Puma claimed it achieved the reduction in emissions by doubling its use of renewable energy in 2023, compared to 2022. The company also said it increased its use of less carbon-intensive materials and its logistics partner Maersk introduced low carbon shipment tariffs.

Using renewable electricity and investing in electric vehicles were also said to have contributed to the declining emissions.

Puma said its greenhouse gas emissions have fallen by 29% since 2017.

The news comes despite Puma reporting currency-adjusted sales growth of 6.6% to €8.6bn ($9.35bn) in 2023.

Anne-Laure Descours, chief sourcing officer at Puma, said: “We are very proud of the progress we have achieved on our sustainability journey in 2023, particularly when it comes to the reduction of greenhouse gases.”

The company has also made progress on its plastic and oceans targets, eliminating plastic carrier bags from its owned and operational stores.
