PROOF POINTS OF EXECUTION
Close The Loop
Mammut’s Close the Loop pilot project helps make outdoor sports more sustainable. Mammut is launching the Close the Loop pilot project in partnership with climate protection organization Protect Our Winters Switzerland (POW). By recycling unused ropes and manufacturing new products out of them, Mammut is helping to make outdoor sports more sustainable. The project’s key motivation is to move ropes from a linear product life cycle to a circular one – because Mammut is convinced that the circular economy is becoming increasingly important for the sustainable use of our natural resources. In a first step, Mammut collects used ropes of all brands and takes care of the recycling. In addition to the ropes it collects, waste and offcuts from Mammut’s own rope production are also recycled.
