As part of its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Puma is getting heavily involved with the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, which was introduced at the UN Climate Conference in Poland last year. Now, the Germany-based sports giant has committed to reduce emissions from owned and operated facilities, as well as its energy needs (Scope 1 and 2 emissions) by 35% by 2030 compared to 2017. The company also aims to reduce Scope 3 emissions, coming from purchased goods and services, by 60% per Million € in sales between 2017 and 2030.
“We know that the fashion industry has a significant impact on the environment, but rapid growth in global apparel and footwear production shows no signs of slowing,” said Cynthia Cummis, Director of Private Sector Climate Mitigation at World Resources Institute (WRI), one of the SBTi partners. “We need more companies in the industry to follow PUMA’s lead and pursue comprehensive strategies to decarbonize and do their part to prevent catastrophic climate change.”
