In the nearly 100 years we’ve been here, much has changed. Now, it’s time for us to change too. We are advancing our Grand.36Ø Design & Engineering System—and focusing on finding innovative ways to make our products more sustainable, without compromising our reputation for performance, function, and craft.

It’s a process, but all great change starts with a few first steps to move forward.
Our garden is growing.

Since launching our first sustainable sneaker in the spring of 2022, our assortment of consciously crafted products has expanded. From performance and casual footwear, to bags and accessories, our Sustainable Collection delivers thoughtful and innovative design, engineered with a minimum of 25% naturally derived or recycled content by weight.
Cole Haan's mission to deliver sustainable innovation in our products
Our mission to deliver
Sustainable Innovation in our products.
The mechanics of the human body is the central focus of our Grand.36Ø Design & Engineering System and we are always looking for new ways our products can complement natural human performance. We call this “Natural Design.”

Now, our goal is to give “Natural Design” an enhanced meaning by actively seeking environmentally conscious naturally derived or recycled materials for many of our product components. And, for leather components, we are prioritizing responsible leather sourcing.

Every day at Cole Haan is a work in progress. We’re learning—and unlearning—with each step we take. We’re integrating this thinking into our everyday work. We’re actively seeking partners and suppliers who share our mission. And, we’re making breakthroughs as well as correcting any missteps along the way.
The steps we’re taking
to Change Forward™.
When you see the word SUSTAINABLE next to Cole Haan products, you’ll know there’s a minimum of 25% naturally derived or recycled content by weight in that product.

Some of our SUSTAINABLE products have much higher percentages of sustainable materials, and we will continue to look to do better. Here’s how:
As always, we will focus first on the consumer, the wearing occasion, and how we can bring differentiated performance to their lives. Our product creation team will concentrate on high performance, low impact design, and engineering. As we innovate solutions, we consider 360° design, engineering, and materials to fully realize everything we create. 1 2 3
There are four primary benefits we seek to deliver in our products:
Cole Haan's four primary benefits we seek to deliver in our products Natural Motion
Cole Haan's four primary benefits we seek to deliver in our products Responsive Cushioning
Cole Haan's four primary benefits we seek to deliver in our products Energy Return
Cole Haan's four primary benefits we seek to deliver in our products Breathability
We will start by asking ourselves how we can bring thoughtful simplicity to our design practices—making streamlined products with less ingredients and less impact in the first place.
Next, we will go to nature—seeking to include solutions and materials made or adapted from nature.
