Manager Sustainable Materials and innovation, adidas Group

Topic: Environmental Sustainability at adidas with a focus on supply chain 

--- 


PRESENTATION OVERVIEW:

Sustainability is as much a key feature in the supply chain as it is in the final product itself. Success cannot be achieved in one without success in the other. Philipp Meister, Manager Sustainable Materials and Innovation at adidas, a company that has a long history of managing sustainability in their supply chain and products, will examine the background to the work done at adidas and their achievements in this field. Philipp will speak about environmental initiatives and programs, ranging from work in the supply chain, to how adidas manages its own in-house environmental footprint for improvement. Many of the initiatives are based on collaboration with other industry partners, adidas being a strong believer that certain issues in the area of sustainability can only be improved as an industry. Finally Philipp will also discuss some of the challenges and opportunities adidas sees on the road to a more sustainable business environment.
