Volcom, True To This…. Volcom's principle is to push these limits!
Volcom wants to reduce its environmental and societal impact by adopting responsible manufacturing practices, responsible fibre sourcing and thorough impact assessment. Volcom remains true to its motto, True to This. At Volcom, it is essential to contribute to a new future by preserving the integrity of the oceans, the stability of the climate and working towards a more conscious society.
Volcom's product creation is centered on sustainable development and is based on three fundamental principles:
Volcom's P.A.S.S. (Product and Occupational Safety) program ensures that products are manufactured in accordance with responsible practices and the highest social and chemical use standards. This programme has been certified for its good practices since 2014 by the Fair Labor Association.
Volcom's Give Back Series program offers awareness projects and helps meet the needs of charitable organizations. Since its inception, the Give Back Series program has raised more than half a million dollars for our partner organizations and other non-profit community initiatives.
The Environmental Profit and Loss (EPL) tool enables Volcom to assess and track the costs of implementing environmental measures in their business practices and thus identify areas for improvement.
