Commitment to Local Sustainability
Wilson Australia, as part of Amer Sports Australia, is proud to continuing to learn, evolve and push to becoming a more sustainable and responsible brand. Please find below several key actions that we have taken locally.
Carbon Neutral Shipping:
Using the Shopify Planet app, we ensure that all deliveries made from purchases from our ecommerce stores are carbon neutral.
Every month, the Planet App calculates the total shipping emissions generated by our orders and we pay to neutralise the emissions created by the orders.
5-Star Green Star Rated Building:
Our building, located at 9 Chifley Drive, Moorabbin Airport, 3194
Wilson Australia operates in a 5-Star-Green Star rated building.
Our building has been certified with the Design & As Built v1.2 certified rating. This represents 'Australian Excellence' in environmentally sustainable building practices.
This was achieved through a strong energy rating and a 99KW Solar Panel on our roof, among other initiatives.
This does two things for us, it helps us guarantee a minimum of energy that is 100% renewable (because we created it). It also allows us to limit our energy use through efficiency gains in building design.
In June 2021, we updated our energy contract to become 100% powered by GreenPowerTM.
This means our energy retailer must purchase our energy requirements from suppliers that produce 100% renewable energy. They will pay a tax on each unit of energy that does not match the quota of the customer’s GreenPowerTM energy requirements.
This is crucial to changing the energy market over time, and renders "fossil fuel" energy more expensive for the suppliers. “The more people choose GreenPower, the more energy from renewable sources goes into the grid.”
LOWCO2 100% Certified:
LowCO2 (100%) means that we are operationally carbon neutral. Amer has assessed, reduced and fully offset all emissions within their operational and financial control; including Scope 1, Scope 2 and limited Scope 3 emissions including waste, flights and staff travel.
Our emissions are audited and offset by the Low Carbon Reduction Institute. We offset our emissions with the Gold Standard & Verified Carbon Standard Cookstoves in Developing Nations, which in addition to having strong environmental benefits, also provides social benefits to the local community.
Game On Recycling:
We’re incredibly proud to announce the launch of Game On Recycling, a brand new sports equipment recycling pilot program.
At the end of their life, these items make their way to our dwindling landfills. Or, in a worst-case scenario, they skip landfills and leak into the environment. We believe that these items should have a better life at the end of their use, which is why we helped create Game On Recycling.
