PVH pledges 35% greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 2030
Aug '17
PVH Corp has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 35 per cent by 2030, according to its ninth annual corporate responsibility (CR) report. Recognising its responsibility as one of the world's largest apparel companies, it aims to address the social and environmental impacts of the industry and contribute towards a fair and healthy future.

"We are incredibly proud of everything we have accomplished in 2016 despite the uncertainty and geopolitical volatility we faced and believe that our business contributions are helping address critical issues around sustainability," said chairman and CEO, Emanuel Chirico. "We continue to believe that corporate responsibility helps strengthen our organization by managing risk, maximising efficiencies and driving value in a rapidly changing world, and through our CR efforts we can continue to create value for both society and our stockholders," said Chirico.

In the report, PVH Corp has provided updates on its CR commitments and its three underlying strategic pillars: driving positive impacts for people, environment and the communities. The company has also taken the initiative to address global challenges collaboratively, including through membership in three UN-led initiatives —the UN Global Compact, the CEO Water Mandate, and the Women’s Empowerment Principles. PVH Corp has demonstrated its support for the UN’s sustainable development goals by working to align its CR commitments with the goals, covering issues such as clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, and inclusion and diversity.
