Swix’ commitment to minimize the environmental impact of our products.
Through close cooperation with research and healthcare institutions, SWIX facilitates a healthy working environment and an environmentally focused culture.
From studies performed in wax cabins it has become evident that the amount of small particles is higher than earlier anticipated. The studies further show that CERA F powders create more small particles than the waxes. This has lead Swix to update our recommendations how to work in a wax cabin.
Research has been Swix' main focus since its inception in 1946, continuing the focus on the improvement and development of skiing. Along with the vision available to all, Swix offers world class products to skiers of all levels, recreational athletes as well as elite athletes. We are proud to guarantee non-toxic products that do not harm the environment.
At Swix Sport AS, we promote decent working and environmental standards in our supply chains. We cooperate closely with our suppliers and business partners in pursuit of this aim. Accordingly, we have prepared this code of conduct to illustrate what we expect of our suppliers and business partners. The code of conduct covers human rights, workers’ rights and the environment. Swix Sport AS is a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative Norway (ETI Norway), a membership organisation for private and public enterprises and organisations.
