Arctic Cat’s business is partly dependent on conservation. If there are no grassy hills to jump over or snow-covered trails to sled, then there is no reason for outdoor enthusiasts to purchase its all-terrain vehicles or snowmobiles. Which is why the company is concentrating more on green procurement practices. Arctic Cat’s green procurement officers track government regulations and work with suppliers to implement more environmentally friendly practices.
