As part of ongoing initiatives to improve production processes and reduce environmental impact, Patagonia is committed to minimizing its negative impact on nature. The company’s technologists are diligently calculating how much water they will need at one stage or another of production and are very happy when they manage to reach a minimum. Chemists control everything to be as clean and harmless as possible. And a whole team of athletes confirms their success by example.

Modern Patagonia brand is one of the largest and most famous manufacturers of clothing and equipment for climbers, tourists and all who are interested in outdoor activities. And it all began many years ago with the modest manual production of climbing “iron” and developed into a simple, but such a complex idea. The idea is to grow a business where financial performance and growth rates will remain in the background; a company in which employees will feel free and secure, as in their own family; a company that will not only not cause harm to nature, but will also be responsible to it.
