The DOWN CODEX® scheme was developed to manage and reduce risk in our down supply chains, to ensure that both animal welfare and quality were put at the heart of each and every one of our down products.
Our aim is to have the most comprehensive and most transparent auditing system of any outdoor brand, anywhere in the world.
Since 2009 we have been committed to ensuring that:
The down we use does not come from birds which have been live plucked or live harvested
The down we use does not come from birds which have been force-fed
The down we use should be from birds which have raised in good conditions and to high standards of animal welfare
The down we use should be a by-product of the meat industry and come from birds which have been humanely slaughtered.
