At PVH, Corporate Responsibility (“CR”) is central to how we conduct business, as we recognize both the opportunity and the responsibility for business to take a lead role in addressing pressing global issues. As we continue to embrace change and position our company for long-term success, we believe that CR will help us achieve sustainable growth by managing risk, maximizing efficiency and driving value. Through our collective efforts, we seek to create value for both society and our business.
As one of the largest global apparel companies, we are guided by our values and committed to addressing social and environmental issues, with a focus on those that matter most to us, our approximately 36,000 associates worldwide, our other stakeholders and the apparel industry. In particular, we aim to drive positive impacts throughout our value chain – from Source to Store – empowering people, preserving the environment and supporting the communities where we work and live.
To drive positive impacts from Source to Store, our CR strategy consists of ten commitments. These commitments align with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”), covering issues such as clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, and inclusion and diversity. Further, our strategy places a strong emphasis on the need to move beyond compliance to achieve sustainable protection of the rights, dignity and livelihoods of the nearly one million workers in PVH’s supply chain. Increasing our focus on our environmental footprint and partnering with our suppliers to reduce environmental impacts across our supply chain is a top priority. As the world continues to change rapidly, we maintain our unwavering commitment to CR, as we believe that we can better drive progress in the areas that will have positive business, industry, and global impacts.
