If you are a goalkeeper, you are probably pretty familiar with Uhlsport. Over the past few months, we have covered some Uhlsport products including the extremely useful Kickschuh Instinckt soccer cleat, designed for both goalkeepers and outfield players. Well, the German giants have ensured they will be highly prominent at the upcoming World Cup in South Africa. Some of the stars that will be wearing Uhlsport gear include French No.1 Hugo Lloris, Spain’s Pepe Reine and Germany’s Jorg Butt. You can check out the Uhlsport WC Goalkeepers List or head over to Soccer.com to see the full range of Uhlsport goalkeeper gear.
Part of Uhlsports campaign is the slogan “We Take Action”.
“WE TAKE ACTION is the roof connecting all our ecological and social projects. Because progress also means responsibility for our fellow human beings and the environment.
The process of continuous re-engineering and adjustment of processes and/or components, with sustainable and social ideals in mind, is of great importance to us. This is implemented through our guidelines for suppliers, which have been in place for a long time, and are particularly concerned with the working conditions at the production locations, whilst entirely prohibiting child labour. We do whatever we can, within our scope of possibilities. We consciously look for certain parameters when selecting our suppliers, and we require certain assurances regarding health and safety and social responsibility in their dealings with the workforce in writing. Regarding sustainability, ecological issues are of particular importance when considering packaging and transportation. Nonetheless, and just because we want to make a difference, we are always looking for possibilities especially in the area of product development. This is an exciting area, where the area of football also yields new approaches every year, which we are always glad to adopt.”
