In late 2019, we will publish our Sustainability Roadmap with a series of milestones across key areas of the organization with the goal of reducing the company’s footprint. The strategy, anchored by innovation, will leverage advanced technologies as well as explore new materials and alternative business models. It’s a long-term commitment, and we look forward to sharing more in the coming months and years ahead.
Bally is also a proud member of the first-ever Fashion Pact, joining a global coalition of fashion and textile companies committed to safeguarding the planet. By targeting practical science-based objectives, the Fashion Pact will combat the industry's adverse effect on the climate, restore biodiversity and protect the oceans.
Bally is proud of its product craftsmanship, working closely with its suppliers to ensure long-term relationships and excellence in quality. Demonstrating a departure from disposable fashion, Bally offers a renewal service whereby customers worldwide can turn in select shoes for repairs and resoling, extending the product lifecycle.
Our Supply Chain
In compliance with the European Union’s REACH legislation, Bally requires its suppliers to sign a Restricted Substances list as well as comply with its own company Code of Conduct. Bally is committed to supply chain traceability and accountability, mapping its supply chain at Tier 1 and Tier 2 levels and auditing these facilities on both environmental and social standards, conducted by third party partner, Bureau Veritas.
Bally takes pride in the company’s Swiss tradition. The company has its own employee code of conduct called The Bally Way; a set of principles developed on the core values of collective entrepreneurship, meaningfulness and high performance. Testament to Bally’s care for its workforce, some employees have worked at Bally’s production facility in Switzerland for more than 40 years.
Bally has a strong history of community engagement, rooted in its Swiss origins. Bally’s philanthropic efforts are focused on promoting the arts and preserving extreme mountain environments. In 2007, The Bally Foundation was founded to cultivate emerging artists through its "Artist of the Year" program. In 2019, Bally launched Peak Outlook, an ongoing environmental conservation initiative.
