We are dedicated to keeping our precious planet healthy, our community thriving, and our athletes dialed in and performing at their peak. Our mission to becoming a more sustainable business without compromising quality starts with our internal practices and extends to the work we’re doing to protect the environment. We have big ambitions, and always plan to remain transparent in our efforts.
JOURNEY TO ZERO.
By 2031 we will have eliminated the use of virgin fossil fuel-based plastic, eliminated manufacturing waste, reduced material usage, minimized our office waste and divert it from landfills.
At BOA, we started our formal journey four years ago with an initial concentration on sustainability efforts to dramatically reduce overall material usage and waste in our products, packaging, and global facilities. Additionally, we focused on quickly shifting to more sustainable materials and processes. We are pleased with the progress we’ve made so far, as outlined in the 2021 Impact Report, and want to share the good news that we’re on track for further reductions in 2022.
One of the ways we’re eliminating waste and increasing the use of recycled and renewable sourced material is through a process called Regrind.
The majority of our products are manufactured using plastic injection molds. Throughout this process, there is a percentage of material that is considered waste – it doesn’t make its way into the final product. To reduce our waste, we take that excess material, break it down, and combine it back into our products.
Support organizations that focus on all facets of protecting and improving our planet.
We partner with non-profits and businesses that are making an impact on our environment, how it’s treated, and the future of our land. We are proud to provide financial support and volunteer for Protect Our Winters, the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, and the Outdoor Industry Association.
POW helps passionate outdoor people protect the places and lifestyles they love from climate change.
Colorado Fourteeners Initiative protects and preserves the natural integrity of Colorado’s 54 14,000–foot peaks —the “Fourteeners”— through active stewardship and public education.
The Outdoor Industry Association works with members and key stakeholder groups to move the needle in key focus areas of outdoor recreation and trade policy, sustainable business innovation and outdoor participation.
