Decathlon Plans to Use Eco-Design, Labeling to Reduce Product Impact by 20% Per Year

by Sustainable Brands
August 4, 2016

Product-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions represented 74 percent of sports retailer Decathlon’s total emissions in 2015. With a new goal to stabilize its emissions by 2019, the company estimates it will need to reduce product-related impacts by 20 percent per year if it is to meet its target. Decathlon says its design teams have taken up the challenge and are progressively integrating environmental criteria into the quality-price combination of all of its products.

The retailer’s latest sustainability report details its commitments for 2015-2019 and the strategies it will take to address five key areas:

- Team member happiness at work through responsibility and diversity, with a focus on training and projects promoting equality and diversity within the company;
- Decent work and economic growth, including improving the working conditions provided by subcontractors;
- Fight against climate change, with a new commitment to stabilize emissions to 5.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) by 2019;
- Clean water and sanitation, carrying out inspections of subcontractors’ water management; and
- Responsible production and consumption, particularly in terms of cotton use, with a new commitment to use only sustainably produced cotton by 2020.
