Newsweek Recognizes Under Armour on Most Trustworthy Companies 2022 List

In this first annual ranking, Under Armour ranks #2 in the Textile, Clothing, & Luxury Goods Industry

Trust builds great athletes, and trust runs deep at Under Armour. From trusting yourself to go the extra mile to trusting your teammates to step in when you need support, trust unites us and helps us Strive for More.


Newsweek has recognized Under Armour in their inaugural Most Trustworthy Companies 2022 list. In partnership with Statista, a German company specializing in marketing and consumer data, Newsweek ranked Under Armour #2 out of 16 total companies for the Textile, Clothing, & Luxury Goods category.


“Each and every teammate at Under Armour plays a role in bringing our purpose to life,” said Under Armour CEO Patrik Frisk. “Being recognized as one of America’s Most Trustworthy Companies speaks volumes to the passion and integrity our teammates bring forward in everything they do in both their professional and personal lives.”


With help from a survey of 50,000 U.S. residents, companies were evaluated across different elements related to customer, investor, and employee trust. Survey respondents answered questions about how companies engaged customers and treated their employees. Publicly traded U.S. corporations with $500 million or more in annual revenues made the list. Newsweek reviewed companies aligning to 22 industries, ranging from Banks, Energy & Utilities, Health Care & Life Sciences, and more.


Insights from the 2022 Edelman Trust Barometer showed how employee trust is the number one driver of trust. More specifically, many employees expect their employer to engage on societal issues and provide quality information. Under Armour’s ongoing and tangible actions to address issues like economic equality and community policing relationships are felt across the business.


As Under Armour continues to put its purpose at the forefront of all activities, the business will continue to make decisions grounded in doing what is right for their consumers instead of solely responding to the market and reacting to competitors.


Under Armour is committed to empowering those who strive for more, and the company’s values – Act Sustainably, Celebrate the Wins, Stand for Equality, Love Athletes and Fight on Together – serve as both a checklist for each of our programs and the qualities expected of every teammate.
