In business to save our home planet

At Patagonia, we appreciate that all life on earth is under threat of extinction. We’re using the resources we have - our company, our investments, our voice and our imagination - to do something about it.

Patagonia grew out of a small company that made equipment for climbers. Today Alpinism remains at the core of a global company that still manufactures clothing for climbing, but also for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, mountain biking and trail running. All these sports are silent, none need an engine, none gives you a rapturous round of applause. Everyone rewards you in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between people and nature.

With the climate crisis worsening, we fear that at some point we will no longer be able to experience these natural moments. That is why we fight for them. We donate our time, our work and at least 1% of our sales to help hundreds of environmental organisations around the world stay vigilant and protect the irreplaceable.

Answer with Action

For almost 40 years, Patagonia has supported grassroots groups working to find solutions to the environmental crisis.

But in this time of unprecedented threats, it’s often hard to know the best way to get involved. That’s why we’re connecting individuals with our grantees, in order to take action on the most pressing issues facing the world today.

Your winter. Your choice.

Powder days are worth protecting. Connect with local groups and fight the climate crisis from your own backyard.

Everyone has something to contribute. Patagonia Action Works can help maximise your climate fight and match your skills with the organisations that need them the most.

Protect Our Winters UK asks the nation’s outdoor community to take positive action to address the climate crisis and to help accelerate the transition to a carbon neutral society.

The last couple of years have been big on climbing news, from a variety of directions – some of them a little unexpected…

Top British all-rounder Emma Twyford hit the headlines, becoming the first British woman to climb a route graded 9a in difficulty with a redpoint of The Big Bang at Lower Pen Trwyn, North Wales. Emma's was only the third ascent of this route, first climbed in 1996, having repelled many strong climbers over the years. Emma also transferred this sport-climbing fitness and strength onto trad routes, notably climbing Chupacabra E8/9 6c at Huntsman's Leap in Pembroke, a bold and technical wall climb. Emma’s obviously on a roll, and will join us to give an insight into this year’s achievements and her plans.
