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.
