NET ZERO & ESG STRATEGY in 2050
Implementation of Net Zero Carbon Emission Program
From the previous California forest fires, Texas blizzard,to flooding and shortage of water source, in just a few months, the phenomenon of drought and flooding,has prooven more on the climate crisis is now in progress.
The 76th United Nations General assembly will be assembled on September 20, 2021 and will return to face-to-face meetings for the first time. About 100 world leaders will be gathered in New York to focus on the epidemic, climate change and other issues for the meeting.
With 128 countries around the world declaring net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, small and medium-sized enterprises have to keep up as major brands and manufacturers has begin to request their suppliers to provide carbon emission data.
We are cooperating with Adidas to implement a carbon reduction plan, starting this year with the implementation of "carbon inventory" in hope to keep up the footsteps of the European Union to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
"Moving toward a low-carbon product range"
Many of our environmental initiatives and innovations also have a positive impact on our climate targets. Our ambition is that 90% of our articles will be sustainable by 2025. We define articles as sustainable when they show environmental benefits versus conventional articles due to the materials used, meaning that they are – to a significant degree – made with environmentally preferred materials. Getting to nine out of ten requires us to rethink how we design and create products. One example of this is the FUTURECRAFT.FOOTPRINT shoe: In collaboration with US running shoe manufacturer Allbirds, adidas developed its most climate-friendly performance running shoe ever, offering a limited number for sale. At just 2.94kg CO2e per pair, the running shoe is responsible for emitting 63% less CO2e than a comparable running shoe across its entire lifetime. To do this, the companies combined their most innovative and climate-friendly design principles and materials. For example, key materials used are recycled polyester, Tencel and EVA foam made with biobased content, derived from sugar cane. Only renewable energy is used to produce the shoe.
