THE LIFE OF OUR PRODUCTS
REPORTS & DOCUMENTS
In 2022, raw material extraction and product manufacturing accounted for 78.2% of our carbon footprint, which is why it is essential that we prioritise actions at this level.
Designing and manufacturing our own products presents us with the opportunity to take action in reducing our impact on the environment by carefully considering the materials and processes we use.
Only significant impacts on the product's entire life cycle are taken into account.
To put it plainly: DECATHLON implements the most environmentally relevant solutions (recycled materials, type of dye, etc.).
Organically grown cotton
Our products have to meet numerous technical and quality requirements. The alternatives are not always mature technologies on the market. For example, we use organically grown cotton for some of our products, which is less productive. As a result, this type of cotton is less available on the market than conventionally grown cotton.
By the end of 2022, 23% of DECATHLON's turnover would come from products that have benefited from an eco-design approach.
