We are carbon neutral.

Renoun is the first ski company in the world to offset 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. 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:

Measure

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.

Offset

We balance the mount of carbon we create by buying carbon credits. The value of credits are established by international agreements such as the Paris Climate Agreement (yes, that's what it was all about!).

Verify

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.

Reduce

We’re working on a Reduction Action Plan (RAP) to further reduce our emissions over the next 12-24 months.

What’s next.

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 you consume in your lifetime.

Up-Cycle

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 who you want to represent. There is a growing list of ski brands joining this movement. Season Eqpt, Icelantic and WNDR.
