    Leuven Skatecontest Report -Poolparty and Beach games Edition

    To give you an idea of the whole contest, well it looked like the intro of Baywatch, girls in red bathing suits, guys in bathing suits…  Even the funky tunes in the background took me back into the 80’s. I have to apologize for my typo in the beginning, it wasn’t much of a contest, it was more like a family gathering. It was so cool, just a whole lot of friends hanging and fooling around in way to short shorts. But there were some contests though, like the Best 80’s air, hot sand challenge or my personal favorite: ‘ THE BEST FLIP FLOP TRICK ‘, guys hitting the rails or throwing switch tre bombs of the stairs in flip flops. Some mojito’s and some burgers in between, this was one hell of a contest. And to end the day, a crazy bowl contest. Everybody dropped in at the same time and the last man standing got a free deck, bet you can create an image of the mayhem. I have to say, it was a great day with great people. Big thanks to T(w)its, Willem and the whole Leuven family. Photo credit : Joselito Verschaeve

    Volcom X AntiHero collection launch party in Belgium

    The ingredients to a successful Volcom x Anti-Hero Launch Party ? Some local beers, some good burgers and a “secret” D.I.Y spot. The guys from Volcom and Twits Skateshop had it all figured out. The location was not posted online, only a phone number. Everybody that wanted to get the address of the spot, had to text message us. The phone got spammed and shortly after the spot was crowded and ready for the party. This day was all about good times, having a good skate session and catching up with the locals. After filming some lines and some dirt bike stunts, a best trick contest got organized to celebrate the new clothing collection. Everybody was skating the new obstacle and crashing into each other to get some of fresh products from the collab.

    Nixon | The Four Moors: a journey through Sardinia

    Italy, the European country home to the Vatican, ancient ruins, Renaissance masterpieces, fashion, food, among countless other noteworthy things, is not typically associated with world-class waves. But things DO change. When a significant swell started tracking in the Mediterranean, Volcom’s Gony Zubizarreta and friend Marlon Lipke embarked on a plane to Sardinia, Italy, and joined Roberto D'Amico for an epic three-day surf mission that left them with a new perspective on Italy’s surf breaks. The Four Moors is a short film documenting this adventure. Film / edit by Francesco Thilo Sili. “I was just arriving home after the WQS in Martinique and got a call from Marlon Lipke saying that Italy was going to be pumping the next day! Roby Damico was already planning everything from Rome. We jumped on a plane that next morning and got the Ferry to Sardina straight away, we had to get there in time. The Mediterranean can be very tricky, swells come and go very quickly!” -Gony “I was impressed by the quality and power of some point breaks we surfed. Super rippable waves with pretty cool locals or even empty line ups and little bays with beautiful backgrounds and nobody around. The Italians are so funny, very open and social, they are constantly joking and laughing which made our trip one for the books! We had an awesome time, surfing all day and eating pasta amatriciana cooked by the master Chef Roberto Damico aka DiMaggio. The pizza was the best I’ve ever tried for sure. Food is out of control there. I miss it already.” -Gony “It was an amazing trip. I loved Italy and have to admit that I’m a fan of surfing in the Mediterranean Sea. Thank you, Roby and family for treating us like kings! Also, big thanks to Francesco Thilo for the filming and editing! Eugenio and all the friends that made this journey unforgettable for me! Big Hugs, Guillaume.” -Gony   It was an amazing trip, I loved Italy and have to admit that Im a fan of surfing in the Mediterranean Sea. Thank you Roby and family for treating us like kings!

