Sports company Fila was able to produce 10,000 “sustainable” midsoles from 9,000 surplus footwear samples last year, according to its fourth annual sustainability report, writes Footwearbiz.
The document also discusses the implementation of a company-wide Supply Chain Task Force, as well as the establishment of “a new product circularity model”, plus the introduction of near-field communication tags in several of its apparel lines.
“Last year was particularly meaningful in that we further strengthened our mid-to-long-term strategies in all directions of sustainability management,” a group spokesperson commented, reaffirming the business’ commitment to continuing with its annual sustainability reporting.
Seoul-headquartered Fila made Todd Klein president for North America earlier this year.
