Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

It is common knowledge in our industry that there is one undisputed leader in reporting on the topics, businesses and trends that impact all of us the most, and it is shop-eat-surf.com. Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

Billabong was one of 10 companies recognized by the United Nations and the Foundation for Social Change at the Global Conference for Social Change last week in New York.

 

Companies and organizations that received the Leaders of Change award demonstrated an exemplary commitment to the pursuit of sustainability by embedding environmental and social performance in the competitive strategy of the firm or organization, according to the conference website.

 

The Foundation for Social Change brings together the private sector, non-profits and government groups to focus their efforts on solving social problems through partnership engagements.

 

Billabong’s humanitarian and environmental efforts include an ongoing commitment to the SurfAid International Schools Program, the ongoing application of Social Accountability International's SA8000 workplace rights program, Billabong's annual Design For Humanity event, the expansion of the recycled plastic bottle boardshort program, the ongoing measurement and reporting of the Group's global carbon footprint, and the support of Dave Rastovich and his TransparentSea crew, who are currently sailing down the West Coast to raise awareness of ocean issues and the need to protect the marine environment.
