We only have one Earth to run on.
Since our founding in 1949, our purpose has been to help people achieve a sound mind in a sound body.
But in order to achieve a sound mind, we need a sound earth to run on. So, we are taking climate action —
reducing CO2 emissions, embracing recycled materials and using less resources, to continue bringing the
benefits of movement to the world we love to run in.
We are all learning, all the time
To highlight the importance of everyday sustainability, ASICS hosted a group of runners at an insightful, reflective environmental retreat at IslandWood in Bainbridge Island, Washington.
