Point of View: Unique Capitan The Mothership

Näkökulma: Ainutlaatuinen Capitan The Mothership

Snowboarding's deep-rooted connection to nature has driven brands to think about how they can do their part to protect our planet. Many brands have taken significant steps in being environmentally friendly, but one brand has stood out in particular: Capita. Their The Mothership factory is a masterpiece that combines technology, innovation and environmental awareness.

The Mothership is located in Feistritz, Austria, and is currently the world's first 100% clean hydropower snowboard factory. But its environmental friendliness is not limited only to the energy source. Locally procured materials have been used in the construction of the factory, and its design has taken into account the saving of water and energy as well as the recycling of waste materials.

One of The Mothership's unique features is its "hot water pipe" system, which takes the excess energy generated in snowboard manufacturing and uses it to heat the factory during the colder months. This not only reduces energy consumption, but also reduces the carbon footprint.

In addition, Capita has achieved ISO 14001 environmental management certification for The Mothership, which recognizes the organization's commitment to environmentally friendly practices and continuous improvement.

But why is this so important? Snowboarding is a sport that is particularly dependent on nature and the seasons. Changing weather conditions and snow amounts directly affect the future of the species. Capitan The Mothership is an example of how companies can make a positive change and lead the way towards a more sustainable future.

When choosing your next board, consider the brand's environmental values. Capita has shown that it is possible to combine top-class performance with environmental friendliness. The Mothership is much more than just a factory; it is the cornerstone of visionary thinking, innovation and environmental awareness.

The next time you're snowboarding on the slopes and feeling the wind in your face and the snow under your feet, remember that your choices matter. Snowboarding and nature go hand in hand, and it is our responsibility to ensure that this relationship flourishes in the future.
