We are surfers, hikers, bikers, paddlers, sailors—lovers of outdoor spaces and we are inspired by the freedom those spaces provide. Stewardship of our natural environment is as important to us as the creation of new products and we purposefully make gear that lasts and can be easily repaired.
At Sea to Summit we invent gear that enables freedom and self-reliance in any environment—and we believe it is imperative that same environment be around for future generations of adventurers to enjoy. The meaningful steps we are making towards improving our environmental and social impact and our commitment to being transparent about our progress is the only way to guarantee we do our part in making that happen.
In acknowledging we can do better, we’ve begun increasing our understanding of how our actions as a brand impacts our global environment. This includes estimating our Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon emissions to further guide our actions in reducing our footprint.
RESPONSIBLE DOWN STANDARD (RDS)
100% of the down used in our sleeping bags and quilts is independently certified to the Responsible Down Standard (RDS). The RDS certifies down against animal welfare requirements and tracks it from the source to the final product.
The purchase of RDS certified products demonstrates demand for better animal welfare practices in the down and feather supply chain. Sea to Summit is certified to the RDS. Learn more about RDS here.
CARE FOR OUR PEOPLE
We support non-profits that preserve the places we play and that enable more people to get out and enjoy nature. We’ve had decade-plus relationships with many organisations; others are new to us—all are positively impacting people and the planet. These are some of the organisations we currently support:Leave No Trace
