Our circular approach to addressing climate change
This means using fewer materials, reusing materials and making longer-lasting products.
Create products that use fewer resources
Use recycled, bio-based and water-efficient options
Source renewable energy and manufacture efficiently and cleanly
Constantly improve quality so products last even longer
5. New Life
Take items back for reuse and recycling
Targets for improvement
✅ 2021: 90% of new running shoes contain recycled material
2030: 63% CO2e reduction across direct operations and supply chain since 2015
2030: 100% renewable energy across business facilities
2030: 100% recycled polyester commitment
2050: Net-zero emissions
Polyester Fabric from Recycled PET Bottles
Polyester production from recycled PET bottles emits less CO2e and uses fewer fossil resources than traditional polyester production.
At least 70% of the GEL-CUMULUS™ 25 shoe's main upper* is made with polyester fabric from recycled PET bottles.
Recycled Fabric from Textile Waste
Less than 1% (estimated) of material used to make all clothing is recycled — we aim to change that.
The GEL-LYTE™ III OG SHIGEN shoe’s main upper* is made using 60% recycled felt from textile waste.
We use bio-based materials, which helps reduce the consumption of fossil resources.
The GEL-KAYANO™ 30 shoe features FF BLAST™ PLUS ECO cushioning, which is made with at least 20% bio-based material.
Solution dyeing will help reduce carbon emissions from our dyeing by 45% and reduce water usage by 33%.
The GT-2000™ 11 shoe’s sock liner is made using a solution dyeing process.
These images are artistic interpretations of recycled or sustainable materials. They may not be actual representations of the specific ASICS product or material used.
*ASICS defines "shoe's main upper material" as the material which covers the most surface area in the upper.
Planting seeds for a brighter tomorrow
The ASICS sunflower icon represents our sustainability pledge and commitment to preserving the planet.
This icon can be found on:
Shoes: containing leftover materials or at least 30% recycled material in the shoe’s main upper material
Apparel: containing leftover material or at least 50% material from textile waste in the garment’s main material
In 2045, the United Nations will celebrate its 100th anniversary. VISION2045 campaign is a documentary film series focused on inspiring a better future for all. ASICS was selected as a representative from the sporting goods industry.
We are the first sports company to have our targeted emissions approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.
