Why is Arc'teryx a WIR DENKEN UM brand?

Guided by design, the sports community, science and passion, the company is committed to halving its environmental footprint and increasing its positive social impact. As a WIR DENKEN UM brand, Arc'teryx stands out in the following ways:

- ARC'TERYX is committed to accountability throughout the supply chain and is dedicated to responsible purchasing

- The company has pledged to having 80 percent Fair Trade certified products by 2025

-  It prides itself on environmentally friendly, resource-saving production and has set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 65 percent by 2030 (compared to 2018)

Out and about in nature with a clear conscience

Arc'teryx was founded on the idea that there is always a better solution. The wild landscape of the coastal range near the Canadian headquarters is a source of inspiration and provides perfect testing grounds: "We develop our products in the design center, but the ideas and the problems we solve come from the outdoors in the mountains.

We put all our energy into designing our equipment so it can withstand the most extreme conditions." Durability, longevity and functionality are the best prerequisites for achieving greater sustainability, which is why the company aims to convert its linear production of outdoor clothing into a circular economy. This means that all the materials and products are considered to be resources and are thus recycled instead of discarded. For Arc'teryx, sustainability also means a long-term approach: "The climate emergency requires us to act with a sense of urgency."

Explore the beauty of earth under most demanding conditions with Arc'teryx

The company Arc´teryx was founded in 1989. The name Arc'teryx originates from the Archaeopteryx Lithographica. A creature from the Jurassic period, which was an excellent climber and the first reptile to develop feathers for flight, freeing itself from the constraints of the horizontal world.

The mountaineering clothing from Arc'teryx is designed to withstand difficult natural conditions and to protect the athletes from wind and weather (especially ice and coldness on the mountain). 

In order to find the ideal equipment more easily, the product names of ski, trekking and climbing clothing, and even the ones of shoes, include certain abbreviations that refer to the different application areas. For example, in the product names of the Cerium down collection or the Atomic insulation jackets and Gamma hiking trousers, you can often find a LT, standing for "light weight", or even a SL, standing for "superlight". These garments are characterized by very high functionality, minimalistic but optimized features and very low weight and pack size. The Alpha or Beta Hardshell jackets but also shirts or hoodies are often characterized by AR, standing for "Allround", which indicates a versatile application area and numerous functions. Ski touring pants, however, are often characterized by light, functional and flexible material, which is indicated by FL, standing for "Fast & Light".
