Over the last several years, we at BE Ultimate have come to realize our obligation and responsibility to fight climate change. For us, the realization came from the fact that we have scaled—and with greater scale comes greater impact and greater responsibility.
You may have seen the symbol on our website that identifies our brand as being Climate Neutral Certified. This is something we’re very proud of. But what does this certification mean, and how did we get it?
Watching a team unpack their jerseys and seeing the bags pile up one after another, knowing that each was destined for the landfill, was sobering. Was there an alternative?
This year has been one of disappointment and uncertainty in many ways. With the COVID-19 virus causing the cancellation of tournaments and impeding everything from tournament play to training availability, it would be easy to assume that the sport of ultimate is looking at hard times in the future.
As promised, we have laid out a plan to be as transparent as possible as we continue our commitment to becoming B-Corp certified
To coincide with the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, BE Ultimate has partnered with Climate Neutral to offset our carbon footprint. Earth Day 2020’s theme is climate action. Climate Neutral accelerates corporate climate action by helping companies measure and understand their carbon footprints, drives funding into climate change solutions by requiring all Certified Brands to purchase carbon offsets, and reduces harmful emissions.
