Green Business Practices

What's Our Commitment to the Environment?

The Pad Climbing is founded by and run by outdoor climbers. We know that we impact our environment by growing the sport through our business and we do our best to mitigate negative impacts by:

  • Supporting and educating the Leave No Trace Principals
  • Representing local climbers and conservationists through partnerships and advocacy
  • Supporting the Native peoples whose land we currently occupy through nonperformative land acknowledgement, partnership with tribal councils on initiatives, and offering free day passes to all Tribal ID holders
  • Certifying our businesses in each state we operate as “Green Business”
