About Climate Neutral Certification

Wherever you see the Climate Neutral Certified label, it means the company is accountable for its greenhouse gas emissions. To earn the label, a company must annually measure cradle-to-customer emissions, implement specific action plans to reduce emissions, and invest in high quality, verified carbon credits.

The certification requirements are detailed in the rigorous, peer-reviewed Climate Neutral Certified Standard. Each company’s application is reviewed for compliance by Change Climate’s certification team.

Description

Projects that reduce the risk of deforestation in important forest ecosystems.

There's no way getting around the fact that building a snowboard affects our environment. That's why sustainability is one of the cornerstones. Getting certified as climate neutral is one of many steps we've made to improve ours. Aside from offsetting our carbon footprint, longevity of product life and repairability comes an important second. Most of the climate-affecting energy consumption used for producing a snowboard is gone when you need to scrap it. That's why we almost over-engineer our boards and use repairable materials, extra thick edges, bases and top sheet materials and durable hardwoods, like ash in all of our cores. Our 4-year warranty is testament to the trust we put in to our snowboards and splitboards. We want our boards to die of old age so the longer you can ride it the better it is.
