Under Armour has released its 2021 Sustainability & Impact Report and outlined a new sustainability framework. The report prioritizes goals and targets that will help the company reduce the environmental footprint associated with their products and operations, all while accelerating their social and community impact.
Colin Browne, Under Armour Interim President and CEO, says: "As a global innovator and leader in athletic performance apparel, footwear, and accessories, we believe Under Armour has an important role to play in addressing impending challenges facing our society, industry, and planet. This belief informs our innovation methods and compels us to rethink, reinvent, and reimagine our products and how we make them in our work to support athletes and protect people and our shared planet."
Under Armour's sustainability approach is 'What's Under Matters,' and it reflects their mission to make athletes improve by focusing on performance-driven innovations that utilize sustainable materials and are designed for recyclability, durability, and quality.
The report also outlines 23 goals and targets designed to drive company progress, and it's also aligned with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and Sustainable Accounting Standard Board (SASB) industry standards.
