Progress against targets
The table shows our progress against the priority targets we set ourselves for 2007 when our focus was on applying the harmonised social and environmental programme across all brands of the adidas Group for the first time. These targets were published in our Question and Answer booklet that we launched in early 2007. You can find this booklet and all our previous reports in the Reporting section of our corporate website.
For the purpose of systematically tracking progress against our published targets, the table excludes additional achievements that were made in other parts of our social and environmental programme in 2007.
|Ensure the consistent roll-out of our new programme standards across the supply chain.||Roll-out of major policies to all Group entities including:
|Finalise supplementary guidance materials and determine how we will train and support our suppliers.||The following supplementary guidance materials were largely revised and updated:
|Finalise the Group-wide compliance data management system so we can report on our social and environmental performance.||
|Fulfil our obligations as members of the Fair Labor Association.||All our obligations were met:
|Ensure Sourcing decisions are increasingly informed by the rating the supplier achieved in our Key Performance Indicator (KPI).||
|Become the employer of choice in our industry and our target group by becoming a ’world-class recruiter’ and by extending our ’emerging employee students/graduates’ programmes beyond brands, functions and borders.||
|Talent Management/Developing our people: Bring sustainability to our Group-wide programmes and monitor success, for example by conducting employee engagement surveys. Establish the adidas Group as a leader in talent management internally and externally.||
