Letter from our CEO
If today's reality has shown us anything, it’s how quickly change can come. From the pandemic, to social justice, to the environment - the world is collectively bearing witness to critical change that will be historically important.
Since we released our last sustainability report, we’ve seen the dramatic impact of power in our world.
The power of a disease. Of a vaccine. The power of families giving up normalcy to keep people in their community safe. The power of a single action triggering a global movement to right the wrongs of racial inequality.
From my own perspective, as Vice President of Corporate Citizenship, I've been inspired by the power of perseverance that I've witnessed within Canada Goose to adapt overnight -- not only to protect employees, but to produce desperately needed items, including medical gowns and scrubs, for healthcare workers in North America.
Similarly, I've been inspired by the power of commitment that our employees have to continue our journey to sustainability. Even in an unusual year, we’ve made significant progress towards our aggressive sustainability goals, and it's largely due to the unwavering focus that our collective team shares around the world of Canada Goose.
And I'm continually inspired by the drive of the team here at Canada Goose to innovate in a way that benefits both our consumers and our planet. We’re constantly looking for ways to reduce our footprint without impacting the quality of our work, and we’re hitting those goals and adding new ones in our journey.
This year's sustainability report builds upon the hard work we started last year and expands upon it. We’ve upped our commitments and have stayed true to meeting our objectives.
We see the power in the possibility of positive change and are working hard to make it happen, for our company and our planet. We are excited to see it come to life.
