Named for one of the harshest environments on earth, and with more than thirty years of experience designing gear to stand up to harsh conditions, we don’t want them getting any harsher. That’s why we’re working hard to reduce our environmental impact and find new ways to help make a positive change.

ISO 14001

This is the internationally agreed upon environmental management system and sets the standard that companies must achieve. It comprises five core elements: environmental policy, planning, implementation and operation, checking and corrective action, and management review.



Renewable Energy

Arktis is committed to protecting our communities, local and global. We paid to ensure that our Exeter HQ is powered by 100% renewable energy with Haven Power.

Recycled packaging

While our gear is designed to last for decades, we don’t want our packaging doing the same. All products shipped by Arktis are sent recycled and recyclable plastics.

Recycled plastics

Nearly half of the world’s clothing is made using Polyester, with that expected to rise by 50% by 2030. However, as Polyester is derived from crude oil, it’s not a sustainable option for manufacturers in the long term.

To help tackle this problem, Arktis has access & can use recycled Polyester to produce garments.

Also known as rPET, recycled Polyester is produced by melting down plastics and respinning them into Polyester fibre. Our D010 hoodie, for example, is made up of 15% rPET, the equivalent of about five plastic bottles.
