Mammut scored the highest grade in the 2021 Scorecard, but slipped back somewhat in the 2023 Scorecard. However, Mammut has set some of the strongest emissions reduction targets among scorecard brands, and was the only brand to be awarded a ‘B’ in the Greener Shipping category for committing to actively reduce its freight emissions and ship using Zero Emission Vessels by 2030. Mammut is also working to increase textile circularity. Mammut should provide leadership by improving transparency into its supply chain renewable energy transition and coal phase out, and should continue to advocate internationally for renewables to regain its previously strong advocacy grade.
