May 7, 2013 /3BL Media/ - The adidas Group published its 2012 Sustainability Progress Report, reiterating its commitment to transparency in sustainability performance reporting.

With its first sustainability report being launched in 2001, the adidas Group was the first company in the sporting goods industry to do so. This year’s report, the 13th in a row, takes a close look at the milestones set for the year 2012 and what the Group has done to achieve them.

Some highlights of the 2012 Sustainability Progress Report are:

  • Launch of the adidas DryDye collection, which makes the company the first in the market to apply the revolutionary DryDye technology that uses no water in the dyeing process.
  • Increased use of Better Cotton and as such moving closer towards the goal of using 40% Better Cotton by 2015, and 100% ‘sustainable cotton’ by 2018 across all product categories in all brands.
  • Production of the most sustainable adidas collection ever for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
  • Substantial increase in factory ratings – 86% of the company’s strategic suppliers now have a 3C-rating or better, and 37% have a 4C-rating or better.
  • Donation of more than 26,000 volunteer hours by adidas Group employees to community projects in 22 countries.
