“Never Stop Exploring” is more than just a tagline—it’s the way we choose to live our lives, both personally and at The North Face®. We love the outdoors; it's where we develop character, confidence, clear minds, healthy bodies and respect for nature. We believe in sharing this passion by enabling all types of exploration, from your backyard to the Himalayan peaks. While our heritage is built on a love for exploring the planet, we are just as passionate about protecting it.

We have embarked on one of our most challenging expeditions to date: the journey towards sustainability. We take a holistic approach to sustainability that begins with our day-to-day business activities and extends to our manufacturing process and beyond. At every step along the way, we are faced with choices, and we strive to do what’s best for the planet at all times. 

We know that our efforts can always be improved upon, so we will never stop exploring four key sustainability areas: Product InnovationCommunity EngagementGreenhouse Gas Reduction and Waste Elimination. We are confident that this journey will prove to be our most rewarding.
