Exploring how outdoor industry brands and suppliers can work together to reduce emissions across global supply chains and take advantage of low-carbon opportunities

As we build out the OIA climate toolkit, we are exploring new and existing projects and programs around renewable energy procurement and carbon reduction to help support outdoor industry companies with their climate strategies and goals. This session will provide a brief overview of the OIA climate program followed by presentations of potential programs designed to help support scope 3 reduction efforts.