New Future
Volcom Announces New Future
The Ongoing Journey Of Turning Sustainability Commitments Into Actions Following the results of a recent report from Volcom’s parent company Kering on the group’s ambitious 2012-2016 sustainability targets, Volcom has released an update on their progress and a detailed plan outlining the path forward. Building on the success of these targeted efforts, Volcom is continuing to refine and focus its sustainability initiatives in a progressive program called New Future. Sustainability efforts began humbly at Volcom back in 2005 and three years ago, the brand aligned with Kering’s broader sustainability commitments and outlined a list of their own goals: undertaking a yearly Environmental Profit & Loss (E P&L) analysis, a reduction of emissions, waste, and water use, and making Volcom surfing events Deep Blue™ certified, among others. Since then, Volcom has followed through on four E P&L analyses, eliminated PVC from the product supply chain, increased the amount of sustainable materials in the product mix, and achieved Deep Blue Surfing Event™ certification from the non-profit Sustainable Surf for its major surf events. Utilizing E P&L analysis and working in partnership with the Kering sustainability team, Volcom has gained valuable practical insights to streamline the product supply chain while reducing impacts on the ecosystem. The lessons of this focused approach will guide the brand’s sustainability strategy going forward, in the comprehensive New Future program. The New Future program is a 360-degree sustainability plan driven by Volcom’s vision of Strong Oceans + Stable Climate + Smart Society. By combining key factors that include Responsible Manufacturing, Impact Evaluation (E P&L), and Giving Back, New Future provides the roadmap for Volcom’s future. With renewed and evolving goals, Volcom has set its sights on better fiber sourcing—using more recycled content and organics, integrated brand messaging, New Future training to all employees, and consideration for end-of-life of all products. Additionally, the brand has recruited former VP of Sustainability Derek Sabori’s new agency, The Underswell, for continued advice and strategic support to fully implement this plan. "As our efforts continue to deepen, we’d like to focus in on a meaningful pathway that will highlight our commitment to responsible manufacturing, drive favorable results in our E P&L, and resonate positively with our customers. We believe our New Future roadmap does just that," said Todd Hymel, CEO of Volcom. Volcom became a Fair Labor Association member in 2014, and shares this and all their other sustainability updates Volcom's Sustainability page.
New Future
Volcom Sustainability 2013 - 2016 Progress Report Update
In 2012 our parent company, Kering launched an ambitious set of environmental and social compliance 5-year targets for all its Luxury and Sport/Lifestyle brands, and with our own sustainability program still relatively young, we were excited to be part of a larger initiative that help would take our program to the next level. With a course set by Kering for robust and engrained sustainability, we then came to you, our extended Volcom family, with an outline of Volcom’s own commitments that took the targets Kering had set and added a few of our own. Looking back now, these were really a set of challenges to ourselves; challenges we knew, if achieved, would help further strengthen the budding program we were building. Nonetheless, we felt it was important to put these expectations out there to the press, the public, and you, thus holding ourselves accountable to what we were striving to achieve. These commitments had a 2016 target date... we're proud of what we've achieved, but acknowledge there's a long way to go. Have a look at how we did and where we're going below. Our Sustainability Vision, as presented in April 2013: Adopt and Utilize the E P&L (Environmental Profit & Loss) Environmental Impact Management Tool Reduce Volcom's Carbon Emissions, Waste and Water Usage by 25% Eliminate PVC from Volcom Products Source Paper and Packaging Material from Recycled Sources and/or Certified Responsibly Managed Forests Increase the Amount of Sustainable Material & Processes in Volcom’s Product Mix Certify Volcom’s Major Surf Events as Deep Blue Surfing Events™ Continue Give Back Series that benefit community-based programs A Look Back at the Vision and the Targets: How We Did   Goal: Adopt and use the innovative E P&L (Environmental Profit & Loss) management tool Status: Accomplished This has been one of the marquee initiatives of our sustainability commitments, and in 2013 we embarked on our first report measuring the impact of Volcom products across our entire supply chain using the manufacturing data we collected in 2012. In fact, we’ve just recently wrapped up our 2015 E P&L, the 4th iteration of the annual report measuring previous year’s data. Learn more about the E P&L here. The benefit of adopting the E P&L is that it allows us to make better New Future decisions since it gives us a clear understanding of where our biggest impacts are occurring. Additionally, it translates these impacts into the language of business: dollars. To see the full details on what an E P&L is, and how and why it was developed, please Kering's E P&L website. Goal: Reduce Volcom's Carbon Emissions, Waste & Water Usage by 25% Status: Work in Progress You would think this would be the low hanging fruit, right? We'll, there's a catch with this target. It's one thing to control the water use at your facilities (we don't use much), and to reduce, reuse and recycle at your offices and stores. It's