“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.

HOW THE 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 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!).
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.
