Puma bags Guardian sustainable business award

Puma is the overall winner of this year's Guardian Sustainable Business Awards and also won the award in the category “Biodiversity” for the Puma Environmental Profit and Loss Account (E P&L). The awards were announced at a ceremony in central London.

Puma beat 35 other companies and projects from the shortlist to become overall winner.

The Guardian Sustainable Business Awards (GSBAs) reward best practice in sustainable business, showcasing innovative corporate initiatives that tackle the most pressing environmental and social challenges businesses face and that are part of a comprehensive sustainability strategy.

Both the “Biodiversity sponsored by Friends of the Earth” and the overall awards went to Puma's Environmental Profit and Loss Account (E P&L). Last year, the Sportlifestyle company published this worldwide unprecedented Environmental Profit and Loss Account for the first time, analyzing environmental factors such as water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions throughout its core business and supply chain operations.

As part of Puma's long-term sustainability plan, the analysis was commissioned in recognition that producing and selling Puma products has a wide impact along the entire supply chain. By identifying the most significant environmental impacts, Puma will develop solutions to address these issues.
