With 103 stores in India and more than 1,600 across the globe, Decathlon, a French sporting goods retailer, is committed to RE 100 by 2026. The brand is engaging with its suppliers to move to renewable forms of energy. All its key suppliers in India are working on reducing their emissions from energy with actions such as onsite energy, PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) or moving to biomass.
The brand is striving to reach -53 per cent carbon intensity target by 2026 to move towards a ‘low carbon +1.5°C’ world,
In 2022, over 1,300 of Decathlon’s products will be eco-design of which over 500 are made in India. Eco-design is an approach that aims to reduce the environmental impact of a product over its entire life cycle while preserving its qualities of use. This is achieved by integrating the product’s environmental impact into its design from the very beginning, taking into account the product’s entire life cycle. The company is committed to transform all its products into eco-design by 2026.
