Schneider Electric, the global leader in sustainability services, announced it has been selected by VF Corporation to provide a comprehensive sustainability solution across all of its brands. Schneider Electric’s technology platform, Resource Advisor, will allow VF to track and report energy, water, and emissions data, as well as additional sustainability-related metrics, across its global footprint of operations and products.

Through Resource Advisor, VF will be able to identify, encourage, and amplify projects globally to reduce costs, reduce resource impacts, improve employee engagement, and additional sustainability related activities across VF’s impressive suite of brands including The North Face, Timberland, Eastpak, Vans, Nautica, Wrangler, and more. 

“The ability to have instant access and visibility of our sustainability activities from not only a country, product, or brand-specific view, but also from an enterprise level, will allow us to track the effectiveness of these activities,” said Letitia Webster, Global Director of Corporate Sustainability, VF Corporation. “Armed with this information in a global platform, we will be able to share best practices and lessons learned quickly across the organization.” 

Additionally, VF will have the ability to monitor and manage additional sustainability metrics as the program expands, accommodating business changes and ultimately adding product materials and supply chain data. This will provide VF with immediate access to analytics across their global product inventory for reporting and product rating purposes. 

Mike Fraser, Vice President of Sustainability Development for Schneider Electric stated, “We are thrilled to team with VF Corporation as they seek to further grow their sustainability program. 

The flexibility and robust functionality of Resource Advisor makes it the perfect solution to drive VF’s sustainability initiatives.”

VF Corporation is a global leader in branded lifestyle apparel with more than 30 brands. The company's top six brands are The North Face, Wrangler, Timberland, Vans, Lee and Nautica; other brands include 7 For All Mankind, Bulwark, Eagle Creek, Eastpak, Ella Moss, JanSport, Kipling, lucy, Majestic, Napapijri, Red Kap, Reef, Riders, Splendid and Smartwool.

As a global leader in sustainability services, Schneider Electric provides the strategy, technology, and implementation necessary to drive successful sustainability programs and accelerate business performance.
