Launched in 2019, the Outdoor Business Climate Partnership (OBP) is an alliance betwwen SIA, the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) and the National Ski Areas Assocation (NSAA). Together, we represent the $887 billion outdoor business sector, a powerful economic voice for strong climate policy.
The Outdoor Business Climate Partnership represents thousands of outdoor retailers, manufacturers, suppliers, sales reps and resorts across the country. Our businesses, our customers and the nearly 150 million Americans who participate in outdoor activities each year are dependent on a stable climate and have a vested interest in being part of the solution.
Our mission is to elevate the business voice of the $887 billion outdoor industry to drive bipartisan action on climate.
Our policy agenda. We’re focused on elevating the business voices of the outdoor industry to engage policymakers on both sides of the aisle, leveraging our influence and building bipartisan consensus on:
- Putting a price on carbon
- Decarbonizing the grid
- Advancing renewable energy
- Promoting nature-based carbon solutions
OBCP is our platform to engage our business members to advocate for climate policy alongside our trade group partners. With this, we're continually providing our business members with opportunities to engage lawmakers at the state and federal level.
