Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

Carbon footprint of raw materials.

How We'll Reduce It

We will reduce by selecting materials and manufacturing processes that have lower carbon footprints.

02

What We’re Reducing

Through partnership with our factories we plan to reduce the amount of waste in cutting thereby lowering our overall carbon footprint.

How We'll Reduce It

We will analyze the markers made on our highest volume styles. We will use this analysis to find specific changes to the cutting process or to the marker making that will reduce overall material consumption and waste.

Other Sustainability Notes

As we have seen our snowpack, winters and overall climate shift over the past 30 years, we believe that informed decisions and hard work can help reduce our environmental impact so that the snow is just as deep for our grandkids as it is for us. Using specific and accurate tools and info, we have measured our impact on the environment and are actively using this data to identify alternatives and drive future development decisions. We're proud of the work we've done, but we know there is no finish line and that this is a long journey. Recently, we've challenged ourselves to do more, and to do it faster, so we've partnered with Climate Neutral to offset our past carbon and to reduce our future carbon footprint.
