About Rab & Lowe Alpine

Equip Outdoor Technologies, the international brand behind Rab and Lowe Alpine, designs high performance technical clothing and equipment for outdoor enthusiasts, allowing them to experience the extremities of our natural environment. Both its employees and customers are acutely aware of the impacts of climate change, which they witness firsthand. It is important to Rab & Lowe Alpine that their products allow customers to be in nature without adversely affecting the environment, as well as being at the forefront of increased consumer demand for more sustainable products.

The aim: to be Net Zero by 2030, renew its status as a climate neutral business and set ambitious carbon reduction targets drawn from Science Based Target methodology (SBTi).

Supporting Rab & Lowe Alpine on their climate journey

South Pole's team in the UK & Ireland consulted with Equip Outdoor Technologies on its climate journey. After rigorous measurement of the brand's Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, creating an ambitious emission reduction plan and investing in a portfolio of carbon credits to compensate residual and unavoidable emissions, the company was awarded South Pole's Climate Neutral Label for the second year running.

Achieving climate neutral status is an important milestone on the journey to achieving net zero as the South Pole label has rigorous requirements for GHG accounting and reduction plans. You can read more about achieving net zero emissions here and the technical guidance for our labels here.

Using the data and advice that South Pole provided, Equip developed emission reduction plans in line with a 1.5 degree pathway. This will help the company credibly reach its target of net zero emissions by 2030.
