Adidas Group has released a corporate responsibility report (PDF).
In 2007, Adidas say that all Group athletic footwear factories became part of the reporting program. Factories new to the indicators recorded data with less accuracy than those that have already been working with the indicators for a few years. In 2007 Adidas saw an increase in the average consumption of key resources per pair of shoes since Reebok footwear factories joined the system and they have yet to improve environmental efficiencies, according to the company.
The report highlights the new Adidas Grün (‘green’), a collection of footwear and apparel for men and women that the company says minimizes its environmental impact by efficiently using natural resources involved in ts production and packaging.
The company also released a 2007 Environmental Statement (PDF).
The report is the first since Adidas acquisition of Reebok. Last year, the company discussed its attempt to to create a unified approach to managing and measuring the Adidas Group’s social and environmental impacts.
