What Sustainability 
Means to Us

Sustainability is the capacity to fulfill the needs of those we serve without compromising the ability to meet the needs of future generations.

For Buffalo David Bitton, this means going beyond the manufacturing and sale of clothing and incorporating practices and policies that protect ecological and social resilience while maintaining economic prosperity, to promote long-term well-being for our community and for the planet.

OUR PRODUCTS - TRANSPARENCY

We here at Buffalo believe that transparency is a key aspect of sustainability. Providing our community with the most accurate information we have available is a cornerstone of our sustainability objective. Through a number of studies conducted by our partners, such as CMiA, we have been able to accurately model the environmental impact of a number of our products and stack them up against the industry standard. We can estimate that Buffalo products containing our partner's seals utilize 1,800 less liters of water, 30% less pesticides, and emit half the carbon over their lifecycle when compared to the industry standard.

The fashion industry as a whole relies on incredibly complex supply chain networks that often pass through regions where reporting standards are not adequate. This is why we can only estimate the overall impact. With that being said, Buffalo David Bitton and our partners are committed to acquiring the most accurate information available in order to pass it along to our community at large.
