Impact Choice is our first step towards making a positive impact on our planet in regards to what we sell. It is a criteria, devised by INTERSPORT, which products must meet if they are to be acknowledged as a more responsible purchase.
Eighty percent of our carbon footprint comes from the production and materials used in the products we sell. That is why these areas are a key focus for Impact Choice.
Impact Choice Criteria
We work with many brands and they are all at different points in their sustainability journey. Furthermore, they all use differing certifications and innovations. As a consumer, understanding which products have a genuine positive impact can be unclear.
Impact Choice makes identification between product and planet protection much simpler. Regardless of the brand’s terminology, for a product to be highlighted as Impact Choice it must meet at least one of the two Impact Choice criteria.
- The entire product must be certified by a recognised standard.
- At least one main component must use a minimum of 50% responsible materials or technologies.
Regardless of the criteria above, a product will not be considered Impact Choice if it contains:
- Wool from mulesed sheep
- Down/feathers from live-plucked or force fed birds
