adidas is being recognized for its outstanding contributions to protecting the environment including the company’s commitment to LEED and reducing its carbon footprint. Adidas’s progressive sustainability roadmap and campaign “Sport Needs a Space,” includes a holistic approach that looks at spaces where sport is made (all places where products are created, designed, manufactured and shipped), sold (own retail, wholesale and e-commerce) and played (from the indoor court to the outdoor pitch all over the world).
