PUMA continues to organize annual round tables with suppliers globally. These roundtables are a platform for suppliers to raise and discuss issues that are relevant for creating sustainable workplace conditions as well as the protection of the environment. In 2016, we have opened up our round table meetings also to external experts and stakeholders for the first time. In total 312 suppliers attended the meetings where topics such as relevant legal updates, chemical management and PUMA’s sustainability strategy 10FOR20 were discussed.
The supplier round table meetings have become a platform for supplier representatives to directly engage with PUMA’s external stakeholders and service providers, enhancing their awareness of corporate responsibility issues on wider scale from organizations like the FLA, Better Work and local government representatives.
