July Update: COVID-19 and the Climate Action Corps

Dear Climate Action Corps members + prospective members,

To date, more than 80 outdoor industry companies have joined the Climate Action Corps and new companies are joining each week. You joined (or are considering joining) the Climate Action Corps because you believe that climate change poses an existential threat to the outdoors, our communities and to our industry. You share the vision that a world where our operations and supply chains are as energy efficient as possible; powered by clean, renewable energy; using low-carbon materials and processes; and driven by circular business models will ensure that our natural playgrounds and our businesses thrive for generations.

We’re here for you when you and your teams are ready to pick back up on the critical work of climate action. Below are some of the steps we are taking to help you continue to participate in the Climate Action Corps at a pace that works best for you and your organization.
