Thanks to the commitment of all our teams and after several years of research, effort, successes and failures… Oxbow is now certified B Corp.
What does it mean? It means that Oxbow is a company that meets high standards of social and environmental performance, legal responsibility, and transparency.
A company committed to benefiting for all stakeholders: employees, customers, the community and the environment.
B CORP is more than a label, it is also a movement of companies with a positive social and environmental impact. A global movement in favor of a more inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy.
Becoming B Corp certified is a key step in our transformation, but it is not an end in itself.
We still have a long way to go and many projects to carry out.
Together, let’s try to be the best for the world and not the best in the world
To reduce the environmental impact of our products, we relocated a part of our production to Europe and France.
This is a first step and a way of showcasing local know-how, which is sometimes forgotten after years of relocation.
At the same time, for several seasons we have been looking at alternatives to conventional materials such as GOTS cotton, Yulex and Repreve.
Our approach results in a selection of products based on their environmental, social and health aspects.
