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

2022 Carbon Footprint Report

With Carbon Dioxide being the greenhouse gas that changes the most due to human activity, we need to take meaningful steps to measure, reduce it and offset it! To enable us to reduce our CO2 emissions, we must first understand where  CO2 emissions are emitted from within the business.From here we can find ways to reduce it. Starboard has been monitoring our Carbon Footprint since 2017. The diagram shows an overview of CO2 emissions across Starboard’s workings. Take a look at our reports for a full breakdown of our emissions.

2022 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.
