World’s largest international sports retailer committing to a change
Decathlon UK is committed to lowering its carbon emissions by 53% by 2026 in an effort to make sports sustainable and reduce its carbon footprint. Decathlon’s product manufacturing has already been making significant changes like using more sustainable materials, moving its factories to new ones with renewable energies, and so on.
However, the fastest way to achieve the carbon emissions goal within the next five years is to begin the transition to a circular business model. In addition to making changes in the production line, Decathlon is developing new initiatives to support their linear sales and reduce their product impact.
We had the pleasure to interview Sharon Poulter, Commercial Manager and Lead of Rentals in Decathlon UK Sustainability Team, and hear more about how they plan to reinforce their core mission: get people more active in a sustainable way and reduce their impact on the planet.
