Asics Corp. has been named to the Supplier Engagement Leaderboard by global environmental impact non-profit CDP in recognition of its efforts to engage with its suppliers on climate change.

The company has been recognized for its actions and strategies to reduce emissions and manage climate risks in its supply chain over the course of the past reporting year. Over 4,800 companies in total were assessed by CDP and given a Supplier Engagement Rating. Each rating is based on responses provided by the company regarding governance, targets, scope 3 emissions, and value chain engagement and their overall CDP climate change score. Asics is among the top 3 percent of organizations assessed by CDP, one of just 160 companies on the Leaderboard this year.

In addition to the recognition from CDP, Asics has also been selected as a component company of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), created by S&P Dow Jones (US) and rating company RobecoSAM (Switzerland), as well as the FTSE4Good Index Series / FTSE Blossom Japan Index, compiled by FTSE Russell (UK).
