Sustainability Practices




Eagle Creek aims to protect our environment, giving back to communities, supporting multiple conservation cause initiatives, repairing damaged products, and using recycled fabrics.

Eagle Creek uses a small proportion of sustainable materials such as recycled polyester and regenerated nylon.

The backpack brand creates a lot of its products with polluting, synthetic, petroleum-based fibers, such as conventional polyester and nylon made from oil.

As part of VF Corporation, Eagle Creek uses the same supply chain as its parent company. It publishes a list of its manufacturing and processing facilities and makes it available publicly on its corporate website.

It also monitors most of its supply chain and all its main production sites to ensure compliance with social and labor standards.

The company is expanding its traceability and transparency efforts as well as collaborating with human rights experts, governments, international organizations, and non-profits to conduct ongoing human rights due diligence.

The 2020 Fashion Transparency Index gave VF Corporation a score of 59% based on how much the group discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts. VF Corporation earned 7th place in the top 10 most transparent brands.

Eagle Creek doesn't use any exotic animal skin, or hair, fur, angora. But it uses leather to manufacture many of its bags and accessories.

Leather production is cruel and unethical. It also harms the environment by releasing toxic chemicals, producing greenhouse gases, and generating wastes. More sustainable alternatives exist.


Sustainability Goals

Together with VF Corporation, Eagle Creek commits to being a leader in the large-scale commercialization of circular business models by 2030.

It wants to contribute to local communities and empower consumers to live more active and sustainable lifestyles.

Eagle Creek has reduction targets for its greenhouse gas emissions in line with meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement.

It partners with global consultancy the Carbon Trust to gather data from its suppliers and plans an absolute reduction of Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 (2017 baseline).

Eagle Creek also plans an absolute reduction of Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 (2017 baseline) through a focus on farm-to-retail materials, sourcing operations, and logistics.

Eagle Creek aims to halve its upstream environmental impact, farm-to-front door by 2050. It has a system in place to improve the lives of 2 million workers and their communities by 2025.
