La Sportiva has been operating for over 80 years in the environmentally fascinating region of the Val di Fiemme, a valley situated at the foothills of the Dolomites. Such a location fosters a strong sense of responsibility for both social and environmental issues.
These have always played a vital role within the company as it strives to make use of low environmental impact technology and production methods. This is further enhanced by the ISO certification which puts the focus on the environment and requires businesses to employ eco–friendly solutions.
Since entering the technical clothing sector in January 2012, La Sportiva has become an official Bluesign® member. This certifies that their textile supply chain complies with the internationally recognized environmental and social criteria endorsed by Bluesign®. In 2014/15 winter season La Sportiva is going to introduce the first full certify Bluesign® Product. Check out the Bluesign label on base-layer garments (all the seamless base-layer).
