This Is How Sustainable Ski and Board Brands Produce

Sustainability - a topic that dominated ISPO Munich 2019. There is no textile manufacturer that does not deal with environmentally friendly or fair clothing production. But what about the hardware? has asked ski and snowboard manufacturers - with an interesting result.

At this year's ISPO Munich, PrimaLoft presented PrimaLoft Bio, the first synthetic insulation made entirely from recycled, biodegradable fibers, and also Holmenkol presented its first bio-certified and 100 percent biodegradable ski wax to a specialist audience. But hardware manufacturers still have to catch up.

However, the examples of ski manufacturers Dynafit, a brand of the OberalpGroup, and Nordica show that the first steps towards sustainable production have been taken. Interestingly, snowboard manufacturers such as Burton, Nitro and Capita are a whole board length ahead when it comes to sustainability. Capita even received the Energy Globe Award in 2017, the eco-Oscar among the international awards.
