Quiksilver exists to inspire people by sharing the stoke of surfing while preserving the future of our playgrounds, the mountain and the wave.

Our Journey

As a brand, and as individuals, we’ve always had a deep connection with nature and the people who design, make, sell, and use our products. And this is how we see sustainability; a balance of respect for people and planet.

We recognize our role as leaders in the boardriding community and are committed to sustainable progress at every level. That’s why we developed a long-term strategy that’s in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals; a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.”

From our backyard to the open oceans, we aim to lead the charge in keeping our playgrounds safe and healthy for everybody to enjoy.

Playgrounds

As individuals, we have the power to make better choices. As a community, the sum of our choices can drive real change. We’re here to inspire our tribe and influence our industry.

People

Whether it’s the services we provide, the goods we make or the ideas we bring to life, we strive to incorporate environmental and ethical practices into everything we do.

Sustainability isn’t a fad for us. Over the past twenty years, it’s become a part of our DNA and is ingrained into the fabric of our operations and decision-making. We wouldn’t be able to confidently commit to our future targets without the work we’ve done in the past. Here are a few things we’re proud of:

2020

Repreve 200M Bottles Award

So far, we’ve recycled over 200 million bottles and turned them into useful products. That number’s only going up.

Repreve Partnership

We incorporated recycled plastic into even more of our products, including 50% of our outerwear. We also partnered with Repreve, giving us full transparency and confidence in the sourcing of our recycled materials.

2018

2014

Bottles To Boardshorts

By the end of 2014, 80% of our boardshort range already relied on post-consumer recycled plastic bottles to create the fabric, drastically reducing our footprint in this category.

2012

Green Campaign

Created to inspire change, from internal employees to boardriders across the world. Over three years, we raised and donated nearly half a million dollars for clean water initiatives like Reef Check, Surfrider Foundation and Coeur de Forêt.

2010

Eco Campus Designed

The type of place you want to work. Our global headquarters features award-winning environmentally friendly architecture, is plastic-free and, frankly, feels like a treehouse. It’s good for the planet, and for our employees.

Product Life Cycle Assessment

Sustainability doesn’t end at the factory. In 2008, we began to measure the long-term environmental impacts of the products we create, from cradle to grave.

2008

2004

The Quiksilver Foundation

A philanthropic endeavor made to make people smile. And to make the earth smile, too. The foundation benefits more than 60 environmental, educational and health and wellness-related programs worldwide.

HQ Environmental Certification

Our European headquarters met the ISO 14001 criteria to become certified for effective environmental management of performance, compliance, and objectives.

2003

2000

Sustainability Initiative

At the turn of the millennium, we created our first environmental department. The team looked at all areas of our business to find more sustainable ways to do everything.

1999

The Crossing

A 7-year pioneering mission to collect reef health data for environmental protection causes — and, yep, we scored waves.

Our Progress

Sustainability doesn’t have a finish line, and we’re committed to continuous progress. While the journey may be long, we’re getting better at each step along the way. Constantly learning, always evolving, always improving.
