A Force For Sustainability
ALLIED FEATHER AND DOWN
SENIOR MANAGER OF CORPORATE
Writing a sustainability statement is easy. Committing to and nurturing it are more difficult, but that hasn’t stopped Peter Haney and Columbia from making sustainability one of the brand’s top priorities. Columbia’s size is, at once, an asset and a challenge. On one hand, when you’re as big as Columbia, well-executed sustainability measures can have deep impact at the corporate, industry and consumer level. On the other hand, scaling sustainability efforts across such a vast and complex supply chain is a monumental undertaking. It depends on synergy and cooperation from facilities and suppliers who are all committed to the same goals. Enter Daniel and Allied, who are recognized as one of the world’s most responsible down producers. A vetted and trusted ingredient supplier for Columbia, Allied is influencing other down suppliers with its responsible approach to sourcing and treating down. Through their joint participation in OIA’s Sustainability Working Group and their business relationship, Columbia and Allied Feather and Down represent our industry’s leadership in global manufacturing.
Alone we can each do something.
Together we can do anything.
