From our factory floors to the frigid expanse of the polar regions, where we’re bearing witness to the impact of climate change, such as the loss of glaciers, melting permafrost and the opening of the Northern Passage, we’re finding better ways to care for the world today. Less waste. Fewer resources. More reuse. Guided and inspired by the forces of nature and by the indigenous people who have respectfully lived in harmony with those forces for thousands of years, we are determined to achieve more with less and do our bit to repair the gap between humanity and the natural world.Download the report
We commit to net zero direct and indirect (Scope 1 and 2) greenhouse gas emissions by 2025, or sooner.
We pledge to eliminate single-use plastics in all facilities we own or control, by the end of 2020.
We commit to offsetting our annual carbon footprint by 200% on our journey to 2025.
Managing our Environmental Impact
To reduce our environmental impact, we are focusing on those areas that offer the greatest potential. Our five-year Sustainable Impact Strategy sets out goals to: reduce our carbon emissions through increased energy efficiency, increase our use of renewable energy, and reduce both waste and plastic use.
Lowering our Carbon Emissions
We commit to achieving net-zero Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions and increasing our use of renewable energy by 2025, or sooner. We believe this ambitious goal supports the urgent global movement to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

People are concerned about waste in the apparel industry. We are, too.
We are transitioning to more circular business models where the goal is to eliminate the concept of waste, and have made it a goal to implement recyclable and reusable materials in all possible areas of our operations. In 2019, we initiated this by developing a waste audit and action plan in the facilities we own and control, knowing that these efforts will also help us to reduce our carbon emissions. We’ve already begun by tackling waste related to plastics, product packaging, surplus fabric, products that don’t meet our quality standards, and warranty returns. Additionally, as part of our Sustainable Working Group, we are forming a Packaging Working Group that will conduct a comprehensive review of all packaging use, from factory to floor, and implement waste reduction strategies with an effort to shrink our environmental impact.
