It is Fair Wear’s belief that member companies who are making a serious effort to implement the Code of Labour Practices—the vast majority of Fair Wear member companies—are ‘doing good’ and deserve to be recognized as such. They are also doing more than the average clothing company, and have allowed their internal processes to be examined and publicly reported on by an independent NGO. The majority of member companies will receive a ‘Good’ rating.

Since the company was founded in 1980 in the south of Munich, ORTOVOX has stood for a sophisticated protection and comfort system for the mountains, characterized by the responsible treatment of people and nature. As pioneers in the avalanche safety field, we have played a key role in the development of emergency equipment for mountain sports. Since 1988, mountain sports apparel made with wool has enhanced the ORTOVOX product range. As wool experts, we have developed a wear comfort system from the first to the third layer that offers the highest functionality, protection and comfort in the mountains through an intelligent combination of natural material with other innovative fibers. Sustainable management is the hallmark of all of our entrepreneurial endeavors. Commitment to safe and fair working conditions is just as important to this as dedication to the wellbeing of the sheep and the environmentally friendly manufacture of our products. With the ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE (OWP), ORTOVOX developed its own wool standard to represent the highest standards of animal welfare and sustainable economic management. Go to website
