Step One: Join The ClimateUnited Pact

Before we do anything, let’s first unite and align

Open to every winter outdoor business, the ClimateUnited Pact signals that our industry is united and focused on what matters, tackling climate change at the speed and scale it demands.

SIA’s ClimateUnited Pact

As a winter outdoor industry, we are publicly formalizing our commitment and building unity with our peers to address climate change and signal our commitment to a zero-carbon emissions future. We will make best efforts to address the following principles:
  • Recognizing
    that our industry contributes to the climate crisis, and are therefore publicly addressing climate change as a top management priority for our business
  • Leveraging
    our influence to drive systemic change by advocating for state, federal and international climate policy
  • Focusing
    our best efforts to meet the science-based targets: reducing our emissions 50% by 2030 and becoming 100% zero-carbon emissions before 2050
  • Committing
    to work with our supply chain partners to meaningfully reduce emissions from product manufacturing and transportation
  • Aligning
    our business strategy with climate science, integrating positive climate impact in our corporate values and mission, investment portfolio, consumer marketing and product R&D
  • Sharing
    progress with SIA annually, to enable aggregated recognition of our industry’s progress and inspire more businesses to join us
