PUMA cuts CO2 Emissions from Offices, Stores and Supply Chain

April 29, 2022

We have just published our new Sustainability Report and would like to inform you about some of the milestones and goals we achieved. We managed to cut our own carbon emissions and those coming from our supply chain between 2017 and 2021. This is even though the business grew strongly during this period, as we are on track to reduce our emissions by what scientists say is necessary to avoid the worst consequences of climate change.

Our own carbon emissions and those from purchased energy dropped by 88% in 2021 compared to the company’s 2017 base year. But PUMA also managed to reduce emissions in the supply chain, the most carbon-intensive part of our business. Even though we recorded strong growth of 65% between 2017 and 2021, we cut CO2 emissions from our supply chain by 12 %. If adjusted for the sales growth, greenhouse gas emissions from PUMA’s supply chain fell by 46%.

We focused on purchasing 100% renewable electricity through renewable electricity tariffs and renewable energy attribute certificates and moving our company’s car fleet to electric engines, using more sustainable materials and efficiency improvements at a factory level to achieve this reduction.

“For the first time, we published the numbers for our entire value chain, and have made some real progress towards achieving our climate ambitions over the last years. Our own emissions and those from purchased energy were reduced by more than what is needed to do our part to keep climate change below 1.5 degrees. We will not stop here and continue to make improvements to live up to our Forever Better sustainability strategy.”

– Stefan Seidel, Senior Head of Corporate Sustainability

Using less carbon intensive raw materials is an important pillar of our sustainability strategy. In 2021, we expanded the use of recycled polyester to 55% in our Apparel products, as part of our strategy to use 75% recycled polyester in our Apparel and Accessories by 2025.

Overall, we want to make nine out of ten products from more sustainable materials by 2025. In 2021 this was already the case for six out of ten products.
