Halti's sustainable development programme

Respect for man and nature is the basis of all Halti’s activities. No one can ignore climate change and environmental issues anymore. Our products are designed for an outdoor life and sport, and it's important for us to bear our responsibility for our environmental and economic footprint. As a company, we also take full responsibility for respecting people by manufacturing our products in socially and ethically acceptable conditions, in compliance with the laws and regulations of the countries where we operate, as well as the guidelines of the industry. We look into the future — we think in the long term and do our best to ensure that future generations will also be able to enjoy a clean environment. We think ahead!
