In August 2014, SSC completed a peer benchmarking analysis of the athletic wear industry that examined the sustainability performance of five prominent brands: Adidas, Lululemon, Nike, Puma, and Under Armour. During this process, we focused on six different dimensions of sustainability with four categories as a part of each dimension:
-Governance - Materiality, Ethics, Risk, Communications
-Environment - Energy & Climate, Waste & Recycling, Water, Land Use & Biodiversity
-Workplace - Diversity, Health & Safety, Training & Education, Working Conditions
-Community - Philanthropy, Volunteering, Community Investment, Engagement
-Product - Life Cycle Management, Product Quality, Product Safety, Packaging
-Supply Chain - Materials Stewardship, Green Purchasing, Social Standards, Engagement
Not only did we assign four categories to each dimension, but for thoroughness we applied a three prong analysis to each dimension reviewing policies, programs, and performance to each category.
It is also important to note that SSC relies only on publically available data when conducting a peer benchmarking assessment.
