Our declaration of intent for sustainability

A challenge that affects us all

OutDoor by ISPO is a platform that unites brands, retailers and consumers to shape a contemporary outdoor mindset. This aspiration includes awareness of the challenges currently facing the outdoor world. Our passion for nature brings with it a desire to preserve it for future generations. We at OutDoor by ISPO are determined to stand up for, promote and spread this attitude. We cannot and will not close our eyes to this. This is not about hollow phrases. Not about target groups or touchpoints. This challenge affects us all - every time we step outside. #challengeaccepted #workinprogress

#challengeaccepted

The outdoor world is full of challenges. Every mountain a call to climb. Every river a leap into the cold water. Every ramp, every trail, every path, every lake - and everything in between is an invitation to experience and rediscover our deep connection to nature as human beings. But in all the challenges we face in harmony with nature, there is one that threatens it all.

The beaches we surf, the mountains we climb and the air we breathe. The planet we feel so deeply connected to is in danger. Human thought and action is causing ecological destruction, inequality and discrimination.

Where our planet and our way of life are endangered by economics, consumption and inconsideration - we must not close our eyes. We are not about hollow phrases. Not about target groups or touchpoints. This challenge affects us all - every time we step outside. As a far-reaching network of nature lovers, we play a critical role in shaping how the outdoors is understood. That's why we're committed to not only recognizing the concerns of our environment, but actively addressing and advancing them.


Let's look at people as individuals and personalities.

Let's think up products that meet changing needs and thus actively shape our future.

Let us recognize the true price of our resources and reassess their social value.

Let's understand what an industry that protects this planet looks like.

Let us provide guidance and security in a complex world.

For a planet worth discovering.
