WHAT IS IT?
At BRP, we believe that you can have a great time and still be safe. Because of the nature of what we do and the adventures we bring to people around the world, we are very committed to the safety and well-being of our riders and our playgrounds, as well as that of all fans of outdoor activities. We are thrilled to have developed a global program called Responsible Riders to remind people that you can have a great adventure while being conscious of and attentive to your surroundings and behaviour: in fact, it might even enhance the ride. With more riders than ever and more playgrounds to explore, we want to ensure our users enjoy our vehicles in safe and respectful ways for the environment and for others sharing the space.
Whether on snow, water, road, air or ground, we encourage our riders to behave responsibly and respectfully towards the environment, other users and for their own well-being.
As a starting point, we are pleased to launch this program with Sea-Doo, one of the most global and open-minded communities that continues to grow. Identifying these riders as the first ambassadors for thoughtful, responsible use will make the ride more enjoyable for everyone.
We are officially launching the program on September 9. We wish you many more great memories worth sharing!
