The outdoor recreation industry and our customers are among the first to experience the impacts of climate change on outdoor recreation and our public lands. The active outdoor recreation industry, with companies founded on the values of environmental and social responsibility, is in a unique position to offer leadership on this important issue.

Outdoor Industry Association will work with policymakers to develop a comprehensive response to climate change that reflects the severity of the situation and accounts for the interests of the outdoor recreation industry.
