RevolutionRace participates in selected initiatives relevant to sustainability. These initiatives or memberships reflect an emphasis on social responsibility in the supply chain and on product safety and chemical management.
Since 2021, we have been members of the ChemAct Network, which is a digital chemical management system. Over the year, we have onboarded all our suppliers, and today, all of our suppliers actively work within the system and upload test reports according to our instructions for compliance with chemical regulations.
In 2023, we decided to become a Bluesign® System Partner to further ensure safe production and that our products are free from hazardous chemicals. Today 40% of the polyamide we use in our products is Bluesign® Approved, a certification that ensures no hazardous chemicals have been used during production.
We work with the Amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) to continuously improve the social conditions in our supply chain. 87% of our suppliers have an external audit from BSCI.
We are members of textilimportörerna (The Textile Importers). The association provides support on a broad range of topics. We especially use their Chemicals Guide for textiles that is developed in cooperation with the research institute RISE.
We are part of the Fur Free Retailer program organised by the Fur Free Alliance. It is active in more than 25 countries and unite more than 50 leading animal and environmental organisations. To protect animals we have never and will never use real fur in our products.
The Higg Facility Environmental Module (FEM) from the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) is by now a recognised instrument to measure the environmental impact of the apparel supply chain. We use the Index with our largest manufacturers and fabric suppliers.
The OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Enterprises are becoming the standard for diligent Due Diligence across industries and the basis for international and national legislation. This year we developed a Supply Chain Due Diligence Guideline based on the OECD recommendations.
PFCs (PFAS) are hazardous chemicals used in many products including durable wet treatments of outdoor clothing. PFCs pose threats to human health and the environment. The PFAS Movement gathers companies that support a ban on PFCs. Since 2019 our products are 100% PFC free.
