CSR profile:
The adidas Group strives to continuously integrate sustainability into its business, using innovative ways to make its products while minimising its environmental footprint and improving the lives of factory workers, its employees and people in the communities in which the Group operates. 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 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+improving our sustainability efforts. We receive recognition for our achievements by externals such as DJSI. More details:
