This report constitutes a separate combined non-financial report in accordance with sections 289b to 289e and 315b, 315c in conjunction with 289c to 289e of the German Commercial Code (HGB). This consolidated combined non-financial report consists of the chapter "Sustainability", the section "Culture" in the chapter "Our People" as well as the Corporate Governance Statement in the chapter “Group Essential Information”.

The reporting period covered is January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021. No restatements of information have been made in this report. We did recalculate the waste figures for PUMA in 2019 and 2020, which were corrected due to underreporting in those years. We have provided separate reports for PUMA SE and the PUMA Group within the “Our People” section only. Separate reporting of other sustainability data would not add any meaningful new information or value and would require significant additional resources, so we have omitted it here. Information about PUMA’s business model is set out in the Financial section of this Annual Report. We have not identified any most significant non-financial performance indicators according to §289c, section 3, number 5 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). This combined sustainability report has undergone a voluntary “limited assurance” with focus on accordance with the German CSR Implementation Act (CSR-RUG) by Deloitte.

Since 2003 PUMA’s sustainability reports are based on the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), which developed detailed and widely recognized standards on sustainability reporting. This report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option. This option enables us to report on the impacts related to our economic, environmental, social and governance performance. It includes topics that are material to PUMA’s business and our key stakeholders, and that constitute our sustainability targets. These targets have been systematically developed in accordance with the feedback from PUMA’s stakeholders.
