European Outdoor Conservation Association
The European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) is an initiative of the European outdoor industry with an objective of protecting the wild areas it cares so passionately about. The EOCA has been designed to harness the incredible power of the outdoor industry and raise money for grassroots conservation groups, with 100% of membership fees going to the support of projects. The association recently celebrated an important milestone, signing on its 100th member.
"Reaching 100 members so soon is a clear demonstration that the European outdoor industry is passionate about caring for the great outdoors and the wild spaces we all enjoy exploring. It is also a reflection of the fact that outdoor companies value the way in which EOCA can harness the collective contributions of many members, and direct these funds to the most worthwhile, relevant, and effective conservation projects worldwide." – Catherine Savidge, Joint General Manager, EOCA
We would like to congratulate the EOCA on this occasion and are very proud to be members ourselves.
