Equip Sustainability Summit 2022

Join us in driving positive change in the outdoor industry!

As an outdoor industry, we are facing huge challenges: from climate change and the pressure on precious natural resources, to fairness and equal opportunities. We need to act now, and we need to work together.

The Equip Sustainability Summit 2022, taking place in Leusden/Netherlands on 5th April 2022, brought together more than 70 leading industry professionals, retailers, stakeholders and outdoor enthusiasts to explore opportunities and create a common vision for a more sustainable future.

The summit took place in the new European Rab Service Centre. After beginning operations in autumn 2021, the centre was officially opened at the event.

Debbie Read, Head of Corporate Communications and CSR at Equip, explains: “We couldn’t be happier about the outcome of our first international Equip Sustainability Summit. At Equip, we have committed to an ambitious CSR strategy that affects all levels of our business which demands strong and consistent effort. We know that change is hard, and we know we can’t do it alone. With the hugely positive response we received during the Sustainability Summit, we have seen that the only way forward is to tackle these challenges together.”
