SUSTAINABILITY

Red Wing operates as a culture of conservation, keeping a continuous check on our environmental impacts according to National Environmental Quality Standards.

Our sustainable certifications make Red Wing the responsible choice for your safety and the planet.

OEKO-TEX®

OEKO-TEX is the leading certification in ethical production, supporting both better working conditions and a healthier planet. You can purchase Red Wing’s OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 garments and PPE with confidence that they are fully traceable and tested for the presence of harmful substances.

CASCALE and The Higg Index

As Cascale members, we work with the Higg Index Facilities Social and Labor Module to measure the impact of manufacturing across all areas, including wages, working hours, health and safety, and employee treatment.

OUR PRACTICE

In 2023, Red Wing implemented an enterprise-wide data measurement project to set a baseline and reduction strategy for our carbon, chemical, and water emissions.

Carbon:

The making and moving of our products has a carbon footprint that is generated throughout various stages of our business.

We commit to understanding our carbon baseline and setting science-based targets in alignment with the Paris Climate Agreement 2030 and 2050 goals.

CHEMISTRY:

New chemistry is introduced into our environment every day that can have a negative impact on the delicate biodiversity of our planet.

We commit to adopting a transparent Restricted Substance List for our supply chain, and to source locally from suppliers with regenerative practices.

Waste

Waste management is critical to the health of our ecosystem and linked directly with air emissions, water quality, and chemical management.

We commit to establishing deliberate recycling practices within our operations, and participating in circular ecommerce programs that fully utilize the longevity and durability of our products and materials.

WATER

Clean water is a precious finite resource.

 

We commit to understanding the water consumption associated with the manufacturing of our products, specifically through work with our tannery S.B. Foot, who are innovators within water conservation and purification practices.
