Decathlon in figures
Decathlon, an international corporation employing over 82,000 teammates, has a presence in 39 countries. For more than 40 years now we have been working to make sport accessible to all, upholding two values: Vitality and Responsibility.
In 2017 we continued to grow our business, expanding into 10 new countries: Colombia, Ghana, the Philippines, South Africa, Switzerland, Israel, Tunisia, Indonesia, Australia and the United States. We have opened 185 stores worldwide and we reach 250 million sports users. It was against this backdrop that
the company and all of our activities generated a total turnover of €11 billion (excl. VAT) in 2017, a 10.8% increase compared with 2016.
In 2017 we continued the process of implementing the Vision 2026 that began in 2016. The local strategies that align with the five pillars were turned into action plans, in accordance with the subsidiarity principle.
At the same time, the managerial transformation process unleashed our energy and boosted initiativetaking and empowerment throughout the company.
