In 2010, we established an Environmental Sourcing Strategy (ESS) to align the sustainability efforts and activities in our supply chain with those of the overall adidas Group Environmental Strategy 2015. Throughout 2011, we engaged with our suppliers to share and discuss with them our ESS, its direction and relevant targets and objectives. Key goals to be achieved through our ESS are to:
In order to be able to manage the environmental risks within our supply chain, we need to first understand them. To do that, we developed and implemented our Supplier Risk Assessment Tool and Environmental Assessment Tool, which rank our footwear, apparel and accessories & gear suppliers according to their level of environmental risk. This in turn has helped us to develop targeted training or capacity building programmes for our suppliers as well as appropriate standards and policies.Over the next few years, we will be focusing on data reporting and setting quantified targets for our strategic suppliers while ensuring traceability throughout the supply chain.
In 2011, working with industry organisations and other brands continued to be central in our efforts to deliver a sustainable supply chain. The SEA team worked on the development and piloting of the draft versions of the product index of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) and has provided specialist input into the development of the Global Social Compliance Programme’s environmental module.
