Protect Our Winters | UK

WIRSOL is proud to announce our sponsorship with Protect Our Winters UK, (POW UK), we have signed up to be the climate change organisation’s first ever ‘Summit Partner’. The sponsorship will empower POW UK to develop initiatives designed to educate and galvanise individuals into collective action on climate change, driving demand for a low carbon economy and a clean-energy future.

Protect our Winters originally started by snowboard legend Jeremy Jones in the US in 2007, Protect Our Winters is a passionate crew of international die-hards, professional athletes, climate experts and industry brands, mobilising the outdoor sports community to lead the charge towards positive climate action.

The UK branch was born in May 2017 and aims to create an optimistic narrative around climate change, educating and empowering individuals to take simple and rewarding actions, which will in turn create consumer and corporate pressure for sustainable products and investments. POW do this by engaging individuals and organisations through their snow-sports livelihood and passion. They educate them on the risks of climate change and support them to take effective action.

“The past decade has been the warmest on record and climate change is already impacting winter, with serious implications for the future of snow-sports”, says Sandy Trust, founder of POW UK. “Transitioning to a clean- energy economy by investing in solar energy has always been one of our organisation’s core priorities. The pace and scale of Wirsol’s solar investments in the UK, Germany and Australia are genuinely inspirational and our purposes could not be more aligned. We’re very grateful to Mark Hogan and the team at Wirsol for their belief in POW UK and are really looking forward to working together to make a difference.”

Mark Hogan, Managing Director of WIRSOL comments;

“I am delighted to have partnered with the incredible organisation Protect Our Winters UK.

I am excited to watch our partnership evolve and make a difference collaboratively!”
