At Galvin Green, sustainability isn't just a recent endeavour, but a long-standing commitment that's been integral to our premium golf apparel brand for over thirty years. Over time, our sustainability initiatives have evolved into six key categories, each representing core aspects of our identity as a sustainable technical apparel brand within the world of golf. With a focus on technology, sourcing, relationships, and forward-looking plans, these categories define our comprehensive approach to creating a golf brand that's in harmony with both the present and the future.



  • Office improvements: electric car charging, solar panels, comprehensive recycling
  • Health and wellness subsidies for staff
  • Carbon footprint reduction initiatives

The Galvin Green sustainability mission is centred around a company-wide integrated approach — ensuring all of our departments contribute to moving forward with our goals. These include creating an equitable workplace for all of our staff, making our offices efficient and low impact, and taking a responsible financial approach to our business. Financial responsibility over the long-term is prioritised over shorter term wins, creating more stability for our staff and stakeholders. Employee benefits, including a health and wellness subsidy, and other company initiatives contribute to meaningful change, while ensuring our staff can thrive. With all departments committed to improving their sustainability practices, we've seen positive changes made across the company.



  • Balanced production & use of remnant materials
  • Use of sustainable materials
  • Standardised product testing
  • Well-known testing standards and certifications for which we stay up to date
  • Recycled packaging materials and limited use of tape

At Galvin Green, we harness historical data and use advanced forecasting techniques to ensure the precision of our garment production orders. By refraining from over-ordering, we actively reduce waste and enhance operational efficiency. We also collaborate with suppliers that incorporate innovative methods that reduce water consumption, streamline waste management, and create materials ideally suited for high-tech performance apparel.

Our testing ensures select products meet the requirements within and outside the EU, and we use standardised, transparent methods to demonstrate this. Garments with components that have bluesign® and OEKO-TEX certifications are marked as such in their product description on our webstore. We proudly offer a range made from recycled materials, and most leftover fabrics are utilised in our Upcycled Collection. Our logistics teams use intelligent, tape-free, and recyclable packaging solutions.



  • Long-lasting clothing and durable materials
  • Timeless designs
  • Repair centre
  • Promoting product care

Product durability is one of the most important attributes of Galvin Green clothing, and a source of immense pride. As a premium brand, customers rightfully anticipate quality and durability when investing in our apparel, and our mission is to deliver excellent value. Careful material selection which has undergone rigorous testing, plus advanced construction techniques are part of our dedication to longevity. Our timeless designs can be worn for years, or even decades, bolstered by our commitment to aftercare. We promote and encourage proper product care and maintain an in-house repair centre to assist customers in extending the lifespan of their garments. Excellent customer reviews and retailer feedback are a testament to our exceptional customer satisfaction.



  • Technological solutions to reduce e-commerce returns rate
  • CLO 3D software revolutionises prototyping
  • Use of high-tech fabric testing methods

As a high-tech apparel brand, Galvin Green leverages cutting-edge technology during product development — including material production, garment construction, supply chain optimisation, and beyond. Each fabric and garment component is selected based on its functionality and attributes, with our product development team spanning the globe to secure some of the most advanced and responsible materials available. The product development teams have reduced the number of prototypes being developed by using CLO, a 3D design software for the apparel industry. Membership of the ChemAct Network allows us to identify hazardous chemicals and manage legal requirements for our products. Recent e-commerce developments, including high-tech sizing software and the use of a digital customer review platform, has enabled us significantly reduce our returns rate. Our pioneering developments and unwavering commitment to sustainability earned us recognition at the 2021 Sports Technology Awards when Galvin Green was the first golf company to secure the Sustainability in Sport award.



  • Close, long-lasting relationships with suppliers
  • Supplier agreements and evaluations
  • Teko & Textilimportörerna memberships
  • Transparency with suppliers
  • Code of conduct

Establishing long-lasting, transparent relationships is a priority at Galvin Green. Recognising the substantial costs and productivity setbacks associated with supplier and staff turnovers, we take immense pride in nurturing long-lasting connections with all our stakeholders. We are dedicated to fostering transparent and honest relationships with our suppliers, many of whom have grown with us over the years. Our suppliers conduct social audits upon request and have to comply with all of the laws of their production countries as well as the requirements of Galvin Green’s Code of Conduct. Our supplier agreement now includes a Restricted Substances List, which prohibits the use of any banned or unsafe chemicals and materials in our production process or finished products. We encourage an open dialogue for collaborative problem-solving. Other partnerships, such as the GEO Foundation (an international non-profit entirely dedicated to helping accelerate sustainability in and through golf), demonstrate our commitment to sustainability, both as a company and within the golf industry.



  • Introduce new materials eligible for re-use and recycling
  • Continue expanding the amount of sample-tested and certified components
  • Implement the 3 chosen UN Global Goals throughout the company

As both the brand and the company evolve, Galvin Green remains steadfast in its commitment to sustainability and innovation. The longevity, reuse options, and recyclability of new materials significantly influence our selection process during product development and we intend to enhance this over time. Rapid developments in garment recycling and end-of-lifecycle alternatives impact our product development processes — and we are building collections with the knowledge that the options to recycle them will soon be rolled out. Ongoing projects to introduce new materials, phase out harmful substances, and optimising our distribution are key initiatives aimed at building a more sustainable and responsible future. We've chosen to work with 3 of UN's Global Goals (SDGs) and we're looking to integrate them throughout the company during the upcoming years.


In November 2021, we proudly solidified our role as a strategic partner with the GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf. This collaboration puts us into the forefront of advancing sustainability within the sport. Aligned seamlessly with our values and aspirations, we are excited to stand as an Innovation Partner alongside GEO Foundation.
