIST, sustainability is not just a buzzword; it's a core principle deeply embedded in our company ethos. Hailing from the breathtaking Italian Dolomites, where nature's beauty and robust ecosystems inspire us, we are committed to preserving the environment and making a positive impact in the winter sports industry.
While skiers and snowboarders revel in the wonders of snowy slopes, we recognize the disconnection between these exhilarating experiences and the environmental toll caused by traditional gear and practices. At VIST, we stand out from our competitors as pioneers in championing a more environmentally friendly route, and our mission is to inspire others in the industry to follow suit.
Let’s get straight to the point:
- Long Lasting: To ensure long-lasting impact, our efforts begin with the design and production of our garments. We prioritize durability, crafting pieces that can withstand the test of time, ultimately reducing the need for frequent replacements and curbing wasteful production. With every VIST purchase, customers can rest assured that their investment contributes to minimising waste and its impact on the environment.
- Recycled: Innovation plays a crucial role in our sustainability journey. We utilize sustainable fabrics, including recycled, bio-based, and renewably sourced materials, such as the innovative Sorona polymer, which helps us significantly reduce carbon emissions. A notable breakthrough in our efforts is the incorporation of recycled fishermen's nets as the primary fabric in our garments, turning waste into something valuable.
- Supply Chain: Moreover, we recognize that sustainability extends beyond environmental protection; it also involves safeguarding human rights. To ensure fair practices and prevent any involvement in underpaid or child labor, we maintain strict control and authentication of our supply chain.
As we take bold steps to drive sustainability, we invite our customers to join us in this transformative journey. By choosing companies like VIST, you become a partner in the quest for environmental protection and a sustainable future. Together, let's make a positive impact on the planet, one jacket at a time.
