The strategy creates a platform for each of PVH’s branded businesses – CALVIN KLEIN, TOMMY HILFIGER and Heritage Brands – to further accelerate their consumer-and product-centric sustainability efforts.

“Corporate responsibility has always been fundamental to how we conduct business.  Forward Fashion  represents a renewed sense of urgency to use the collective power of PVH to achieve transformative change at scale,” said  Emanuel Chirico, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, PVH Corp.  “The challenges and opportunities we face are bigger than PVH, but we are confident  Forward Fashion  will position us for success over the long-term, leading to more engaged associates, more loyal consumers and, ultimately, a more sustainable and responsible future for the fashion industry.”

FIFTEEN PRIORITIES WITH KEY TARGETS
Within the strategy’s three focus areas, 15 priorities have been selected based on where the company can make the greatest impact. For each priority, key targets have been set to ensure accountability, transparency and authenticity in how progress is tracked and reported.

Reduce negative impacts to zero

Increase positive impacts to 100%
PVH’s ambition is for 100% of its products and packaging to be ethically and sustainably sourced, and for 100% of its suppliers to respect human rights and be good employers.

Improve 1 million+ lives across the value chain
