The high score reflects FW Apparel’s dedication to sustainable manufacturing. The company is: sourcing premium materials only, preferring to use recycled and recyclable fabrics with Oeko-Tex® and Bluesign® certification; sourcing materials local to the factory to reduce the carbon cost of transporting goods; screening suppliers for high standards of environmental and social compliance; offering a robust, global clothing repair service to extend the life of its garments; working diligently to reduce its carbon footprint, and offsetting emissions using high quality offsets, investing in renewable energy production; and partnering with 1% for the Planet from inception.

“Receiving B Corp™ Certification represents another exciting step in the journey of our young brand, just after we’ve had the privilege of unveiling our new Fall/Winter 22/23 Collection to the world,” says Co-Founder, Olivier Gouby. “This year represents a new chapter for us, as we welcome Emilie Valade as our Head of Apparel and Janni Christensen as Product Manager, bringing an elevated level of talent and expertise to our team.” Valade and Christensen are set to drive a new evolution of FW, drawing on 25+ years of experience in the outdoor industry, spent with brands including Salomon, Picture Organic Clothing, Burton, Arc’teryx, and Norrøna.
