Greenpeace urges Adidas to follow example of Puma & Nike
Aug '11
Within two weeks of the release of the Greenpeace report on water pollution caused by global apparel brands in China, Puma made a commitment to phase out all toxic and hazardous substances from its supply chain by 2020, for which it will draft an action plan within eight weeks.

Nike also made clear its commitment last week that, it will release to the public, the information regarding its use and emission of toxic and hazardous substances.

However, Adidas, the world's second largest sporting brand is yet to make the kind of announcement, its main rivals; Nike and Puma have made.

Greenpeace has urged Adidas and other apparel brands to make a commitment to phase out all toxic and hazardous substances to the public as soon as possible, release to the public their information of use and emissions of toxic and hazardous substances.

It has also suggested these brands to draft a clear timetable for their action plan, so as to prevent further accumulation of toxic substances in rivers which threatens environment and human health.
