In January 2019 the BMC announced Duco® as the exclusive team kit sponsor of the Great Britain Climbing and Para Climbing Team for the 2019 season.
Duco® will provide athletic clothing for the senior, junior, para and development teams when they compete in regional, national and international events throughout the year.
Duco®, born only in 2016, has a clear and deep-rooted commitment to sustainability, community and competitive spirit. As part of this commitment, Duco® plants a tree for every product it manufactures and ensures sustainable sourcing of its fabrics and materials.
The GB Climbing Team kit alone has enabled the planting of over 1,000 trees throughout reforestation projects in Madagascar and Nepal.
The official 2019 kit was launched at an exclusive invitation-only event on March 29th 2019 in Sheffield, UK.
“We’re delighted Duco are supporting the GB Climbing Team ahead of a very important few years for the sport. Duco has a very clear alignment to our sustainability goals and this sponsorship marks the start of the next chapter in BMC and GB Climbing's history.”– Head of Competitions for the British Mountaineering Council, Zoe Spriggins
