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 Sound Mind, Sound Body, we need a sound earth to run on.
So we’re taking action— working to reduce carbon emissions, embracing recycled materials and using less resources, to continue bringing the benefits of movement to the world we love to run on.

Our materials

Polyester Fabric from Recycled PET Bottles

Polyester production from recycled PET bottles emits less CO2e and uses fewer fossil resources than traditional polyester production.

At least 70% of the GEL-CUMULUS 25 shoe’s main upper* is made with polyester fabric from recycled PET bottles.

Bio-Based Materials

Bio-based materials are intentionally made from substances derived from living (or once-living) organisms. These natural resources can be drawn upon to create fabrics for textiles or compounds for sole components. Sugarcane and cellulose nanofiber are some examples.

The GEL-NIMBUS 26 shoe features FF BLAST PLUS ECO cushioning, which is made with at least 20% bio-based materials. 

Solution Dyeing

Solution dyeing will help reduce carbon
emissions from our dyeing by 45% and reduce water usage by 33%.

The SOLUTION SPEED FF 3 shoe’s sock liner is made using a solution dyeing process.

The ASICS sunflower icon represents our sustainability pledge and commitment to preserving the planet.
