February 10, 2020
Peak Design cements its commitment to sustainability and the common good
San Francisco, CA (February, 2020) — Peak Design, the worldwide leader in crowdfunding and everyday carry solutions, is proud to cement its commitment to sustainability and the common good as a Certified B Corporation (B Corp). The rigorous certification process verifies that Peak Design considers social and environmental impact in all business decisions, promotes consumer transparency, and is accountable to employees and partners within their supply chain. Peak Design is committed to using its business as a force for good and in doing so, joins over 3,200 companies across 150 different industries and 71 countries that have also become Certified B Corps.
To become a Certified B Corp, Peak Design completed a rigorous assessment and vetting process administered by the independent non-profit B Lab. Obtaining the certification helped Peak Design enhance its already robust Corporate Social Responsibility program. “Peak Design can always be improving, and B Corp provides a thorough framework for assessing all facets of our business – including many we had never considered,” commented Annie Nyborg, Peak Design’s Sustainability Director. “Formalizing our efforts allows us to better track and bolster our performance.”
As a founding member of Climate Neutral Certified, a non-profit that helps businesses measure, reduce, and offset a company’s carbon footprint , Peak Design firmly believes business accountability to the earth, their customers, and each other. Nyborg continues, “Consumers should have the ability to vote with their dollars by purchasing from responsible brands. In turn, businesses should feel the economic heat to clean up their acts.”
In addition to being 100% Certified Climate Neutral, Peak Design has adopted official standards for worker treatment, pay, safety, and conditions at all of its partner factories, and is a proud member of 1% For The Planet.

About Peak Design
Since 2010, Peak Design has been building innovative carry solutions with a simple overarching design directive: make the best things. The idea for our first product was born on a motorcycle trip through Southeast Asia and has since expanded to include a cross-functional ecosystem of bags, pouches, slings, straps, and clips. We’ve won applause along the way, but we’re most proud of the fact that we’re 100% crowdfunded and 100% employee-owned. We’ve raised $32.4 Million through 8 Kickstarter campaigns to become the world’s most successfully crowdfunded company. This allows Peak Design to stay investor-free and focused on the things that matter most: designing great products, fostering happy employees, and taking care of our customers and the natural environment.
