For this week’s edition of GEAR:30, Scarpa North America’s CEO, Kim Miller, is back to talk about Scarpa’s Green Manifesto and Scarpa’s pathway to B Corp certification. Kim and I discuss what measuring and accounting for progress looks like; the tricky balance of sustainably innovating without compromising performance; the process of recycling products and materials; assessing the life cycle of various products; and some of the gear that best exemplifies Scarpa’s commitment to these values (starting with a tele boot back in 2009!).
This is an important conversation to urge us to think about the “life cycle” of all the gear we invest in for the things we love to do. Kim’s commitment to these values is what started him on this path years ago, and he is a knowledgeable leader on all these fronts. So whether you are a consumer who loves good gear, or a business owner looking to start this process for your company, Kim has a lot of wisdom to share.
