This post will list the highlights, but the report on ASICS work on sustainability is a detailed presentation that requires some focused reading. It’s important to note that all brands are working on different issues of sustainability. I’ve been writing on the site often that marketing and engagement with the community will be one of the most important factors in brand success as society is not asking the question, “What are you doing for the world outside of selling me kicks?”

Here are the highlights but the report supplies some very involved details about how ASICS will continue to push forward with reducing their carbon footprint and supporting a variety of important causes:
