We are a dynamic organization, one that evolves in sync with both people and planet. Progressing with a sense of ownership over our impact means we lead by example and contribute beyond what is asked of us. Whether it is providing disaster relief, striving for climate neutrality, or donating to communities in need – we’ve made it our mission to define success not solely by profit, but by the impact we create on the world and its people.
Goal Zero was born from a belief that a lack of resources should never limit human potential. Each year we commit to putting a portion of our profits towards funding projects around the world, from Navajo Nation right in our own backyard to providing relief to people impacted by natural disasters. Our goal is to work with communities to learn about their most critical needs and provide a sustainable source of power to promote their success.
For more than a decade we have responded to natural disasters directly with product donations and employee volunteers, as well as partnered with disaster relief organizations to offer discounts to those impacted by long-term power outages.
We acknowledge the lack of diversity across race, ethnicity, and gender in the outdoor recreation and tech industries. Moving forward, we’re expanding our impact program to partner with organizations dedicated to enabling access for underrepresented communities in outdoor recreation and increasing youth participation and education in STEM fields.
Labor & Human Rights
We require all our factories to comply with a list of standards around labor and living conditions; health and safety; wage and benefits; and juvenile worker protections. We hire a third party to perform audits and ensure compliance. If factories don’t comply, we work with them to fix it. If they don’t implement the necessary changes, we’ll find a new manufacturing partner.
We offset 100% of carbon emissions generated through our shipping operations, purchase 100% renewable electricity for use at our corporate headquarters, and are reducing the amount of virgin material used in our packaging
For years we’ve worked to refurbish and recycle as much product that returns to our warehouse as possible. This means re-purposing lightly used products for resale whenever we can and recycling key components when we can’t. We continue with the commitment to expand our sustainability efforts beyond these best practices.
New Corporate Headquarters
As an organization, we are constantly seeking to improve our impact on the world around us. This includes our physical space – so we have significantly upgraded our headquarters. From structural upgrades like insulated concrete walls for more efficient heating and cooling to motion-sensitive LED lighting requiring substantially less energy than fluorescent fixtures, we are working to reduce our footprint. All energy consumed in our office and warehouse is generated by renewable sources in partnership with our local utility’s Blue Sky program.
