Canada Goose has announced that it is certified according to the Responsibility Standard (RDS), which guarantees the brand’s compliance with stability and animal welfare. RDS is a voluntary international program that monitors the safety chain of certified products and ensures that RDS standards are maintained throughout the supply chain.
“We are driven by the goal of keeping the planet cool and the people who live on it cool.” With today’s announcement, we have reached another milestone in our journey to reach it, months ahead of schedule.
Globally recognized in the consumer and textile industry, RDS certification meets common expectations and is in line with Canada Goose’s goal of developing best-in-class products that incorporate sustainable innovations. As a Certified Member, Canada Goose will continue to actively participate in the RDS Global Task Force, which is managed by Textile Exchange, to ensure that RDS continues to evolve and reflect industry best practices.
“The Responsible Down Standard is a global standard for best practices in feather production,” said La Rhea Pepper, CEO of the Textile Exchange. “RDS helps ensure that the welfare of ducks and geese is protected at the farm level and then helps to locate products throughout the supply chain. We are pleased to see Canada Goose achieving this high standard.
Earlier this year, Canada Goose launched a dedicated humanitarian platform dedicated to value-based initiatives and set net zero targets by 2025. 90% of Canada Goose fabrics must obtain bluesine approval for responsible and sustainable practices by 2025; And by 2025 will convert 90% of its products to custom fibers and materials (PFMs) that will be a standard alternative to conventional materials.
