European Outdoor Conservation Association
The outdoor sector also wants to give something back to the environment. It has therefore created the EOCA - the European Outdoor Conservation Association. And the association has been amazingly successful.
The EOCA is a not-for-profit organisation based in the Swiss town of Zug. It was created by the European outdoor industry in 2006 with the aim of using membership fees to support projects all over the world intended to preserve and protect nature.
Mammut was one of the first companies to join the EOCA, which now has more than 60 members. Since it was set up five years ago, the association has already supported 36 projects and collected an unbelievable 860,000 euros.
