BUFF celebrates 30 years with renewed sustainability commitment
BUFF, the manufacturer of head and neckwear for anglers and other outdoor enthusiasts, is marking its 30th anniversary with a renewed commitment to sustainability.
The Spanish company is elevating its ‘Do More Now’ sustainability programme with a focus on social and environmental initiatives, building on a number of milestones achieved to date.
BUFF’s Barcelona factory is powered by 100% renewable energy and 90% of all manufacturing happens in-house, allowing more control over quality, environment and social standards.
In 2021/22, 79% of sales came from responsible materials, included recycled and natural materials, and by the end of last year the brand had recycled 33 million bottles to make sustainable products.
Now, looking ahead, BUFF is working to earn a B Corp certification awarded for high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and responsibility. The company is also committed to being carbon neutral by next year.
BUFF was founded in 1992 by Joan Rojas, who invented a seamless microfibre tube as a protective solution against the sun, wind and cold when touring on his motorcycle.
“Reflecting on the past 30 years, I am proud of our ability to grow while staying committed to choosing the responsible path,” said BUFF CEO David Camps, who has been with the company for more than 20 years. “These causes are near and dear to our hearts.”
