What if our customers could see everything we do?

Being transparent and opening our doors to our partners allows us to make more conscious decisions. This report is the result of our long-term commitment to build an ethical and sustainable business.

REPORT OVERVIEW

OUR GROWERS

In 1997, icebreaker became the first company in the world to establish long term contracts with key merino growers. They were based on genuine trust and a mutual concern for animal welfare and the environment.

Animal welfare

Guaranteeing the five key freedoms for our flock means you can feel happy in the knowledge that the sheep felt just as good making your icebreaker merino as you will wearing it.

Our product

Today, our business reflects our dedication to natural solutions. More than 84% of our global fabric composition is natural fiber and only 16% is man made.

OUR SUPPLY

icebreaker has maintained its transparency by developing a business based on close, long term relationships. We know exactly where our garments are being made. We take responsibility for the whole ecosystem.
