Patagonia’s Mission Statement
Our values reflect those of a business started by a band of climbers and surfers, and the minimalist style they promoted.
Becoming a Responsible Company
We can’t pose Patagonia as the model of a responsible company. We don’t do everything a responsible company can do. Here, we tell you how we came to realize our environmental and social responsibilities, and then began to act on them.
Our Business and Climate Change
The end of Patagonia’s mission statement reads: “… use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.” Climate change, a devastating symptom of human activity on Earth, is the very definition of this crisis we must overcome if we hope to survive.
