Sustainabilty

We at ION believe that limits are defined mostly by an individual’s skills and passion. Wind and weather are barriers that we can overcome.  Therefore, we provide you with the gear to find - and exceed - your own limits. We support all of you in fulfilling your dreams and your desires on the water, on the slopes and in the air. But when our planet is not healthy, we are confronted with other insuperable limits. We see it as our mission to counteract this development by helping to keep the sea and the air clean and our earth healthy.

Production

Shortening Distances

We are committed to bringing production and marketplace closer together while optimizing our global supply chain structure with new production sites in Europe. We are reducing ineffective logistics routes, CO2 emission through land transportation and follow standards with the help of certified suppliers in Europe.

Mindset

Mission to minimize

We see it as our mission to minimize the environmental footprint with several efforts in all business areas. We contribute to this overall mission by processing leftover materials, reducing print materials and extend the overall product life cycle while developing high-quality sports gear which is designed for long-term use. Furthermore we are organizing the ION beach & trail clean days when communities rallied together with the common goal of collecting the trash littering their playground

Partnerships

Acting Eco Responsible

ION relies on the behavior and resources of several key partners who work to improve the way we build our products and conduct our business.

Acting with ecological responsibility has a high impact on how we are choosing our business partners.

Packaging

We invest in sustainable packaging that over time reduces its environmental footprint. During an ongoing process we have now reduced our packaging materials to the bare minimum. As well we use 100% recycled materials for packaging and labels without laminate and gloss varnishes.

Materials

ION is continuously sourcing for new, innovative and more sustainable materials. We are committed to avoiding the use of harmful chemicals by opting for approved materials and suppliers. The majority of our fabric manufacturers are bluesign® and Ökotex 100 certified.
Clean Trail Days

Clean Trail Days 2022

Save our playgrounds

Join our worldwide Clean Trail and Beach Days,
kicking off from 01.05.2022 – 31.07.2022

As mountain bikers and outdoor enthusiast we feel connected to our mountains, local forest, oceans, lakes and rivers. To practice these sports that mean so much to us, we depend on our natural environment and in turn feel it is our responsibility to take care of it.    

The “Save Our Playgrounds” initiative ION, Duotone and Fanatic aims to protect and preserve our environment for future generations so they too will be able to enjoy the nature and the stoke of our sports.  

In 2022, we call on you to help us in a joint effort to save our playgrounds and clean up a minimum total amount of 25,000 pieces of litter.
