Burton is a purpose-led brand rooted in snowboarding and the outdoors. Their goal is to positively impact the lives they touch by fighting for the future of people, the planet, and sport. Burton manifactures snowboards, snowboard boots, bindings, clothes, backpacks and other things you need in the slopes.
Jake Burton Carpenter founded Burton Snowboards out of a Vermont barn in 1977 and dedicated the rest of his life to snowboarding. He was Burtons founder, the soul of snowboarding, the one who gave us the sport we all love so much.
Burton has been committed to carbon reduction and climate advocacy for years. Burton is minimizing their impact on the environment by reducing carbon emissions, ensuring that their products are healthy for the planet and people, and making products that last. Burton’s goal is to be climate positive by reducing emissions and removing more greenhouse gases than they emit annually. And they have had some early success. Since 2017, they’ve measured all emissions produced by their owned and leased facilities and reported the reduction efforts annually.
