Responsibility is an important word for us at INTERSPORT. We recognize that the long-term success of our business is intrinsically linked to our protecting the rights of people, animals and the environment.
We understand that the world is facing challenges in these areas. The Sustainable Development Goals adopted in September 2015 represent a call to action to governments and economic agents like INTERSPORT and should be used as a blueprint for a better future.

When examining international production orders, we take into account not only quality, but also the social and working standards of the factories producing our products. This is a particularly important issue with respect to production plants in developing and so-called ‘risk countries.’
INTERSPORT is an active member of amfori BSCI and engages with suppliers and producers in improving working standards within the supply chain. The amfori BSCI Code of Conduct is an integral part of the commercial agreement INTERSPORT has with all business partners. The amfori BSCI Code of Conduct is based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Children’s Rights and Business Principles, UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, OECD Guidelines, and UN Global Compact and International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions and recommendations relevant to improving working conditions in supply chains.
Health and fitness is the heart of our business.
Promoting a healthy and active lifestyle is our philosophy, and we wholeheartedly believe that a passion for sports is not something reserved for the privileged few, but something for everyone. We bring Sport to the People.
We are committed to improving the environmental performance of our supply chain, which is why INTERSPORT, along with other industry partners, has joined the amfori BEPI program. Amfori BEPI provides us with monitoring tools that target 11 environmental performance areas. For more information, visit the amfori BEPI website.
Many products produced under brands exclusively distributed at INTERSPORT offer sustainable solutions either in the raw materials, technologies or production processes.
We are committed to developing quality products for consumers that do not compromise the “five freedoms” of animal welfare and strive to adhere to these freedoms throughout the supply chain. Animals must be treated with respect and be protected from unnecessary suffering and harm. No animals shall be mistreated in the sourcing of raw materials or in the production of products. INTERSPORT demands compliance to these standards of all partners. Please find the full details of our animal welfare policy here.
