This voluntary Sustainability Charter outlines the European Outdoor Group’s (EOG) understanding of what good corporate citizenship and responsibility entails.
There does not exist a single, unified, and globally recognised pre-defined path, tool or methodology to undertake this voluntary journey. This is particularly the case for a group of brands as diverse as those represented in the EOG. As a consequence, we encourage each member (and the outdoor industry as a whole) to establish what is the most suitable sustainability-related approach for each of them individually.
The voluntary EOG Sustainability Charter aspires to be a support and guidance for any such decisions.
It is therefore intended only as a guidance and help for the voluntary journey towards sustainable development that we encourage our members, and the outdoor industry at large, to undertake.
It is a matter of course that the EOG supports its members in their efforts, through a range of resources and means that are already in place for them to use and fall back upon.
Examples would be: a monthly newsletter, Q&A help desk for brands, timely updates on critical issues, educational opportunities such as webinars, or training and resource development opportunities at trade fairs.

EOG CSR & Sustainability Strategy
The EOG CSR & Sustainability Charter outlines the EOG’s aspiration and guidance of our everyday work.
We have further defined a number of focus areas and core values, in order to focus the EOG’s resources effectively. These were chosen following a combination of direct EOG member feedback and materiality assessment, and are based on the GRI framework and its schematic of breaking down 'sustainability' into operable topics.
