Adidas AG said more than 60 percent of its products will be made with sustainable materials in 2021. From 2024 onward, Adidas is committed to using only recycled polyester.

Adidas said the increased use of recycled polyester, or sustainable cotton, is part of an objective to end plastic waste. Since 2018, the company has been using exclusively sustainable cotton.

“Sustainability is an integral part of the Adidas business philosophy. We have continued to invest in sustainability initiatives during the coronavirus pandemic and we will significantly expand our range of sustainable products in 2021. To this end, for example, we have worked with our suppliers to create the structures that make it possible to process recycled materials on a large scale. Not only does our commitment make Adidas more sustainable, but it also drives the development of the whole industry,” said Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted.
