REDUCING TAKES PRECEDENCE OVER OFFSETTING

REDUCING TAKES PRECEDENCE OVER OFFSETTING

Our goal is to significantly reduce our emissions and offset those that remain. And we’re going to achieve this a year before our previously set date: ORTOVOX will be completely climate-neutral by 2023. But that is by no means the end of the process! We are continuously working to reduce our carbon footprint in all areas: Reducing emissions has priority over offsetting them!

OUR GOAL

CLIMATE-NEUTRALITY AND REDUCTION
OF EMISSIONS ON-SITE AND ALONG
THE SUPPLY CHAIN.

STATUS QUO

WINTER 21/22
Our Freeride and Swisswool collections are completely climate-neutral.

SUMMER 22
Our collection is completely climate-neutral.

WINTER 22/23
The entire ORTOVOX collection is climate-neutral.

OVER 150,000 mountain athletes are now equipped with a climate-neutral ORTOVOX product.

CHALLENGE

80% of ORTOVOX’s footprint is produced along the supply chain – and that’s one thing above all: complex. Initiating and implementing sustainable production right down to the deeper levels of manufacture is an enormous undertaking. It requires a lot of detailed work and intense cooperation with our producers – and solidarity with other manufacturers. Together we can achieve so much more!

DECARBONIZATION
PROJECT

A new and exemplary cooperation: As part of the European Outdoor Group (EOG), we have potential savings of 60–70% along the supply chain across all brands, which we can identify and optimize as a community.

CONSTANT REFLECTION

CALCULATING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT AND CONTINUOUS OPTIMIZATION

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION PROJECTS

Until recently, we donated €3 to the Narcissi Valley project in Ukraine for every package that was not returned. The valley is not far from our factories. The responsible body is the non-profit organization “Danube-Carpathian Programme”, based in Lviv. Due to the current situation in Ukraine, we promptly decided to donate these funds monthly to humanitarian aid instead. The donation amount for the Narcissi Valley project will remain untouched but frozen for the time being.
