// Puma to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 35% by 2030
// Puma also aims to reduce scope 3 emissions by 60%

Puma has announced it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions at its owned and operated facilities by 35 per cent by 2030.

The sportswear giant also aims to reduce scope three emissions, coming from purchased goods and services, by 60 per cent.

“Recent scientific reports have highlighted the need for urgent action, as global warming is happening at a faster pace than previously anticipated,” Puma head of corporate sustainability Stefan Seidel said.

“That is why Puma wants to be a part of the solution by setting a bold path towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”

Puma also plays a leading role in the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action introduced at the UN Climate Conference in Poland last year, in a bid to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

  1. I’d love to see how they propose to reduce Greenhouse gas emissions by 35%. I feel there’s someone there not completely understanding of science, industrial methodology, basic chemistry and physics.
    Plus, from a moral standpoint; I believe it’s a bare-faced lie to come out with these statements, be they in the corporate world or simply to gain favour with the consumer, at least without educating the consumer by detailing how they will achieve this. Or is it that rather they trade on the fact most consumers lead busy lives and have little or no time to fully understand these claims – a cynic, I’m sure, would assume so.
    If however, they are prepared to back these claims with significant investment in the downstream industrial process, then maybe their claims do hold water.
    The subject matter is very large and largely concerns growth, which goes the heart of the matter of may debunk sustainability claims.
