McDavid seeks to embed corporate responsibility into the stewardship of our core business activities. We incorporate social and environmental thinking in our planning, supply chain and business operations. We encourage employees to volunteer with community partners and we seek to combine our expertise and competencies with those charity and community groups so we can bring extra benefit to the communities in which we operate. At all levels of the company we recognise the importance of preserving natural resources, reducing waste, and minimizing its environmental impact, while also creating high-quality, innovative products for athletes.

Some of the key sustainability principles that guide the McDavid brand include:
