  • Land Use Natural areas regulate our environment and provide goods and services that support livelihoods. Converting land for production of raw materials or building construction reduces the amount of services undeveloped land can provide to society and ecosystem.
  • Water In PUMA’s supply chain, water is used principally in the production of agricultural products such as cotton and in leather processes such as cattle feed and tanning. The extraction of water by business decreases the amount available to others and can reduce the benefits society and ecosystems derive from water.
  • Air Pollution Air pollutants include particulates, VOCs, and chemical compounds such as SO2, NH3, NO, and CO. These are emitted principally as a result of the burning of fossil fuels, as well as through the drying and processing of timber.
    GHG PUMA’s emissions arise from the burning of fossils fuels in electricity generation and transport, as well as emissions from land use conversion and cattle rearing.
  • Waste PUMA’s operations and supply chain produces a variety of different waste products. The impacts of waste disposal are dependent on the disposal method.
  • Environmental Profit & Loss

    The E P&L seeks to answer the seemingly simple question: How much would our planet ask to be paid for the services it provides to PUMA? In 2011, PUMA was the first company to develop an Environmental Profit & Loss Account (E P&L). This project was pioneered by PUMA to more effectively measure, manage, and reduce our environmental impacts, and is being scaled by our parent company Kering for all our sister brands.

  • Measuring Impact

    The PUMA E P&L is simply a means of placing a monetary value on the environmental impacts of our operations and along our entire supply chain. It provides a new insight for decision-making that allows us to take nature into account. The challenge for us is to reduce our impact on the environment as much as possible while continuing to deliver value to our customers – and looking for ways to return value to the environment.

  • Revealing Improvement Opportunities

    The findings of the E P&L transparently reveal where we need to direct our sustainability initiatives in order to make real improvements in reducing our footprint. As a result, we are looking into solutions to identify and innovate sustainable materials and products, and have started to engage in opportunities to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions more broadly.

  • Introducing Transparency

    By reporting the results of the E P&L we are being transparent about the extent of our environmental impacts. We hope the E P&L educates and engages our customers to understand how we affect the earth’s resources, what we are doing to improve, and how we can make better choices to lessen our impact.
