"FILA aims to execute sustainable value management for people, environment, and society to ensure growth as a global company."
FILA strives to grow as a sustainable sportswear manufacturer by protecting the human rights and diversity of its employees. It has four core values based on harmony, passion, innovation, and pride.
The company aims to execute sustainable value management for people, the environment, and society to secure sustainable growth. It wants to establish a transparent corporate eco-system.
FILA only uses a tiny proportion of sustainable materials such as recycled paper.
Most of the fabrics used by FILA are highly polluting synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, spandex, and acrylic.
The sportswear brand has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors and sets a clear minimum standard for supply chain partners.
However, FILA provides no information regarding how it chooses its network of suppliers.
It doesn't present any certification that would ensure social and labor standards, ethical and sustainable production.
FILA doesn't state if any audits are conducted to ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other important rights for workers in its supply chain.
FILA doesn't use any exotic animal skin, or hair, fur, angora. But it uses leather and wool to manufacture some of its clothing.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and wastes. More sustainable alternatives exist.
FILA measures its greenhouse gas emissions and plans to engage in energy-saving activities in the future.
It also tries its best to minimize the amount of product incineration and showed a reduction of 52% in 2019 compared to the previous year.
The company plans to increase its use of eco-friendly materials through product collaboration.
However, FILA doesn't show any measurement of its water usage, chemical release, pollution, or waste across its supply chain.
It doesn't have any clear sustainability goals, science-based targets, or timeline to improve in the future either.
