We are going carbon neutral.
Renoun is the first ski company in the world to commit to offsetting all emissions related to our business.
Building skis is dirty business.
We love skiing as much (maybe more) than anyone but it’s time someone came clean about the truth behind building what we all love: building skis is terrible for the environment.
We’re going carbon neutral.
Renoun is the first ski company in the world to commit to going carbon neutral with Climate Neutral. The environmental impact of building a 'green' ski is actually worse than a normal pair — the final product has 'buzzworthy' traits, but the upstream environmental cost to create them is far greater. So, while we continue to make improvements to our manufacturing processes and pursue reductions in shipping, packaging, and sourcing, we’re taxing ourselves and offsetting every single pair. Yes, all of them.
How we do it:
You have to know where you are to know where you are going. First, we’re creating estimates of our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions which represent the entirety of our carbon footprint.
We balance the amount of carbon we create by buying carbon credits. Each credit is equivalent to avoiding or removing one tonne of carbon from the atmosphere.
Renoun works with Climate Neutral to verify and validates these offsets. This ensures we are held accountable by a third party so we know our offsets are legitimate and impactful.
We’re working on a Reduction Action Plan (RAP) to further reduce our emissions over the next 12-24 months.
Every ski is destined for the landfill, but as skiers, we all have the opportunity to make conscious decisions to get the most out of the products we choose to buy. We've committed to offsetting our carbon footprint and here’s what you can do to help:
Don't buy new skis
Ski yours for one more season. A good pair of skis should last at least 100 days on-snow. Choosing a high-quality ski can help reduce the total number of skis made for you in your lifetime.
If you do buy new skis, up-cycle and get $100 in Renoun credit (yes, it’s a bribe). Send us your old ones and we’ll give them to someone else to be re-used and avoid the landfill.
Choose Who You Support
From your food, to your car, to your skis, you choose what you value and who you want to represent. There are only 2 ski brands committed to going carbon neutral: us and this company.
