A better world in our vision—PUMAVision—would be safer, more peaceful, and more creative than the world we know today. The 4Keys is the tool we have developed to help us stay true to PUMAVision, and we use it by constantly asking ourselves if we are being Fair, Honest, Positive, and Creative in everything we do. We believe that by staying true to our values, inspiring the passion and talent of our people, working in sustainable, innovative ways, and doing our best to be Fair, Honest, Positive, and Creative, we will keep on making the products our customers love, and at the same time bring that vision of a better world a little closer every day.</p> <p><strong>PUMAVision PROGRAMS</strong></p> <p>The PUMAVision looks ahead to a world that is safer, more peaceful and more creative for the generations to come. Through the programs of puma.safe, puma.peace and puma.creative, we are providing real and practical expressions of this vision.</p> <p><span class="inline-image-wrapper ui_animateFigureCaption"><a href="http://www.creativeafricanetwork.com/page/2995/en"> <img src="http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/gsbt/image/895/2995-310-126.jpg" height="126" width="310" alt="" title="puma.safe.jpg" playable="1"/> </a><span class="caption caption-inline"><span class="title"><a title="Click to get a larger image - puma.safe.jpg - Creative Africa Network" href="/page/2995/en">puma.safe.jpg</a></span> <span class="caption-sep">-</span> <span class="caption-body">puma.safe logo</span></span></span></p> <p>Under this banner, we are bringing together all of our longstanding work on environmental issues and decent work in decent workplaces, and combining it with new initiatives that will drive us to cleaner, greener, safer and more sustainable systems and practices.

The first puma.creative project was the support of the exhibition “30 Americans” at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, Florida, during Art Basel Miami Beach 2008. Both Art Basel Miami Beach and the important “30 Americans” exhibition challenged our understanding of the synergy between art and design, music, style, and fashion, and was a perfect fit for the expression of PUMAVision’s creative initiative. The sponsorship of Hussein Chalayan’s retrospective at the Design Museum in London further grounded puma.creative’s serious commitment to supporting art and culture. In London we also sponsored the Central Saint Martins graduate fashion show and subsequent auction benefiting the PUMA Central Saint Martins Bursary Award.</p> <p><!--[embed youtube Bq4ZUi3-li0&amp;feature=channel_page]--><object width="407" height="306" class="inline-object wiki-youtube"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Bq4ZUi3-li0&amp;feature=channel_page&amp;fs=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><embed class="inline-object wiki-youtube" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Bq4ZUi3-li0&amp;feature=channel_page&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" wmode="transparent" width="407" height="306"></embed></object><!--[/embed]--></p> <p>We established and continue to develop the Creative Africa Network (CAN), an online social networking website and cultural directory that enhances, celebrates and honors existing African and Africa-related cultural networks within and beyond the continent. CAN also includes the CAN Ambassador awards, awarded to 17 individuals in 2009 for dedicated service to the arts. As part of our commitment to a more creative world, PUMA will continue to support artists, art projects, and exhibitions globally through puma.creative.</p> -
