Pioneering the future of work
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has become a key pillar of our sustainable growth strategy in China. adidas China strives to make a difference in the communities where it operates by supporting programs that truly meet local needs; embedding environmental sustainability in all products, processes and services; managing risks and social compliance; extending engagement internally and externally; and creating the best and most productive workplace.
To better manage our CSR performance, we have goals in two key impact areas: 1) environment and 2) social community investment. The environment KPIs include energy saving, carbon saving, water saving, municipal waste reduction and paper saving. For community investment targets, we have our own China goals that include both external goals (social impact) and internal goals (employee participation and motivation).
