Sustainability has been a core principle at EXPED from the very start. Durability, reliability and repairability of our products are key focus areas in their development. In addition, longstanding and close relationships with our partner factories are essential to us. EXPED places great emphasis on environmental and climate protection.

Climate Protection with myclimate

All our product groups and our operations will be CO2-balanced with myclimate from 2024. It is only through this approach that we can uncover opportunities for cost savings and effectively implement measures for improvement. 

As per the calculated emissions for our products, we fund certified climate protection projects through myclimate.

CO2 reduction

The decarbonization of the supply chain is a major challenge for the globalized economy. EXPED is facing this challenge together with European Outdoor Group (EOG) as a partner. By joining forces, more can be achieved.

All materials used in our products have been tested according to the highest quality and durability standards. EXPED products mainly featuree oeko-tex® 100 or bluesign® certified fabrics, buckles and zippers.

An increasing number of EXPED products also feature recycled materials. These are materials that have been obtained from previously produced goods - for example, from PET bottles or material waste from textile production. For years, we have also been upcycling and using material scraps that would otherwise have been discarded in other products.

We are striving to be completely PFC-free by 2025 at the latest. 100% of the EXPED range has already been PFOA (C8)-free since 2016. Only around 15% of our products still contain materials treated with DWR C6. This translates to 85% of our products being PFC-free. We completely avoid flame retardant (FR) treatments and fabrics made of PVC.

Service and circularity


Repair instead of discarding

All EXPED products are designed for maximum longevity. We repair products in our specialized workshops - even if it is not always economically viable. We process warranty cases and repairs with a professional team in-hous in our own workshops. The feedback and data gathered is a valuable source of information for future improvements and innovations - and for long-lasting products.

With the mat testing equipment in our repair workshops, our repair team can find even the smallest puncture. We are pleased to be able to offer our customers exceptional and reliable service.

No single use plastic

All EXPED packaging is reduced to a minimum and is made of FSC certified recyclable paper and cardboard. This reduces the amount of resources used, contributes to cleaner air as packaging does not require incineration and does not add to the huge amount of plastics that contaminate our oceans.

Certain accessories in our range are packaged in reusable zippered pouches. Only a few products, that need additional protection, come in an individual polybags.

We support opportunities to give products "multiple lives" in the form of share economy and secondhand schemes. In this way, even used or repaired products find new happy owners.

For example, createlab - rent equipment and simply return it - or the secondhand Outdoorshop 2nd Peak. Two local partners with whom cooperate.


Ethics and transparency

Factory Visit from Jasper


The people behind our products are valuable to us. We have been working in partnership with our suppliers for decades. We see this continuity as the basis for sustainable development in our supply chain. EXPED is NOT a member of the Fair Wear Foundation. About 80% of our products come from factories that are regularly audited by Fair Wear.

Our Supplier

Our Supplier Code of Conduct


The down used in our products is certified in accordance with the Responsible Down Standard (RDS) and is fully traceable. RDS adheres to the strictest animal welfare guidelines and guarantees species-appropriate animal husbandry without live plucking or forced feeding. Down, as a natural product, is almost indestructible. The down from non-repairable products is recycled and flows back into our new products.

Each bag’s down is traceable throughout its supply chain, and every bag is sold with a QR code that links to compliance-specific data from the IDFL.

EXPED commits to source 100% of our wool from RWS certified farmers and suppliers. The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) aims to improve the welfare of sheep and the land they graze on. It is based on the five provisions and animal welfare aims and includes no mulesing. RWS is a voluntary standard to which farmers and vendors may be certified to show their progressive approach to animal and environmental welfare.
