…Ski equipment is also helping to lead a sustainable revolution, myclimate, the Swiss non-profit foundation that set up the Climate Protection Partnership, helped the eco-entrepreneurial ski company, Grown Skis to develop and produce the first climate neutral skis to hit the market. These skis use local sustainable products and are produced locally in the Alps ensuring the carbon footprint is 40% lower than other comparable high quality skis. The remainder of the carbon footprint is offset with myclimate, Gold Standard, climate protection projects.

These initiatives have set the bar for future Olympic Games, other large-scale global events and the ski industry in general, demonstrating that it is possible to be carbon conscious and still run a successful business.