another thing to address the emissions that are a result of all the products we produce, and to reduce the amount of waste that's created and water that's used from the point of raw material extraction to the product shipping out of our distribution center. And that's just what this target has come to mean... When we put this target out there, we were not yet involved in E P&L accounting. We were thinking of typical environmental reporting guidelines for the sites that we own and operate, imagining that if we changed out all our lights, switched to low-flow fixtures and low-water landscaping (which we did in 2011-2012) and put a better recycling program in place (which we did), that we would be able to tackle and achieve this goal. Not so, once we adopted the E P&L management tool, the target moved considerably. In 2016, we're looking at the results in our E P&L to measure our impacts and now understanding that upwards of 77% of our environmental impacts are occurring at the furthest back points of our supply chain. In other words, it's how we design and source materials that will matter and really move the needle on this target. To address this, we'll continue to work with Kering and our strategy team to revise this goal to one that is more realistic and aligned with how we're now quantifying our impacts. Goal: Eliminate PVC from Volcom Products Status: Accomplished PVC is also known as polyvinyl chloride and is often used in products that require flexibility; things like belts and bags made out material meant to simulate real leather. Why avoid PVC? PVC contains high levels of phthalates, which are charged with being carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting. These phthalates, which are not bound to the PVC in any way, are at high risk of leaching out into the environment over time. There were a few product styles in our line that contained PVC at one time, but we are glad to say as of 2016 and moving forward, PVC has been eliminated from all Volcom products. Additionally, Volcom continues to work with Kering on a robust chemicals management program that includes ensuring that all hazardous chemicals have been phased out and eliminated from our production by 2020. Stay up to date with our testing on our Compliance page. Goal: Source Paper and Packaging Material from Recycled Sources and/or Certified Responsibly Managed Forests Status: Accomplished We can't imagine you’d be stoked to know that the paper that we printed on in the office, or the hangtags that were temporarily swinging from that new Volcom shirt you bought, were made from trees sourced from endangered or ancient forests. So ensuring that we move to a higher mix of certified, responsibly sourced paper with a high recycled content rate is important to us. So how are we doing? When we look at our biggest uses: 98% of the paper that our product catalogs are printed on is FSC certified, as was 100% of the paper that made up our first in-home mailer catalog. Additionally our biggest hangtag programs are either made with recycled content, and/or are FSC certified material and reports from our trim suppliers come back calculating 70% and more recycled content. As for office paper, here in North America we're at a +90% mix of certified/recycled content, and the cardboard we purchase for warehousing and shipping is at a 89% mix of certified/recycled. We are glad to report that each season, we're seeing more and more paper products get the attention they deserve, from office paper and boxes, to hangtags and catalogs. Goal: Increase the Amount of Sustainable Material & Processes in Volcom’s Product Mix Status: Accomplished Offering more sustainable choices in our collections is one of the surest ways to express our commitment and then share it with you. At one point, we branded styles that had a sustainability feature in them with a different logo – it was called V.Co-logical. We’ve since discontinued the use of V.Co-logical branding as signifier of a garment featuring sustainable material, with the expectation that sustainability is something that is meant for the entire Volcom line of products. With that said, you won’t always see sustainability pointed out on a product you get from us, but if you take the time to read the label or the description on the website, you’ll find the use of organic cotton (3.7% of all the cotton Volcom used in 2015 was organic) and recycled polyester (just over 7% of Volcom’s total polyester used in 2015 was from recycled content) occurring more and more. In fact, looking forward, we are challenging ourselves with the goal of our sustainable fiber mix being at a 20% ratio by the end of 2020 as outlined in our 2020 Sustainability Targets. Get more details on how Volcom is incorporating sustainable materials into products. Goal: Certify Volcom’s Major Surf Events as Deep Blue Surfing Events™ Status: Accomplished When Sustainable Surf came on the scene with a set of guidelines for running a more sustainable surf event, it was right in line with what we were thinking and we jumped on board immediately. Since 2012, each of our major surf events, the Fiji Pro (2012 – 2013) and the Volcom Pipe Pro on the North Shore of Hawaii, have been certified Deep Blue Surf Events. Then in 2015, we added the TCT Champs event at Lower Trestles at San Onofre State Beach in San Diego County, California as another Deep Blue Surf Event in our portfolio. Since working with Sustainable Surf, we’ve offset over 2,500 Mt of CO2 through verified, mostly Wildlife Works REDD+, programs allowing us to be a part of protecting threatened forests while providing sustainable development opportunities to local forest communities