Arctic Allies Program

PBI Arctic Allies program is for conservation-minded small businesses that want to make a meaningful contribution in support of our efforts to save polar bears and their habitat.

PBI Arctic Allies Program is a showcase for companies that demonstrate a commitment to environmental stewardship; challenge employees, suppliers, and customers to reduce their carbon footprints; and make conscious decisions and actions that reflect their environmental values.

Our Arctic Allies 

Cassiar Jade

Cassiar Jade Collection has specialized in the highest quality of nephrite jade since 1967 as a direct manufacturer and importer of jade jewelry and carvings. They donate a portion of the revenues from their stone bear carvings to PBI in support of our research and education efforts. They also created a website——as a way to communicate their intentions and goals. To minimize the impact of their business on the climate, Cassiar Jade Collection has partnered with and purchases carbon offsets annually to bring the business to carbon neutral.


Rather than using tree-produced paper products, CloverSoft produces hygiene papers from 100% virgin, unbleached bamboo pulp. As a recipient of INBAR (International network of bamboo and rattan) certification for creating a sustainable natural environment, CloverSoft's goal is to educate the general public in making conscious and responsible choices.


Nautisk is a leading provider of digital navigation, charts, and publications to commercial shipping. They take a very Norwegian approach to doing the right thing, simply. Their transition from paper to innovative digital products makes shipping companies more efficient, and also helps a typical customer save more than 2000kg of CO2 and 15 trees every year. That's saving our environment, as well as the polar bears.
