Policies and Standards

We have standards and policies in place that set the framework for our stakeholder interaction.

Labor Rights Charter

adidas has established standards and rules that specify the company's responsibilities towards its global workforce. These rights and rules are defined in the adidas Labor Rights Charter. The charter demonstrates the company’s commitment to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and is the guiding framework for several corporate level policies that put our commitment into day-to day practice. These policies are related to issues such as employee recruitment, development, equal opportunities and compensation and benefits.

To explain how we expect our suppliers to live up to our Standards, we have produced a number of supporting guidelines that detail our expectations for fair, healthy, safe workplace conditions and environmentally sound factory operations. They make the Workplace Standards understandable and practical, provide additional guidance for our suppliers, and help us work together to find effective solutions to workplace problems.
