Sustainability Practices

Canada Goose is committed to strengthening its communities, protecting our planet and working towards a future for generations to come.

Canada Goose only uses a tiny proportion of organic materials such as organic cotton or recycled materials such as recycled polyester and regenerated nylon.

Only very few of its collections are dedicated to sustainable fashion. Most of the fabrics it uses are synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester and nylon.

Canada Goose also uses a tiny amount of semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as Tencel lyocell.

Tencel is an eco-friendly fiber made with wood pulp from certified sustainable forests. But only a very small proportion of the materials used by Canada Goose are environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Canada Goose doesn't publish a list of all its manufacturers and processing facilities on its corporate website. It doesn't disclose how it chooses its network of suppliers.

The 2021 Fashion Transparency Index gave Canada Goose a score of only 8% based on how much the group discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.

Canada Goose manufactures its clothes in many other East Asian countries where human rights and labor law violations still happen every day.

The Canadian clothing retailer doesn't show any labor certification standard that would ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other important rights for workers in its supply chain.

Canada Goose has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors based on the regulations set by the International Labor Organization (ILO).

Canada Goose assesses compliance with its Code of Conduct by informal visits or third-party audits with or without notice. 82% of Tier 1 suppliers that were active for the full year 2019 were audited.

Canada Goose doesn't use any exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But it uses leather, wool, and down feathers to manufacture many of its clothing pieces.

These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.

Sustainability Goals

Canada Goose has committed to achieve net-zero emissions in 2025 by reduce its GHG emissions in its Scope 1 and 2 and invest in renewable energy.

Canada Goose plans to divert 100% of post-consumer global warranty waste products by 2025.

It will increase the percentage of materials that are Preferred Fibre and Materials (PFMs) as specified by Textile Exchange to 90% by 2025.

Canada Goose will eliminate single-use plastics that we cannot be recycled by 2022 and move all packaging to more sustainable solutions by 2025.
