VOLCOM’S JOURNEY TO A NEW FUTURE BEGAN HUMBLY MORE THAN 12 YEARS AGO AND HAS CONTINUED TO EVOLVE EVER SINCE.
It’s an ongoing effort of turning sustainability commitments into actions with responsible manufacturing practices, better fiber sourcing, assessing our impacts, and meaningful give backs. One more way, that Volcom remains, True to This.

HEMP IS BACK IN A BIG WAY
Introduced in our trunks 10 years ago, hemp is back in a big way. Better fiber sourcing is an important priority in our sustainability strategy, and hemp, considered one of the oldest fibers to be used in textiles, contributes greatly to the portfolio and ongoing sustainability mission.
FAIR LABOR ASSOCIATION
In February of 2018, Volcom was officially voted in by the Fair Labor Association (FLA) as an accredited 'member;' an achievement Volcom has had its sights set on since 2014. It's a badge that sets the brand apart and recognizes the commitment and diligence that has been put into our social compliance program over the last twelve years.
Volcom is working with Textile Exchange to help ensure integrity in our supply chain thanks to their expertise in more sustainable fiber selection, animal welfare and product processing, and preferred fiber measurement and benchmarking. As a member of Textile Exchange and a Responsible Down 'Scope Certified Brand' we also contribute to the work they are doing to enhance and improve the Responsible Down Standard (RDS).
MORE THAN COMPLIANCE
Volcom’s P.A.S.S. (Product And Social Safety) program ensures our products are built responsibly and in compliance with the highest social and chemical regulatory practices; Robust audit protocol, purchasing policies and testing programs that go above and beyond what’s “just required.”
The Volcom Giveback Series™ continues to support and bring awareness to organizations meaningful to our stakeholders (that’s you, that’s us). Since its inception, the program has generated more than a half million dollars for our non-profit partners and other community initiatives.
