Identifying, Creating and Sharing Sustainability Stories From Within Your Brand

Today’s winter outdoor industry consumers are asking what brands are doing in the areas of sustainability and climate change. What you share and the tone you use can go a long way toward establishing authenticity and credibility. Salomon learned this in recent years as it began to weave sustainability topics into more of its consumer-facing brand stories via creative content, athletes and product development.

“Carbon Reporting: Are we ready, where do we start?”

So we’ve talked about the why, we know the time is now, and you’ve laid some groundwork, but we can’t improve upon what we don’t measure. It’s time to quantify. What’s your carbon footprint? What’s the difference between Scope 1, 2, and 3? What’s required to undertake a carbon assessment, and is your team ready?

“Climate Justice and Climate Action “

Not all climate impacts are created equal, or distributed equally. From extreme weather to rising sea levels, the effects of climate change often have disproportionate effects on historically marginalized or underserved communities. As we look towards solutions, we must recognize those most affected by climate change and include their experience and expertise in how we move forward, providing just and equitable opportunities for all. Join us for a discussion that opens up the dialogue we all need to be having as we all move forward on our climate journey.
