Jack Wolfskin will publish all the addresses of their direct suppliers and manufacturers on 5 September. The published list will contain a complete breakdown of all manufacturers across all three divisions; apparel, shoes and equipment.
These companies are categorised as "level 1" in order to distinguish them from earlier steps in the production process, such as the manufacturing of materials and extraction of raw materials. They are predominately found in Asia, though some are also located in Europe.
By publishing a detailed plan of action in the spring under the motto, "We go further", Jack Wolfskin has cemented its status as an industry pioneer in the environmentally friendly management of chemicals.
In extending its current responsibility for the product to include comprehensive responsibility for its production, Jack Wolfskin has made a commitment to transparency with regard to its manufacturers throughout the supply chain. Using the motto "We go further", the company aims to avoid all harmful substances, including fluorinated compounds, in its production process by 2020.
Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht and Fresenius University of Applied Sciences are collaborating with Jack Wolfskin in order to achieve these goals through fundamental research as well as research into applications.
