We recognize our responsibility to be accountable to our stakeholders, which involves the regular and open reporting of our sustainability performance.

From 2000 until 2016, adidas has been annually publishing its progress on set targets in standalone Sustainability Reports, as well as in a separate Environmental Report.

As of 2017, we integrated material non-financial information into the adidas Annual Report. Non-financial information is covered by a separate limited, and partially also reasonable assurance engagement based on the International Standard on Assurance Engagements ISAE 3000 (Revised) issued by the IAASB. adidas also applies global reporting standards such as the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Sustainability Accountability Standards Board (SASB) to inform its external non-financial reporting. We also acknowledge the value of climate-related reporting and are aiming to stepwise include the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations that enable companies to improve reporting of climate-related financial information, especially climate-related risks and opportunities.  

We regularly disclose additional information to public-facing social and environmental benchmarks and reporting platforms. We also publish important sustainability updates about our work throughout the year on our corporate channels, including our corporate website. A key element is the publication of our global supplier factory lists which are updated twice a year.
