AT THE HEART OF OUR SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY LIES OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET.
The planet we live on is our only source of food, water, oxygen and precious resources. It also offers uniquely beautiful places that provide us all – not just outdoor enthusiasts – with a fascinating range of ecosystems and environments that energize and sustain us.
As a brand we hold responsibility. Responsibility toward our customers means offering high quality, durable products. And responsibility toward our employees means ensuring fair working conditions for those who work hard to create our products. And that responsibility reaches beyond our company to the society in which we live.
TOGETHER FOR 360° RESPONSIBILITY
Based on these principles, ‘Together for 360° Responsibility’ combines existing efforts with quantifiable targets that we've set for 2025.
Our Promise Policy
We strive to preserve what we love for future generations by accepting responsibility for both people and planet - that is why we ensure the careful use of resources and eco-friendly production, as well as fair working conditions. To do so, we uphold the highest standards and cultivate lasting relationships with our manufacturing and development partners.
In this regard, our Promise Policy outlines the most important principles and rules for all our activities - transparently, openly, and bindingly.
The Promise Policy and its related Guidelines (Planet & People Guideline) are specifically geared toward the needs of deuter’s direct and indirect suppliers. They define deuter's requirements and recommendations regarding social and environmental sustainability issues towards all production partners in order to reduce the risk of harmful practices. Thereby they provide informative and practical guidance on how to achieve best practices and compliance with the policy.
The Policy and its related Guidelines are communicated to suppliers in the form of a Supplier Handbook via an e-learning platform. The complete Supplier Handbook can be viewed here after registration.
