No Apologies: Oil & Gas CEO Challenges ‘Ridiculously Hypocritical’ Policies Of North Face



quote:

In the summer of 2021, Innovex Downhole Solutions Inc., a competitor of Liberty, wanted to give its employees co-branded apparel from The North Face for Christmas. North Face refused because it didn’t want its brand associated with petroleum companies.

Wright found it peculiar that North Face, a company with very few products that aren’t derived from oil and gas, wouldn’t want to be associated with companies that produce it.

“It’s so ridiculously hypocritical,” Wright told Cowboy State Daily. “I spent 15 years speaking on energy and climate change. I love this discussion and debate, and I think the public in general is just ignorant on it.”

After North Face turned its back on Innovex, Liberty launched a campaign to thank North Face for being such a great customer of the oil and gas industry, which included YouTube videos that went viral and billboards in downtown Denver.

Wright said it took two months to find a billboard company willing to sell him space for the ads.

FWIW Patagonia has done the same thing, turning down oil companies and companies that don’t fit it’s climate ideas, but is following up on significantly reducing petroleum based products. You may not agree with the policies, but at least they’re not hypocrites

I buy quality outdoor gear from companies that aren't overtly political.

Yes they are, almost everything we touch in day-to-day personal and business life is a product of the oil and gas industry.

We cannot survive without it or we’d be back in the Middle Ages.

The CEO addresses this exact comment.

quote:

Wright said the company’s response was more hypocrisy. He pointed out that recycling of synthetic materials is an energy-intensive process that requires fossil fuel energy.

“They’re taking old oil and gas and using new oil and gas to reform the old oil and gas into an updated form,” Wright said.

It's like seeing a vegan wearing Birkenstocks in the wild.

And even if it's not a product of oil and gas, it is transported via oil and gas.

Having to get called out for using fossil fuels before they even attempt to change their ways, yeah not hypocrites at all.

I cannot really say "go woke, go broke" applies, but I can say they are not getting any more of my money and have not for a while. There are plenty of other clothing companies who are satisfied to just make clothes.

Looks like a marketing stunt by Liberty to get their name out. It worked I guess. I wasn’t familiar with them until now. Only reason I can come up why they are revisiting this story
