The production facilities comply with local laws and regulations, and have HSE programmes that are managed by designated HSE coordinators and staff. Sites in Germany and China have been certified in accordance with EMAS II and ISO 14001. Corporate Guidelines for Health, Safety and Environment have been produced at Group level to support facility managers and HSE coordinators.
In 2007, there were no legal prosecutions reported for environmental liabilities at the Group’s own sites.
Below are examples of how we manage environmental issues at our own sites.
Global Technology Center in Scheinfeld, Germany
This small-scale athletic footwear factory produces premium football boots and made-to-measure shoes, but also operates a warehouse and a flock transfer printing department. Scheinfeld was the first factory in the sporting goods industry to obtain certification according to EMAS - in 1998 - and it was re-certified under the EMAS II scheme in 2001, 2004 and has successfully undergone this exercise again in 2007.

adidas-Suzhou, part of our subsidiary in China, produces garments for the international and local market. The factory has been certified to ISO 14001 since 2002. The production manager, plant manager, office manager and administrator are qualified internal ISO 14001 auditors.
TaylorMade-adidas Golf, Carlsbad, USA
Starting in 2005, our site in Carlsbad, California began implementing the so-called 6S approach (Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardise, Safety, Sustain), which led to restructuring the office and workplace layout and an improvement in its environmental, health and safety performance. This commitment to continuous improvement was further supported during 2005/2006 by an engineering risk assessment conducted by a European-based consultancy. Recommendations included using a noise dosimeter, installing air circulation systems and various ergonomic aspects.
In 2007 an energy audit took place at this site. It re-confirmed that the most energy-efficient light bulbs are already in use, and that they can also be considered environmentally-friendly because of their particularly low mercury content. Furthermore, the air conditioning was checked and found to be very energy-efficient.
