We are excited to share a major milestone with you - Olmsted Outerwear has achieved B Corp certification. This means that we are now part of a global network of businesses who uphold high social and environmental standards. We are proud to be a part of this community and committed to making a positive impact.
What is B Corp Certification?
B Corp Certification means that a company has been verified as meeting B Lab's high social and environmental impact standards, has made a legal commitment to stakeholder governance, and is demonstrating accountability and transparency by disclosing this performance record in a public B Corp profile.
Our B Corp journey
Getting certified is an expansive project. The B Corp certification process is rigorous. The audits implied surveying our supply chain, employee benefits, environmental impact, and engagement with the community - the whole business entity. This process propelled us to look inward, question, improve, and ultimately emerge more robust and more committed than ever.
Sustainability at our core
Sustainability is the core principle of Olmsted Outerwear - our foundation's mission. We've always prided ourselves on using organic, recycled and sustainably sourced natural materials, ensuring ethical labour practices, and striving to reduce our carbon footprint. And now, as a B Corp, we're held to even higher standards.
What does this mean for you?
By wearing an Olmsted, you're breathing life into a supply chain infused with positive impact and one that gives back to land conservation and the protection of biodiversity.
Being a certified B Corporation is a win for every customer who has chosen an Olmsted jacket and a commitment to a more equitable society.
The road ahead
We're excited to push the boundaries of what it means to be a sustainable business. We are part of a movement that believes in change through action. Expect to see more innovative designs, community initiatives and efforts of circularity.
A heartfelt thank you
This achievement wouldn't have been possible without you - our customers, supporters, and believers. Your trust in Olmsted fuels our passion and commitment.
Thank you for being part of our journey.
Happy, warm and wild living!
The Olmsted team
