The United Nations Global Compact recently announced the addition of Emanuel Chirico, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of PVH Corp., to its board. Chirico was appointed by UN secretary general António Guterres. The board now comprises 24 representatives of business, civil society and other stakeholders from across the world, chaired by Guterres.

“We are delighted to welcome Emanuel Chirico as a new member of our board,” said Lise Kingo, CEO and executive director of UN Global Compact.

PVH Corp. owns brands like CALVIN KLEIN, TOMMY HILFIGER and Van Heusen. He has stressed philanthropy and corporate responsibility as key pillars of his business leadership, recognizing the opportunity to positively impact people and the environment against a backdrop of financial growth, according to a press release from the UN body.

In 2018, Chirico received Women’s Wear Daily’s CEO Creative Leadership Award and was named Person of the Year by the American Apparel & Footwear Association.

The UN Global Compact Board plays an important role in shaping the strategy and policy of the initiative, which acts as the United Nations flagship for responsible business action. (DS)
