Greening the Billabong Pro

Billabong South Africa

National Surf Green Campaign – Global audience

The iconic brand Billabong and its integral Billabong Pro event wanted to make a concerted effort in reducing its impact on the climate.

The Jeffreys Bay event location in South Africa underwent a thorough analysis of the GHG Scope 1-3 assessment criteria by Cleaner Climate encompassing direct and indirect carbon emissions attributable to the event.

Cleaner Climate also advised Billabong on a number of greening initiatives to reduce the emissions arising from the event including solar-heated showers for the surfers after their comp sessions.

We even incorporated used KFC cooking oil as a source of biodiesel for the event generators………….

The project was so revolutionary for a surfing contest in South Africa that it made the South African parliamentary session minutes given by the house speaker.
