Sustainability Practices

Champs Sports takes wide-ranging measures toward sustainability to improve its products' social and environmental impact. It has committed to building on its progress and strengthening its vision for a more sustainable world.

Champs Sports uses a tiny proportion of organic fabrics such as organic cotton. It also uses recycled materials such as recycled polyester and regenerated nylon.

Most of the fabrics it uses are either natural without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, and more.

Champs Sports doesn't publish a list of all its manufacturers and processing facilities on its corporate website. It doesn't disclose how it chooses its network of suppliers.

Champs Sports manufactures its clothes in many East Asian countries where human rights and labor law violations still happen every day.

The clothing retailer doesn't show any labor certification standards that would ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other human rights for workers in its supply chain.

Champs Sports has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors. It assesses compliance with its Code of Conduct through informal visits or third-party audits with or without notice.

Champs Sports doesn't use exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But it uses leather and wool to manufacture many of its products.

These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.

Sustainability Goals

Champs Sports has committed to reducing the environmental impact of its products. It will achieve net zero by 2050 through science-based carbon emission reductions and off-setting initiatives.
