Our ambition is to be a sustainable company.

Being a sustainable business is about striking the balance between shareholder expectations and the needs and concerns of our employees, the workers in our supply chain and the environment. We truly believe that acting as a responsible business – one which is fully committed to respecting human rights – will contribute to lasting economic success. We are continuously working towards becoming a more sustainable company. While we have been in this game for a long time, we will never stop learning and improving our sustainability efforts. For us, it is about being prepared, setting the right pace and having both the drive and stamina to go the distance. It is about being persistent, overcoming setbacks and difficulties and never giving up on the overall goal. Just like a true athlete never would.

Adidas Sustainability Actions

Mitigating Climate Change

The responsible use of energy is critical for our planet to survive. In order to mitigate climate change, we are committed to reducing our absolute energy consumption and CO2 emissions, transitioning to clean energy, and looking into energy harvesting opportunities. adidas is proactively addressing the impacts of climate change through several initiatives in its own operations, its supply chain and through various partners. As a signatory to the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, adidas has committed to reduce both its own and its suppliers’ greenhouse gas emissions compared to 2017 by 30 percent by 2030 and to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

Green Funds

Launched in 2012, the greenENERGY Fund acts as a source of capital for energy efficiency and green energy projects across all adidas locations. It has proved to lead to carbon reduction, with almost 80 projects already supported by this financial source. High-return projects are used to subsidize projects that may be less appealing financially but promise major reductions in carbon emissions.

Innovating Materials and Processes

We create the best for the athlete, while optimizing our environmental impact. We are committed to steadily increasing the use of more sustainable materials in our production, products and stores while driving towards closed-loop solutions. From 2024 onwards, adidas will use only recycled polyester in every product and on every application where a solution exists. The first fully recyclable running shoe Futurecraft.Loop has been in the test phase since 2019. The market launch is planned for 2021.
