Let's take up a challenge even greater than the greatest sporting feats

Rossignol has been a steadfast partner to winter and mountain-sports enthusiasts around the world for over a century.

Today, we’re stepping up to meet the outdoor industry’s biggest challenge: protecting our mountain playground.     

Our actions include initiatives on circularity through our Second Life, Second Choice program (PFC-free apparel beginning 23/24), recyclability through our Essential program (20% recycled steel edges), making our factories sustainable with renewable energy (ISO 14001 certified), and more.

The Essential ski is 10 times more recyclable, increasing from an average of 7% to 77%. It’s also made from 73% recycled material to start, including certified and bio-sourced materials that use no solvents or water.

TRACEABLE PRODUCTS!

As part of our ongoing commitment to reduce the impact of our business, we're aiming to improve how we work with textiles.

We've engaged in a framework of ethical sourcing and exhaustive lifecycle analysis through Fairly Made in order to:

- Better understand four areas of production: material source, environmental impact, recyclability, and social impact

- Improve the efficiency of our supply chain and encourage our partners to do the same

2nd CHOICE PROJECT*

"Second choice" products are fully functional skis that suffered a minor defect during production, like blemished graphics, scratches or dents in the topsheet.

 

Our goal is to divert as many skis as we can from the waste stream, especially when the skis are perfectly functional and only have minor imperfections.

 

*The 2nd Choice project is only available in France, Norway, Sweden, Austria and Germany.

Like you, we cherish winter and have decided to do more to make sure it never ends.

 

We now offer you the opportunity to invite it into your home throughout the year with a new range of unique products made from upcycled skis.

 

*The 2nd Life project is only available in France.

WE ARE CONVINCED THAT THE FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE IS A COLLECTIVE STRUGGLE BASED ON POSITIVE ACTIONS

The Rossignol Group financially supports associations and companies that work on a daily basis to raise awareness of the challenges of climate change in the mountain environment and carry out concrete actions.

ALL OUR SITES HAVE BEEN USING 100% RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY SINCE JANUARY 2023, EXCEPT FOR MONTEBELLUNA WHICH USES 45%.

 

As part of our Respect Programme, the site is equipped with a solar power generation system. In January 2020, 600 photovoltaic panels were installed to produce some 200,000 kWh annually, equivalent to the consumption of 86 households.
