Puma announces a reduction in CO2 emissions from its operations

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2022-05-02 14:00:09 – Germany

German sportswear giant, Puma, said that it has reduced its own carbon footprints between 2017 and 2021, and that it is on pace to continue cutting emissions when necessary.

According to a press statement from Puma, the company's carbon emissions fell by 88% in 2021 compared to the base year of 2017. It went on to say that during the two periods, it has managed to cut emissions in its supply chain by 12%.

Stefan Seidel, senior head of corporate sustainability, said that they revealed the data for their complete value chain for the first time, and they've made some meaningful progress toward fulfilling their climate targets in recent years.

Seidel added that their own emissions and those from purchased energy were cut by more than what is required to keep climate change below 1.5 degrees. They won't stop here; they'll keep improving in order to meet their 'Forever Better' sustainability strategy.

During that time, Puma said it focused on procuring 100% renewable energy through initiatives such as renewable electricity tariffs, electric business cars, and factory efficiency improvements.

Puma also credited the reduction in emissions to the use of less carbon-intensive raw materials, as it recently expanded the use of recycled polyester and aims to make nine out of ten goods from more sustainable materials by 2025.
