New Balance Steps Toward Circular

August 12, 2021

Since their beginnings in 1906, New Balance has followed their own path rooted in innovation, quality, and craftsmanship.  They have remained firm in their unwavering belief that making things matters and the people who make their products matter; New Balance also sees that how things are made matters.

New Balance is taking significant steps to ensure a healthier planet. They are constantly looking for ways to minimize and prevent negative environmental impacts in operations and throughout their global supply chain – with an eye towards zero impacts and bringing greater positive change.

New Balance is moving toward a low carbon future. Here are the four urgent actions set out in their climate strategy:

  • Renewable Energy: Increasing energy efficiency and promoting renewable energy within our operations and across our supply chain
  • Materials: Prioritizing materials with low climate impact
  • Longevity and Circularity: Exploring and supporting more circular business models like repair and post-consumer recycling
  • Advocacy: Engaging in climate advocacy and establishing a closer dialogue with our consumers

New Balance has also joined forces with the broader textile, apparel, and footwear industry to move toward a common commitment under the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action.  As a signatory, New Balance commits to a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and to drive toward net zero greenhouse gas emissions by no later than 2050.

Our partnership with New Balance supports their goal of longevity and circularity. The Renewal Workshop is so pleased to offer a New Balance Renewed collection. Grab your piece of this New Balance milestone now!
