We're committed to protecting the great outdoors
European Outdoor Conservation Association
As a proud member of EOCA for several years now, we help support conservation projects all over the world. EOCA supports valuable conservation work by raising funds from within the European Outdoor sector and promoting care and respect for wild places.
In 2020, we donated £5000 to EOCA which went towards selected conservation projects tackling plastic pollution in the environment and at source, in Spain, Italy, Brazil, Columbia, and the UK.
George Fisher Tea Round
The Tea Round is an inspiring 30-mile route covering over 12,000ft of elevation. It starts and finishes at the doors of George Fischer in Keswick - a great alternate running challenge, or for those eager to explore some of the finest landscapes in the Lake District.
In 2021, we teamed up with the Tea Round to match fund the donations generated by those who complete the run. These donations help support the work of Fix the Fells (see below for more on their incredible work!)
Fix The Fells
Introducing the Lake District’s unsung heroes! Fix the Fells is an organisation dedicated to caring for the extensive network of mountain paths across the National Park. Their invaluable work helps to reduce erosion, protecting this iconic landscape.
We’ve been in awe of this team’s amazing work for many years and alongside supporting them via the George Fisher's Tea Round, in 2021 we donated our Black Friday budget to them.
BMC Climate Project
The Climate Project is an environmental campaign set up by the British Mountaineering Council in conjunction with Moors for the Future, as a way to help combat the climate crisis. The project supports work which protects peat moorlands around the UK.
To date, we have donated over £25,000 to The Climate Project. These donations go towards the planting of sphagnum moss, which is especially good at capturing carbon from the atmosphere.
Lunchtime Litter pick
Removing litter helps to ensure environments are safe spaces for wildlife - in turn helping local ecosystems to thrive. It’s a simple way to improve the green spaces on your doorstep!
At Montane our team is passionate about doing what we can to help, that’s why we carry out regular lunchtime litter picks around our HQ office based in Northumberland.
Women in Adventure Film
We want to see more women who love the great outdoors on the big screen! That’s why we sponsor the BMC Women in Adventure film, to encourage more of you to do just that.
Over the years this inspiring competition has also highlighted many important causes - including diversity in the outdoor sector and ways in which to tackle the climate crisis.
