New Balance Sustainability Actions

New Balance Foundation

The establishment of New Balance Foundation by Jim and Anne Davis in 1981 demonstrated tremendous foresight as New Balance embraced Responsible Leadership and established philanthropic goals focused on supporting vibrant communities and promoting good health for all. The Foundation remains steadfast in its mission to drive positive change in our global communities with an enduring commitment to preventing childhood obesity and championing the future success of today’s youth. To that end, New Balance Foundation has donated more than $100 million dollars to non‑profit organizations.


We live in a community greater than just our company. Our products - and the materials that go into making them - are processed with energy, water, and chemicals in factories around the world. We are working hard to understand and minimize negative environmental impacts of our supply chain operations - with an eye towards the future where we leave zero impacts and even bring positive change to the local environment.


New Balance is moving towards a low carbon future by reducing energy consumption in our own facilities and throughout our global supply chain, and by actively investing in renewable energy. We are in the process of completing our first company carbon footprint, which will serve as the basis for prioritizing future initiatives and setting company wide targets.
