Supporting local cooperation
Preserving local playing fields to have a long-term positive impact on the region is a key priority for new Decathlon locations. Our subsidiarity strategy (autonomy, responsibility and freedom) promotes local engagement, the implementation of environmentally-friendly local initiatives and a community-building role for each site.
Through our efforts to raise awareness about sustainable development – holding events where we help clean up local sports fields and assessing the impact our stores have on their surroundings – Decathlon helps ensure that future generations can enjoy sport and strengthens our ties with our neighbours. This encourages teammates and sports users to put the fifth pillar of our Decathlon Vision into practice: “Preserving the planet and its inhabitants to protect our purpose.”