mainly in the Kasigau corridor in Kenya. To put it in perspective, this is the equivalent of eliminating 526 passenger cars being driven in North America for a year! Goal: Continue Give Backs to Community-Based Programs Status: Accomplished Our Give Back Series launched in 2009 when we offered a t-shirt in which a portion of the proceeds of each sale were donated to TACA (Talk About Curing Autism) to raise awareness around autism. Since then, we've partnered with many organizations to do the same. From breast cancer education and prevention (Boarding For Breast Cancer) and music in schools (Fender Music Foundation) to youth mentoring (STOKED and Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii). Happy to report, the program is alive and well. 2015 saw our continued our support of the Mauli Ola Foundation with the launch of our second Give Back with them, as well as a new partner in the Dan Eldon/Creative Visions Foundation. 2015 also marked Volcom's 5th year in working with Boarding For Breast Cancer (B4BC) to create a range of Snow products that includes a Give Back to B4BC. Since its inception, the Give Back Series has generated over a half million dollars for our non-profit partners and other community initiatives.   While there's always room for improvement, we're proud of what we've accomplished since that commitment back in 2013. However, a long journey is still ahead of us... Please join us in the New Future as we look ahead to the road to 2020 and stay up-to-date on all things sustainability at Volcom.
New Future
Updating the Volcom Sustainability Targets Looking Ahead to 2020
The Ongoing Journey of Turning Sustainability Commitments into Actions Having reflected back on the first leg of Volcom's sustainability journey, recalling all the great stories we were able to create in the years past, we turn our attention now to the future. We spent much of 2015 focused on building a New Future roadmap that will guide us in a meaningful way, enabling us to reach our sustainability targets. We’ve learned where our impacts occur, how they relate to the business of producing Volcom product and what it will take to aggressively address them. During the process of crafting our New Future roadmap we realized that we needed to distill what the driving forces are behind sustainability at Volcom. What is it that drives us, as a brand, towards sustainability? By asking ourselves this question we were able to clearly define the foundation of our environmental sustainability commitments. They are: Strong Oceans When our oceans are weak, we do not thrive as a species, period. Plus, we like surfing. Stable Climate As the climate becomes more erratic and unpredictable, the planning of our business and enjoyment of outdoor sports becomes that much more difficult. Smart Society It takes us all contributing to this New Future. Through education and innovation, commitments must be turned into action. It's up to all of us to play a part. Supporting these drivers are three pillars, which have already become the core tenants of our New Future program: Responsible Manufacturing - It starts with our P.A.S.S (Product And Social Safety) program that ensures our products are built responsibly and in compliance with the highest global social and chemical regulatory practices and is complimented, since 2014, by our Fair Labor Association membership. Learn more on our Compliance page. Giving Back - The Volcom Give Back series continues to support and bring awareness to organizations meaningful to our stakeholders (that's you, that's us). Impact Evaluation - The Environmental Profit & Loss allows us to measure and monitor the costs of environmental changes associated with our business, and then zero in on the areas that need the most attention.     2020 New Future Sustainability Targets   Armed with the knowledge we have gained since implementing our New Future sustainability program in 2013 and a clear vision of the program’s drivers and the pillars created to support them, we are ready to set the following 2020 sustainability targets to further advance our New Future. In no particular order, they are: Fiber Sourcing - Increase both the amount of recycled material in our polyester and nylon as well as the usage of organic, recycled and/or better* cotton in Volcom products, so that by 2020, we are at a 20% New Future mix. Messaging - Integrate New Future sustainability across all facets of Volcom’s consumer facing marketing. Education & Training - Create an internal Volcom employee and leadership New Future sustainability certification program with at least 90% of employees completing certification. Closing the Loop - Develop a program that resembles our Give Jeans a Chance program so that used Volcom products can be collected, processed and either donated or kept for closed loop manufacturing in the future (the technology is coming...). *For Volcom, better cotton might consist of organic, recycled, CMiA, BCI, or other cotton sources with an improved environmental and social impact.   Fully committed to our marquee New Future initiatives, meeting these 2020 targets will help to lower our E P&L results due to the intense focus on raw material sourcing and processing; the decisions lying deep within our supply chain, which we know represents upwards of 75% of Volcom’s environmental impacts and lies deep within our supply chain. These refined targets also help to engrain sustainable New Future thinking into the fabric of the brand and our employee's mindsets, which will be instrumental in our efforts to modify processes to meet new levels of sustainability.

The Underswell To Serve as Volcom's Sustainability Advisor
