At HEAD, we love and support sport. Our job is to enhance sporting performance and give encouragement to those who love sport too. However, as a company, it’s not just about what we do, it’s also about how we do it. It’s never been more important to think about how we perform in terms of the environment. To do that, we need to rethink everything we do. We are now at the beginning of a crucial journey, where the ultimate destination is the maximum achievable sustainability in all our processes. This journey will be a gradual series of real improvements. So this is the time to rethink every step so we can elevate our own performance game.
The stakes are high, but we’re in this to win.
RETHINKING OUR SUSTAINABILITY PILLARS
We’re working to not only reduce packaging in all areas but also to redesign it to eliminate plastic, replacing it with sustainable materials with fewer printing inks across all our groups.
We continuously grow our business through our innovative use of technology. Our approach to sustainability is exactly the same. We are constantly researching new materials and production processes, working to create more sustainable products.
RETHINKING OUR STRATEGY ON CLIMATE ACTION
In 2007, HEAD partnered with the global environmental charity Cool Earth to kick off a worldwide environmental program – the first of its kind for a sporting goods company.
RETHINKING WHAT WE DO AT OUR LOCATIONS
All energy at our headquarters in Kennelbach is supplied by an on-site hydro plant driven by the neighboring Bregenzer Ach river. The Schindler GmbH & Co KG supply all commercial facilities on site with their own green electricity.
In 2021 we released our first bag created using recycled rPET bottles. This project is being used as the basis for developing more products using recycled materials.
