Environmental

As a brand of the people and for the people, it is imperative we do our part for the planet on which we live.

​​We are committed to reducing our environmental impact by focusing on sustainability initiatives throughout our operations, supply chain and product lifecycle.

NET ZERO EMISSIONS BY 2030

Erasing the (already low) carbon footprint of every pair of shoes we make

Reducing Our Impact

Reducing our Emissions to Net Zero

Our inherently simple approach to design, the materials we use, and how our shoes are manufactured mean that our Classic Clog already has a low footprint. We are committed to establishing carbon reduction goals informed by Science Based Targets and doing our part to limit global warming.

Transitioning to Sustainable Ingredients

The ingredients used to create our products have a large impact on our carbon footprint. In addition to eliminating leather from our product line, we’re finalizing our approach to a more sustainable bio-based Croslite, the predominant material in our footwear.

Resource Use

Reducing Waste & Renewing Energy​

We continue to minimize our waste through recycling and have plans to transition to renewable energy within our offices, distribution centers, and factories.

Packaging

Minimizing the Impact of Packaging​

Our efforts to reduce packaging have resulted in the vast majority of Crocs shoes being sold without shoe boxes. We’re also exploring sustainable alternatives for other elements of our packaging.

Afterlife

Giving Our Shoes An Afterlife​

To keep shoes on feet and out of landfills, we donate thousands of pairs of unsold Crocs to those in need around the world. While we pursue a circular supply chain, we’re also working on ways to give your Crocs shoes a second life through consumer-led donations, recycling, and re-commerce programs.

afterlife

We have joined the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) and will be utilizing the Higg Index suite of tools for the purpose of baselining and establishing goals across Emissions, Energy Use, Water Use, and Waste Reduction/Disposal. This will encompass goals for both our internal brand activities as well as our factory partners.​
