adidas is a global business and operates across the globe. We therefore have a responsibility to look after the environment, both for people today and for future generations.

Managing our environmental impacts at our own sites and along the value chain, where our products are designed, created, manufactured, transported, and sold, is a key focus of our work. Sustainability is an integral component of our strategy ‘Own the Game’ and we have a clear roadmap for 2025 and beyond. We have developed an approach to address our carbon footprint, water efficiency and quality and are committed to steadily increasing the use of more sustainable materials in our production, products and stores while driving toward circular business solutions.

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.

adidas’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets have been approved by the ‘Science Based Targets initiative’ (SBTi). The targets covering GHG emissions from adidas' own operations (scopes 1 and 2) are consistent with reductions required to keep warming to 1.5°C, the most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement. adidas’ GHG reduction target for the emissions from its value chain (scope 3) meet the SBTi’s criteria for ambitious value chain goals, meaning they are in line with current best practice.
