Extreme International, drivers of positive change through extreme and adventure sports, has achieved Planet Mark certification. This is Extreme International’s third year of business carbon footprint reporting and certification to Planet Mark. It has calculated the carbon footprint of its global operations for the year ending December 2021.
Achieving Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.
Over the next year, the company will be working towards measuring and reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.
“It’s a pleasure to certify Extreme International to Planet Mark. The brand is iconic, associated with so many successful sports and events that celebrate the world we live in. Making a commitment to our planet is a natural step, and one that many of the company’s customers and ambassadors will no doubt celebrate. Extreme is aware of the challenges faced in the face of climate change, and their commitment to develop and grow as sustainable leaders is inspiring.”
Extreme is passionate about leaving a positive legacy. Extreme accepts the challenge to learn, improve and do its part to safeguard the future for the generations to come. As well as its Planet Mark certification, Extreme has committed 1% of its annual revenue to environmental non-profit organisations that are creating a more sustainable future for all. It is also committed to the United Nations “Sports for Climate Action” which commits the company to raise awareness about climate change and promote sustainable and responsible consumption through the power of sport and adventure.
Companies in adventure and outdoor spaces have a huge opportunity to gain from climate action. The industry directly relies on the landscapes and natural beauty our planet provides. Moreover, the industry’s customers are likely to be closely connected to those very landscapes. Thus making bold and decisive commitments to climate change have tangible planetary and commercial impacts.
To recertify next year Extreme International must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
