The comprehensive assessment considers factors such as corporate governance, risk management, climate change mitigation, labour and environmental standards both within the company and with its suppliers, as well as innovation management.
In addition to being again included in the indices, Adidas was ranked best in its industry in the criteria of brand management, information security/cyber security & system availability, environmental policy & management systems, operational eco-efficiency, social reporting and talent attraction & retention.
In the current period of its sustainability strategy, the sporting goods manufacturer is pursuing tangible and measurable targets up to 2020. Key priorities include the use of more sustainable materials for products, tackling water scarcity in manufacturing countries and further improving working conditions in the supply chain. Adidas has not used plastic bags in its own stores since 2016, sources only sustainably produced cotton since 2018 and presented the world's first fully recyclable running shoe this year. From 2024 onwards, only recycled polyester will be used in every product and on every application where a solution exists.
