Join Us For A Guided 3-Month Cohort Accelerator Experience
To Jumpstart Sustainability & Climate Action At Your Company

We’re excited to announce a new partnership with the Surf Industry Members Association (SIMA) to provide our members with crucial educational programming to address the gap in our industry between topical expertise and the real action needed to reduce emissions and effectively tackle climate change.

The Snow and Surf Industry Sustainability Sessions is a six-month guided online series for SIA members that will provide participants with the knowledge and specific tools they need to accelerate their company's leadership on the most pressing environmental issue facing our industry.

The program is led by Derek Sabori, the former VP of Sustainability at Volcom, and brands such as New Balance, Volcom, Billabong, RVCA, Quiksilver, Zumiez, and Blue Tomato have entrusted him to help train their teams on the fundamentals & essentials of sustainability and climate change in our industry. We're making the same educational programming available to SIA members for a discounted rate.

Program Details:

As a member brand, you’re invited to enroll up to three members of your team. This is a multi-industry, cross-functional cohort experience where we'll guide participants through 24 hours of on-demand learning content during the course of 12 virtual group meetup sessions. Enrolled participants will meet weekly as a group to gain knowledge, tackle questions, discuss learnings, and address business solutions.
