Join the Sustainability Working Group
The OIA Sustainability Working Group (SWG) has an open membership. We encourage all companies throughout the supply chain to get involved.
There is no cost to join. SWG voting members pay an annual fee, based on a sliding scale tied to corporate revenue and OIA membership.
Benefits of Membership
Voting rights: Member businesses who pay SWG participation fees have the opportunity to shape future index content and other tools by voting in the approval process.
Collaboration opportunities: Access to a forum to collaborate with your peers in the industry to share best practices and take action to address your most pressing sustainability challenges.
Recognition as global leader: The outdoor industry and SWG are gaining worldwide recognition for sustainability index work and the thought leadership and the collaboration it demonstrates. Your participation in the SWG will keep you informed of the latest sustainability best practices and enable you to contribute to their development.
Media/communications recognition: When appropriate, SWG voting member businesses will receive special recognition in presentations, websites, marketing collateral, and other OIA communications and media vehicles (both within and outside the industry) as leaders in the effort.
Access to collaborative workspace: SWG members receive complimentary access to the online SWG discussion forms and working group resources.
