Burton Snowboards

In 1977, Jake Burton Carpenter founded Burton Snowboards, the world’s leading snowboard company, out of his Vermont barn. Since then, Burton has played a pivotal role in growing snowboarding from a backyard hobby to a world-class sport by creating ground-breaking products, supporting a team of top snowboarders and pushing resorts to allow snowboarding. Today, the company designs and manufactures industry-leading products for snowboarding and the snowboard lifestyle.

Burton is excited to become a BICEP member because the company takes climate change and clean energy action personally – snowboarding is their life, livelihood and passion- and they think policy action is necessary to create meaningful progress. Burton is committed to making Burton as respected for their environmental and social impact as they are for their products. Privately held and owned by Jake and his wife, Burton President Donna Carpenter, Burton’s headquarters are in Burlington, Vermont with offices in Austria, Japan, Australia, California, Canada and China.
