Transporting our products and encouraging eco-mobility
Worldwide, 2018 was the fourth-warmest year on record. The Earth’s surface is warming, and the consequences are becoming more and more obvious each year, prompting us to join forces and take action to reduce our carbon footprint.
The United Nations Environment Programme has concluded that the transport sector is largely responsible for air pollution and that it is the source of 24% of all greenhouse gas emissions. It is vital that we combat the causes of climate change by reducing net emissions of greenhouse gases linked to transport (by rail, air, road, sea, etc.).
Decathlon is working to develop alternatives to limit our impact and promote sustainable mobility. Our company is focusing on three areas:
- the transport and storage of merchandise
- travel by customers and teammates to reach our stores, logistics platforms and offices
- the promotion of soft mobility in users’ daily lives
