Dec '16
US apparel marketer PVH Corp has joined more than 9,000 other corporate members in their engagement with the United Nations, by signing the UN Global Compact. PVH and its Tommy Hilfiger business, have also signed the CEO Water Mandate, an initiative to mobilise business leaders to advance water stewardship and improve access to clean water.

According to the clothing marketer, which also has the Calvin Klein brand in its portfolio, earlier this year, it signed the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles to reinforce its commitment to gender equality in the workplace.

This year, PVH also celebrated the 25th anniversary of ‘A Shared Commitment’, its code of conduct for business partners, which helped usher in a new era of social compliance in the apparel industry, when it was published in 1991.

PVH has also been an affiliate of the Fair Labour Association, a multi-stakeholder initiative uniting companies, universities and civil society organisations to protect workers’ rights and find solutions to industry-wide labour issues, since its inception. (AR)
