The brand also built seven new water towers in its manufacturing partners’ communities, bringing its total to 22 water towers built through the Columbia Clean Drinking Water Program. Each water tower provides up to 1,800 people per day with clean drinking water, the company said in its 2020 Corporate Responsibility Report.
Columbia Sportswear also had at least 72 per cent of styles across brands that contained one or more preferred material attributes and diverted 2.6 million polybags from landfills due to Prana eliminating polybags from certain products.
The report includes progress made throughout 2020 in the three main areas of focus in its corporate responsibility strategy – empowering people, sustaining places and responsible practices. It includes work accomplished by its four primary brands – Columbia, Sorel, Mountain Hardwear and Prana.
“Throughout the year, we remained true to our core values by continuing to invest in our employees and sustainable manufacturing processes, while focusing on urgent social challenges,” said Tim Boyle, chairman, president and CEO. “I’m proud that our employees rose to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, not only by being as productive as ever, but by excelling.”
