REGULATED SUBSTANCES LIST (RSL)

To guarantee workers’ health and safety at their work station in a factory, we’ve produced two lists:
- a list of banned substances (RSL) in our products and for use in manufacturing.
- a list of chemical substances that we ban in factories' waste water (WWRSL)

These lists help to ensure users’ safety, as well as workers' health and safety in factories.They also aim to reduce pollution at a local level and the impact on the populations living in the area surrounding the factories.

International documents that may be in English.

Responsible sourcing of materials statement

As part of our activities, we at DECATHLON are committed to using more and more responsibly sourced materials that respect human rights and safety at work, while improving our impact on the environment, biodiversity and animal welfare.
You'll find our statements relating to cotton, wool, down, leather and wood. These statements are an integral part of our code of conduct. Our suppliers must comply with and take them into account within their supply chain.

Depending on DECATHLON's activities and external issues, these statements are subject to revisions.

GREEN CONSUMPTION PLEDGE

As part of the Green Deal, and its objective to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, the European Commission is launching the Green Consumption Pledge pilot project.

It brings together a number of companies from different business sectors that are making concrete commitments to reduce their carbon footprint and offer European consumers more responsible and sustainable solutions.

DECATHLON is one of the first companies to sign this initiative by committing to five themes: global carbon impact, carbon impact of products, eco-design, promotion of more sustainable practices and consumer information.

SUSTAINABLE FOOD TRANSITION : CODE OF CONDUCT

Food and sport are the two pillars of health, which is why Decathlon Nutrition wants to offer nutrition products adapted to each need and respectful of the planet. Aware that the food transition is one of the major challenges to be taken up by the world in the coming years, Decathlon Nutrition wishes to be involved in this sustainable food transition.

Fully committed, we have decided to sign the European Union Code of Conduct on Responsible Food Marketing and Commercial Practices. This Code defines the actions that the actors "between the farm and the fork" voluntarily commit to undertake in order to improve and communicate in a tangible way their performance in terms of sustainability.
