“Through this COVID-19 crisis, we’ve been given a unique opportunity to reimagine our future and rethink what kind of company we want to be for our customers, employees and shareholders. It’s clear that to deliver value to our stakeholders and communities, environmental sustainability needs to be a priority for our company,” said Pete Nordstrom, president and chief brand officer at Nordstrom, Inc. “We’re proud of the progress we’ve made to date but are also the first to admit we’ve got a long way to go. We’re pushing ourselves to be a better company and are pleased to share these sustainability goals as part of our first step on this new journey.”
Nordstrom has also granted $100,000 to The Nature Conservancy, to support programmatic work in its efforts to take on the planet’s biggest, most important challenges by focusing on priorities that science shows are the most urgent.
Additionally, Nordstrom has joined the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, furthering its commitment to making progress in its key impact areas of circularity and environmental impact of products and services.
Last August, Nordstrom announced its participation in the G7 Fashion Pact, a coalition of global luxury retailers working to identify and promote concrete goals to mitigate the environmental impact of the fashion industry across oceans, climate and biodiversity. The fashion retailer also launched Sustainable Style, the first of its kind shopping category offered by a US based multiline fashion retailer to help make it easy for its customers to engage circular and sustainable fashion choices while feeling confident that their contribution to battling climate change is meaningful and impactful.
Nordstrom, Inc is a leading fashion retailer based in the US. Founded in 1901 as a shoe store in Seattle, today Nordstrom operates 380 stores in 40 states, including 116 full-line stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico; 248 Nordstrom Rack stores; three Jeffrey boutiques; two clearance stores; six Trunk Club clubhouses; and five Nordstrom Local service concepts.
