A Powerful Force for Meaningful Change

Our industry faces bigger issues than selling products and capturing market share: Tackling climate change, balancing trade policy, and increasing outdoor participation. Protecting and growing the outdoors and the outdoor industry requires collaboration, not competition. By tapping our brain trust and pooling our combined resources, we can create meaningful change.

Sustainable business is the business of asking, “how can we do this better?” We are proud to promote the welfare of people, animals and resources involved in manufacturing outdoor products, from raw materials to end of life. We don’t have all the answers, and we’re not shying away from asking the questions.

From recreation access to balanced trade, the issues that affect our businesses and our customers are constantly on the dockets of local, state and federal state houses.

We come from different backgrounds; work in different, sometimes competing, channels of the industry and find different ways to play outside. But we are all outdoorists, and we are committed to growing the outdoorist collective. By working together to expand outdoor access and opportunities, we can ensure a vibrant outdoorist community for generations to come.
