We create professional grade gear to help people stay and feel alive in the harshest environments in the world. Ever since Helly Hansen was founded by sea captain Helly Juell Hansen in 1877, we have developed high-quality gear to protect people at sea and in the mountains, and we have an obligation to protect these environments.
HELLY HANSEN SUSTAINABILITY
After 140+ years in business, we know that long-term success can only be achieved by respecting, protecting and promoting ethical values, human rights and the environment. We are committed to continue advocating for the responsible use and enjoyment of the oceans, mountains and the greater outdoors. By applying a holistic and scientific approach to all our decisions, we strive to ensure our actions support the possibility for people and the planet to thrive.
MATERIALS & TECHNOLOGIES
Our aspiration is to make products that can live through generations. Long-lasting products require durable materials, which is a priority for us and an advantage for the environment. Therefore, we constantly work to develop and choose materials with the lowest environmental impact.
MANUFACTURING - FAIR WORKING PRACTICES
The textile and garment industry is made up of a complex supply chain stretched all over the globe. It covers industries such as chemical suppliers, yarn spinners, material suppliers, and garment manufacturers, often situated in countries with weak social regulations.
USE - LONG LASTING PRODUCTS
For the past 140 years, Helly Hansen has developed and tested its technologies together with professionals living and working in some of the world’s harshest environments. Their spirit, experiences, and feedback are woven into every detail and every fiber of our garments. We design these garments to be durable and long-lasting for even the toughest critics.
END OF LIFE
Central to our sustainability efforts is our focus on the quality, performance and longevity of our products. With growing internal awareness around the textile waste challenges and opportunities to utilize products and materials in a second life, we are currently evaluating and researching possibilities for Helly Hansen to be a positive part of the circle.
