THE "GREEN" IN GALVIN GREEN

PRODUCTS THAT LAST

We believe in a holistic approach to sustainability and our work on this subject is an ongoing process here at Galvin Green. It’s in our DNA to introduce new, cutting-edge technologies to maximize the golfer’s performance; while, at the same time, seeking to minimize social and environmental impact. Whenever possible, we choose sustainable textile production methods, fabrics and labels. But equally important is to offer reliable, long-lasting comfort that creates a relationship with the player. Garment lifespan is a cornerstone of our product development, and we see how our well-designed products often become favourites that continue to be worn by golfers time and again.

SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS SHOW THE WAY

We are gradually expanding our range made from certified and third-party approved materials to improve the environmental footprint throughout the supply chain. The task is being made easier as more fabric suppliers meet higher environmental standards and help us deliver the best garments possible for today’s golfers and future generations.

- All GORE-TEX products are made from Bluesign® approved materials.
- All INSULA™ products are made from Bluesign® approved materials and. feature garments made from recycled plastic bottles.
- All VENTIL-8™ PLUS pants are made from Bluesign® approved materials.
- All garment labels are made from Bluesign® approved materials.
- All hangers and plastic bags are made from recycled plastic.
- Our VENTIL8™ PLUS shirt programme i made with OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 approved fabrics.

SUSTAINABILITY TO US IS DEFINED BY LONG-LASTING COMFORT.
WE MAKE DURABLE, WELL-DESIGNED QUALITY GARMENTS THAT CREATE A RELATIONSHIP WITH
THE PLAYER - THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME

Our first bluesign collaboration was with W.L Gore & Associates, with whom we have a long standing relationship incorporating the unrivalled GORE-TEX® laminate across our line of waterproof jackets and trousers. The criteria is very stringent in terms of the amount of water and electricity used in the process of manufacturing fabrics, as well as the addition of chemicals approved in the European Union or authorised worldwide. Bluesign® inspectors conduct comprehensive audits at textile factories to verify compliance.

For the first time in 2021, we have adopted Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification to the VENTIL8™ PLUS shirt collection. The globally recognised label certifies that each component in the shirts – every thread, button, zipper and other accessory – has been independently tested for harmful substances and that the item is completely safe in human ecological terms.

The eco generation INSULA™ is a range of warming, mid layer garments made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Look for recycled polyester in the quality field under the product information tab on the product page.

BUSINESS THAT LASTS

Well aware that a long-term sustainable business requires more than durable and eco-friendly products, we work purposefully to create the right conditions for a viable business. This means taking financial responsibility, so that we have the right level of profitability and growth to enable us to invest in equipment, employees, customers and suppliers. It also involves taking corporate social responsibility for the people who create value for the company – all the way along the supply chain via our own employees, to distribution and retail partners.

For a long-term sustainable business to thrive commercially, socially and environmentally, we are mutually dependent on well-functioning collaborations where we and our partners push each other constantly to move forward. We do not believe in taking a hard-line, but prefer to establish trusting partnerships, where we make continuous progress together.

LASTING RELATIONSHIPS

Since Galvin Green was founded more than 30 years ago, good relationships have been in focus. The owner realised early on that a well-functioning and profitable business is based on cooperation, trust and transparency. So, since the beginning Galvin Green has put a lot of effort into making employees, customers and suppliers feel included and motivated. It has also ensured that partners have reasonable terms for cooperation, so they can also develop their businesses and be in step with Galvin Green. No-one benefits from partners feeling disadvantaged or being unable to cope. The philosophy is that everyone who creates value, will also benefit from the value created. With this approach, relationships will flourish and last..

SUSTAINABLE GOLF INNOVATION PARTNER

In November 2021, we became a strategic partner of the GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf as a further step to influence and speed up the progress of sustainability in and through golf. The values and ambitions of GEO Foundation and the Sustainable Golf agenda are music to our ears and so we are very happy to work alongside the organisation as an Innovation Partner.
