CSR & Sustainability

We are striving for an industry that is climate neutral, free from harmful chemicals, responsibly using resources, discharging safe emissions, and maintaining ethical supply chains.

View Department Contacts

We educate, provide opportunities to make an impact, represent the industry and mitigate risk, respond to our members needs, and cultivate CSR networking opportunities.

The European Outdoor Group prioritises and drives work in key sustainability areas to collectively accelerate global change.
At the highest level, investment in CSR and sustainability may be considered an essential part of ensuring there is a viable future for our industry. It has the potential to impact massively on the reputation, operational efficiency, innovation, the long-term prosperity of our industry, and the natural and societal environment we capitalise on.
We work towards achieving an overarching vision of an outdoor sector that does global, profitable business in a way that gives back more than it takes from nature and from people. We concentrate resources into a number of focus areas, breaking down sustainability into operable topics underpinned by the Sustainability Charter.


The EOG CSR & Sustainability team are here to inform, educate and support the outdoor sector.
