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—reducing carbon emissions, embracing recycled materials and using less resources, to continue bringing the benefits of movement to the world we love to run in.
Our carbon footprint label
The new carbon footprint label is part of our continuing efforts to reduce our carbon emissions. We are measuring and sharing the carbon footprint of our products, allowing wearers to make decisions that not only benefit mind and body, but also the planet.
Our circular approach to addressing climate change
This means using fewer materials, reusing materials and making longer-lasting products.
Targets for improvement
2021: 90% of new running shoes contain recycled material✅
2030: 63% CO2 reduction across direct operations and supply chain vs. 2015
2030: 100% renewable energy across business facilities
2030: 100% recycled polyester commitment
2050: Net-zero carbon emissions
*ASICS defines "shoe's main upper material" as the material which covers the most surface area in the upper.
Planting seeds for a brighter tomorrow
The ASICS sunflower icon represents
our sustainability pledge and commitment to preserving the planet.
This icon can be found on:
- Shoes containing leftover materials or at least 30% recycled material in the shoe’s main upper material
- Apparel containing leftover material or at least 50% material from textile waste in the garment’s main material
In 2045, the United Nations will celebrate its 100th anniversary. VISION 2045 campaign is a documentary film series focused
on inspiring a better future for all. ASICS was selected as a representative from the sporting goods industry.
We are the first sports company to have our targeted emissions approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.
