Carbon Footprint Reports

Each year we will calculate and disclose our Carbon Footprint in the following report. Please click to download the PDFs.

Our reports will be as transparent as possible and we welcome your questions and comments concerning all the info presented.
Please help forward all your ideas on how to reduce our print further and how to present our calculations better and email us at

June – December 2022 Carbon Footprint


When we begun calculating our carbon footprint we reported our emissions for the year between product launch dates – From June to June.

These days lots of different products launch at different times of the year so it no longer makes sense to report our emissions in this way.

To make things easier for everyone, from 2023 we will start reporting for the calendar year. 

In the meantime we want to ensure we are transparent about ALL our emissions, including those between June 2022 (where our 2022 report ends) and December 2022 (where our 2023 report will begin). That’s what this report is for – filling the gap!

2023 Carbon Footprint Report

From the beginning, SOMWR has taken steps to be the best clothing brand for the planet. Whilst also taking measures to ensure the materials used by the brand release the least amount of CO2, and use the least amount of water, there are still areas where we need to monitor and reduce. Such as areas of travel for the staff and electricity usage. The pie chart shows an overview of where emissions are emitted across SOMWR. View the full report to learn more!



Based on our latest calculations, the total carbon footprint for the iQFOiL Olympic equipment is 721.31 kg CO2e.

The iQFOiL is the official windsurfing equipment of the 2024 and 2028 Olympics in Paris and Los Angeles. The equipment designs are locked and won’t be changed until at least 2029, but that doesn’t stop us from continually improving and updating our Equipment Carbon Footprint calculations.

Starbord Blue also supports iQFOiL with calculating and offsetting the carbon footprint of their events and competitions.

Have You Heard About Our Offsetting Programs?

The Plastic Disclosure Project is an initiative that requests annual reporting and transparency regarding the production, use and handling of plastic and plastic waste by organisations.

Carbon Offset Program

Starboard is completely transparent about its role as an industrial producer and we are taking responsibility for our carbon footprint.

Plastic Offset Program

Starboard is guilty in playing a role in the plastic industry, but we are playing a part of the solution by offsetting our whole plastic.
