RESPECT THE LAND, THE SEA AND THE LOCAL PEOPLE

Respect has always been one of Dakine's core values. In the very beginning, Dakine's first product was a surf leash born out of respect for the waves of Maui and the locals who faced them.

RESPECT THE LAND, THE SEA AND THE LOCAL PEOPLE

Respect has always been one of Dakine's core values. In the very beginning, Dakine's first product was a surf leash born out of respect for the waves of Maui and the locals who faced them. The land and the sea are much more than our playground. These places are our sanctuaries, where we find refuge, freedom and cohesion.

The locals are much more than simply the people who live there. They are the guardians and experts who teach us how to proceed, how to engage, and also how to return home safely.Our sustainability efforts are based on respect and appreciation for these places and relationships. We believe that our planet and our communities need help. Ultimately, we can have a positive impact on the world by reducing the impact of our products, optimizing our internal processes and helping to create a community of advocates through our shared passion.

RESPECT IN OUR PRODUCTS

This is how we make the things we make:

The best thing we can do is create great products. But even the best products have an impact on the environment. We're always working to reduce that impact while delivering durable and functional products. Every year, our knowledge and material options improve, allowing us to approach product design with a variety of techniques that prioritize optimal performance while minimizing environmental impact.

Durability:

When building a Dakine product, our first priority is durability. When gear is built to last, it's less likely to end up in the trash.

Greener materials:

We do our best to use materials that minimize our impact on the environment and the people who work with them. Each year, we manufacture more products that incorporate the following greener options:

Recycled materials:

Dakine has a long history of using recycled PET materials. Each year we strive to use more of them without compromising durability. Our PET polyester fibers come from used, recycled plastic water bottles and are used in products from backpacks to apparel.

bluesign®-approved materials:

The bluesign® system (www.bluesign.com) reviews a material's entire supply chain to ensure it uses the most environmentally friendly chemical operations and processes. We use bluesign™-approved materials throughout our product range.

PWRS:

PFCs are chemicals generally used in Durable Water Repellant (DWR) agents to make gear and textiles water resistant. Certain PFCs have been shown to contaminate the water system. Therefore, we are working with our partners to increase the use of PFC-free and PFC(ec)-free DWR treatments.

The relationship with our manufacturing sites:

The health and well-being of the people who manufacture our products is critical. Our Code of Conduct agreement and our Prohibited Substances List (AAFA v19) ensure that all of our manufacturing partners take worker protection, the environment and the law as seriously as we do.

RESPECT IN OUR BUSINESS

This is what we do in the office

Dakine is fortunate to have offices on the banks of the beautiful Columbia River in Hood River, Oregon, USA as well as at the foot of the Alps in Annecy, France. As a reflection of our values and our magnificent surroundings, we strive to make our work environment as healthy as possible and our impact on the environment as minimal as possible. This is where small changes can lead to big shifts in people's attitudes.

Recycling:

Our goal is to continually increase the amount of recyclable scrap materials that would otherwise end up in the trash. Dakine has invested in new recycling and composting stations throughout the office to make recycling easy to implement and increasingly available to all employees.

Compost:

Dakine works with a regional composter that supports a sustainable, regional economy by collecting, processing and using valuable organic nutrients for food production. Everything from coffee grounds to food scraps finds its way back.

Renewable energy:

We now meet half of our energy needs from renewable resources such as hydropower, wind and solar.
