Mips’ total climate impact

In 2021 Mips carried out the first analysis of its total climate impact according to the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol. In 2022 and 2023, Mips has had access to more granular data and has been able to refine the analysis of total emissions. This has enabled an update of the calculations used in 2021 with more exact data. Previous year Mips set a goal to reduce its total emissions by 42 percent by the end of 2030 based on SBTi’s calculations, not including growth. For 2023, the target was to reduce total emissions by 12 percent per unit sold, and the outcome was an average decrease per sold unit with 20.8 percent.

A positive, strong corporate culture

Part of Mips’ vision is to use Mips’ technology so that helmets in all categories protect users better than current test standards promote.

Mips is a pioneer in this important field, so it is vital that the company can attract and retain employees with the right skills and passion to always make safer and better solutions. Even though Mips is the world leader in its field, Mips’ people are modest and curious, with a desire to learn more. Mips’ employees constantly challenges themselves and the company encourages all employees to bring the best of themselves to work every day.

Helmet safety

Sustainable societal development is extremely important for us, we believe that our technology and products lead to a more sustainable society since they are designed to improve helmet protection for both recreational and professional use. Improved helmet protection leads to increased safety and security while reducing risk for both short-term and long-term sick leave, as well as permanent injury.

A sustainable supply chain

Mips does not conduct any of its own production, and instead uses external suppliers for product manufacturing. To ensure that the supply chain and the manufacturing of the solutions is sustainable, Mips needs to ensure that the supply chains of its suppliers are sustainable and comply with requirements stipulated by laws and conventions.
