Adidas is owned by Adidas Group.

Its environment rating is 'it's a start'. It uses a medium proportion of eco-friendly materials including recycled materials. It has set a science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated from its own operations and supply chain but it is unclear whether it is on track to meet its target. It has conducted research with industry bodies on the impact of microplastics. There is no evidence it has a policy covering biodiversity.

Its labour rating is 'it's a start'. Some of its supply chain is certified by FLA Workplace Code of Conduct including all of the final stage of production. It received a score of 51-60% in the 2021 Fashion Transparency Index. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in most of its supply chain. It discloses policies to protect suppliers and workers in its supply chain from the impacts of COVID-19.

Its animal rating is 'not good enough'. It has a formal animal welfare policy aligned with Five Freedoms but has no clear mechanisms of implementation. It uses leather and down. It states that it sources wool from non-mulesed sheep but there is no evidence on how it is enforced. It does not use angora, fur or exotic animal skin. There is no evidence it traces any animal products to the first stage of production.

Adidas is rated 'It's a start' overall.
