THE PLANET IS OUR PLAYGROUND AND IT'S THE ONLY ONE WE'VE GOT
At EXTREME we are passionate about leaving a positive legacy.
From the oceans to the mountains, our natural world has given us so much, now is the time to give back.
Although we recognise that we may not have all the solutions, we accept the challenge to learn, improve and do our part to safeguard the future for the generations to come. EXTREME have therefore taken action through partnerships with three initiatives and organisations.
We have partnered with “The Planet Mark” to measure our environmental impact and understand the measures we can take to propel us forwards on our mission to becoming carbon neutral.
We are signed up to 1% for the Planet through which we have committed 1% of our annual revenue to environmental non-profit organisations that are creating a more sustainable future for all.
We have committed to the United Nations “Sports for Climate Action” which commits us to raise awareness about climate change and promotes sustainable and responsible consumption through the power of sport and adventure.
In order to more thoroughly drive our activity within these initiatives and ensure we have a sound underpinning in our engagement, we have chosen 4 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to guide our focus and thinking
Steering us in this quest to do better for our planet is Amber Nuttall, our dedicated environmental and sustainability director who is no stranger to the perseverance and passion it takes to put our environment first. Amber supports and advises NGOs, governments and corporate organisations on their environmental goals and strategies. She is a proud board member of the Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation (BREEF) and is also an advisor, fundraiser, and ambassador to the Blue Marine Foundation.
EXTREME AT COP26

The COP26 summit will bring together global leaders and organisations to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The younger generation will be most impacted by the climate crisis, and it is paramount that their voice be heard at COP26. EXTREME will therefore provide a platform for active participation and engagement through the creation of the EXTREME Hang Out.
The EXTREME Hang Out will be a centre of idea sharing, inspiration, passion and will leave people with a renewed urgency to help drive the green agenda. Located on The Ferry, a renowned Scottish venue moored on the river Clyde with a capacity of 600, The EXTREME Hangout will be half a mile from the main COP venue and on the through way to the city centre.
Enabled by EXTREME, the venue will be supported by our partner NGOs and aligned sponsors who share our purpose. EXTREME will spark conversation via our live broadcast which will be shared across ours, and other web and social channels. The key messages and discussion points coming out of the EXTREME Hangout will reverberate around the world, engaging young people from the Highlands of Scotland to the coral atolls of the Indian Ocean, uniting them in their vision for a sustainable future.
