“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 promotes sustainable and responsible consumption through the power of sport and adventure.
Companies in adventure and outdoor space 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 on climate change have tangible planetary and commercial impacts.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Extreme International has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
