Patagonia and Sustainability

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Sunday, December 31, 2017/Categories: wildlife conservation, sustainability, art and design, environment, Archive Pick of the Week

Many long-time customers of the outdoor clothing company, Patagonia, appreciate the Company's approach to quality products and an ethic of working towards building  sustainability  into their business practices. The Company has now embarked on a venture assisting homeowners in Hawaii to generate their own solar power and thereby reducing imported oil and carbon pollution in the Islands. In announcing the new initiative, Patagonia's CEO said:

"Any U.S. public or private company who pays their fair share of taxes can use this strategy to speed up the development of new energy infrastructure and they can make money at the same time."

Under a program Patagonia established the $20 Million & Change Fund solar installations will be offered to Hawaiian homeowners at no cost. They will be charged a monthly fee for the energy generated but this will be less than half their current utility bill expenses. Like so many of the other initiatives the Company has undertaken, this new solar project will likely prove a success as well. This is putting the concept of building sustainability into direct business practice. If you're in the market for some winter clothing, one the outdoor outlet might be worth a bit of shopping.
