It all starts with our purpose: we champion an active childhood to raise a generation ready for the world to come. Our purpose is at the heart of our sustainability strategy, which ensures our broader mission and sustainability strategy are always aligned.
Our sustainability strategy can be illustrated as a pyramid. The three corners – sustainable product, responsible supply chain, and commitment to all stakeholders – form the foundations of our day-to-day sustainability work.
Sustainable product: Reima lasts from one child to another
For us, a sustainable product is one that lasts from one child to another. Uncompromised quality is the core of our business, and our gear is both durable and made in classic designs. Our products are safe to use: we have strict standards for both chemical and physical safety. We invest in sustainable materials: organic, recycled and responsibly sourced fibers. We prolong to lifecycle of our products with second-hand and repair initiatives, and make monomaterial products for easy recycling.

Responsibile supply chain: Transparency and compliance in focus
We are committed to respecting human rights throughout our operations and supply chain. Our Supplier Code of Conduct is based on internationally recognized standards on human and labour rights. To ensure social compliance, our suppliers are third-party audited – mostly by amfori BSCI – and we also conduct our own audits. In the interest of transparency, our tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers lists are public. We work towards a more responsible and climate friendly supply chain together with our partners.

Commitment to all stakeholders: Collaboration and ethical business practices in order to make an impact
We believe that responsible companies share a fundamental commitment to all stakeholders: customers, business partners, communities, shareholders and – one of the most important stakeholder groups – our employees. We are committed to conducting business in an honest and ethical manner, and to creating value for all our stakeholders and to the wider community. We collaborate with a variety of organizations to make a positive difference, and we take care of our planet for future generations.
