adidas 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.
