CLIMATE POSITIVE BY 2030

Climate positive is a summit that very few companies are pursuing. Yet, if we don’t carve a new, bold path for our industry and others to follow, we will ultimately fail to protect the outdoor experience upon which we all depend.

With this, we’re announcing a new aspiration to become the world’s first climate positive industry by 2030. We chose an ambitious target because we believe we can reach this summit by working together, and we’re assembling resources to guide and support each step of the journey. We’ve grounded our definition of climate positive in work being done by climate experts and NGOs – and we’ll continue to evolve it over time:

Climate positive means to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions in line with a science-based target (SBT) that addresses all scopes, to remove even more GHG from the atmosphere than you emit, and to advocate for broader systemic change.

Climate Action Corps CoLabs

Impact CoLabs are targeted collaborations that OIA leads or partners on to help Climate Action Corps members work together to reduce emissions that are hardest to reach by one company alone.

OIA and five of its Climate Action Corps members –Patagonia, Burton, New Balance, REI, and W.L. Gore – are excited to initiate this study to help decarbonize the apparel and textile sector.

OIA's Drinkware CoLab helps drinkware suppliers reduce GHG emissions with less time, cost, and effort by prioritizing factories shared by Corps members.

OIA’s Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (VPPA) Aggregation CoLab is focused on helping Corps member companies source renewable energy for operations in the U.S. and Canada.

The Alternative Nylon CoLab helps brands look at the potential to scale up recycled nylon within their own business and the industry’s recycled nylon supply chain.

The Clean Energy Investment Accelerator CoLab helps support soft and hard goods suppliers in decarbonizing their factories.

The Carbon Leadership Project CoLab is focused on working together to reduce emissions across their shared supply chains.
