At Kathmandu, sustainability isn't a department, it's a way of doing things.
In the language of Te Reo Māori, to offer kaitiakitangi is to offer guardianship of the sky, land and sea. With our heart in New Zealand, we are always exploring ways to make our business a force for good. We believe in the planet and the future – caring for one means shaping the other.
Each year, we look back at our milestones in making a positive social and environmental impact, publishing these in an annual report.
