Drummond Lawson

Director, Social and Environmental Sustainability, Arc’teryx Equipment, Inc.

Drummond Lawson is the director of sustainability at Arc’teryx, a Vancouver-based producer of outdoor equipment and apparel. In his four-plus years at the brand, Drummond has launched and now leads its environmental and social impact programs.

An environmental chemist by background, Drummond focuses on good design as a tool for positive change – striving to create enduring brand value through more sustainable product innovation and values-based culture engagement. He previously directed sustainability efforts at Method Products in San Francisco and worked as a materials scientist at EPEA in Hamburg.

In addition to being an enthusiastic and perhaps overly competitive skier, runner, cyclist and baker, Drummond is a fellow of the Aspen Institute First Movers’ social intrapreneurship fellowship and holds degrees from the University of Calgary, Universite de Savoie and Cambridge University.
