BIC Sport garde le label ECORIDE en 2016

BIC Sport is maintaining its effort and commitment to manufacturing its surf, windsurf and SUP boards using processes that respect the environment as far as possible. The company's permanent environmental quest has been recognized for the second year running with the award of an Ecoride gold medal, decided by a jury composed of experts from the fields of the environment and economics. The "GOLD" label certifies that our commitment is of the highest level in the following three areas : environmental management, eco-design and evaluation of our materials suppliers, and finally our social responsibility. Ecoride is a certification of the good intentions of Action Sports and Outdoor businesses, supporting and giving recognition to those businesses with a clear environmental policy and commitment. Largely created by the EuroSIMA organisation 5 years ago, the ECORIDE label has become a powerful tool for manifesting businesses' individual environmental commitments, motivating their staff, and enabling them to benefit from the recognition it brings.

More about the Ecoride designation



BIC Sport has been manufacturing watersport products for over 30 years. Long before ‘eco-friendly’ was a buzzword we began developing “clean” manufacturing processes by recycling wherever possible, eliminating gas emissions and conserving energy and water. From start to end of life-cycle, BIC Sport products are thoughtfully produced with preserving the environment we all share in mind. And perhaps least recognized but most important, BIC Sport products are BUILT TO LAST - meaning fewer boards and boats taking up residence in your local landfill.
