Sustainability

The practice of nautical sports educates us to protect our playing fields by reviewing our consomption et by being more mindful about our planet.

The Saint Jacques team has always been conscious of the neoprene's impact on the natural environment. We have looked for a way to re-locate our production, in vain. As a concession, we are centralising most of our processes in our premises in Montpellier and we work with local and national actors as much as possible. From research to development, including designs, tests, communication, after-sales service, etc. 

Since 2016, Saint Jacques includes the environment protection in its strategy and always looks for the best solutions. We are not perfect but we are willing to improve our influence. 

ECO-FRIENDLY WETSUITS

In 2023, we launch our new range of wetsuits : BIO II. This bio-sourced rubber sponge, approved by the USDA biobased, is made from renewable raw materials such as oyster shells and sugar cane. It is 100% neoprene-free and offers excellant performances in terms of flex, warmth and durability.
