A mission to protect our environment and global communities

Hunter has a deep connection to nature and a history rooted in conservation. For over 160 years, we've been making weather-resistant products that let you more freely experience the outside world, and we rely on the natural rubber we source from forests. We believe it's essential we do our part to protect our planet and the people affected by our activities, so that we can continue to share the outside world with future generations.


We continue to work towards having all our rubber footwear Forest Stewardship Council® Certified by 2025.

In 2022, we used 74 tonnes of FSC® certified rubber in our collections. In 2023, we will increase this to 207 tonnes.

In 2021 and 2022, through the World Land Trust, we will plant 1,000 trees per year in Malaysian Borneo and fund a ranger's annual salary.

In 2023, we will double that number to 2,000 trees and continue to cover the rangers' annual salaries.

The 2022 collection features 68% FSC® certified rubber, bloom algae and recycled textiles.

From spring/summer 2023, this is set to increase to 86%.

In 2021, we have committed to making 100% of our packaging recyclable.

In 2024, we commit to using 100% paper packaging that is not only recyclable, but also traceable from FSC certified or other sustainable sources, in line with our forest material sourcing policy.

Since 2019, we've recycled two tonnes of rubber footwear through Hunter Reboot, our boot collection and recycling program.

From the end of September 2022, Hunter Reboot (boot collection and recycling program) will be available in the US, UK and Japan, enabling more customers to recycle their rubber boots.

2022. We have measured our direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions and offset all direct emissions from our stores and offices globally.

We aim to set societal carbon reduction targets by 2023 and to sign up to the Science Based Targets by 2024, ensuring full accountability and transparency.

In 2022, we will conduct a global staff survey focused on diversity and inclusion, we have engaged an external organisation, EDUK, to analyse our programmes and advise on continuous improvement, and in September 2022 we will complete inclusive leadership training for all recruiters.

As part of our drive to build a culture where everyone feels respected and welcome, in 2023 we will implement an updated recruitment policy, strengthen our internal communications on D&I and conduct a gender pay gap analysis to maintain our commitment to pay equality.

Since 2012, we have donated over 186,000 pairs of functional footwear to charities around the world.

We plan to continue donating a minimum of 15,000 pairs of shoes per year, as well as making monetary donations to our global charity partners.


These commitments and our mission are guided by three main pillars that holistically shape what we make, how we make it, and what lies beyond. Read our Sustainability Report to learn more about how we keep our promises and work to drive positive change.
