CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE OUTDOOR INDUSTRY

The $887 billion outdoor recreation industry is uniquely threatened by climate change. Outdoor brands are founded on the values of innovation and promoting environmental and social responsibility, putting us in a unique place to help work towards solutions.

WHY DOES CLIMATE CHANGE MATTER TO THE OUTDOOR INDUSTRY?

Climate change is having a direct impact on outdoor recreation. The quality of outdoor experiences are suffering as summers grow longer and hotter, winter and snowpack become more unpredictable, river flows are diminished, and devastating natural disasters become more frequent. We build products to enable more people to get outside. It is our duty to make sure that in sourcing, manufacturing and delivering these products, we do everything possible to minimize their impact on the environment.

HOW CAN THE INDUSTRY ENGAGE IN ACTIONS THAT CREATE MEANINGFUL CHANGE?

We must take action and advocate on climate policy at the state and federal level, while working together to address our impacts and develop sustainable supply chains and businesses.

ADVOCATE

Empowering outdoor businesses to address the threat of climate change is key through advocacy on climate policy at multiple levels of government.

REDUCE

Understanding the importance of products’ environmental footprint and supply chain sustainability is critical in building a comprehensive approach to climate action.
