On December 15, 2022 President of Quality Bicycle Products Rich Tauer signed the Shift Cycling Culture Climate Commitment — a public statement that says we will report and reduce our carbon impacts.  

The commitment includes two parts: 

  1. Report – Signatories commit to disclosing their carbon impacts by measuring Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in accordance with the GHG Protocol by 2023 and will continue to do so on an annual basis. 
  2. Reduce – Signatories commit to disclosing their plans to reduce GHG emissions by at least 55% by 2030. 

“This commitment aligns with Q’s values as a B Corp.” said Tauer. “While this is a small step, it’s an essential one towards unifying the cycling industry around climate action to ensure a healthy, sustainable planet and industry for generations to come.”
