5.11’s roots are in Yosemite National Park, where Royal and Liz Robbins began designing purpose-built apparel for the climbing community scaling iconic landmarks like El Capitan and Half Dome. They also had a deep respect for our environment as advocates of climbing techniques that left little or no damage to the rocks they climbed. Today at 5.11, we do our best to carry on their vision through our product designs, manufacturing processes, quality control, and environmental mindfulness. Our fabric and component suppliers have been inspected and certified to the ISO 140001 standard and/or bluesign® approved. Meeting these standards means that our suppliers have effective environmental and waste management systems in place to reduce their impacts on the environment. In addition, our leather suppliers are certified under the Leather Working Group (LWG). Leather manufacturing can have a significant adverse impact to the environment due to the chemicals involved in the tanning process. Being LWG certified, however, signifies that our leather suppliers have robust environmental management systems in place and the hides they source can be traced back up the supply chain to the original hide processors. We opened a new, state-of-the-art, LEED-certified facility in Manteca, California in 2018. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is issued by the U.S. Green Building Council. It is a globally recognized symbol of achievement for sustainable building. We are proud of our achievement in being LEED certified and continue to seek processes that reduce consumption and avoid the inefficient use of resources. Our Custom Shop invested in a sophisticated water reclamation system for our screen-printing operations. Since purchasing the reclamation system, the amount of water required for our screen-printing operations has been reduced and we estimate that we will save approximately 62,000 gallons of water per year.
