Arc’teryx is a high performance outdoor equipment company known for leading innovations in climbing, skiing and alpine technologies. The brand was established in 1989 by Dave Lane and Jeremy Guard under the name Rock Solid to realize their ideas of highly functional climbing equipment. Soon after, Lane sold his holdings of the company to silent partners. In 1991, Jeremy Guard changed the company’s name to Arc’teryx to reflect the brand’s vision to take the outdoor industry to the next level. The current goal of Arc’teryx is to use the best materials and develop high-quality, long-lasting products, accompanied by the philosophy of meeting the dependency on the environment with the utmost respect. Driven by design, community, science and passion, Arc’teryx is committed to halving its environmental footprint while increasing its positive impact on the social component of the production chain. For example, Arc’teryx is an early signatory to the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, a member of the Climate Action Corps of the Outdoor Industry Association, a co-founder of the Catalyst Business Coalition, and a company that has a verified science-based goal of creating low-carbon solutions. A big topic at Arc’teryx is the sustainability of the designs, which is noticeable both in the production and in the extension of the products, coupled with a timeless aesthetic of the designs.
