V.F. Corporation

VF Corporation is committed to systematically and measurably reducing its environmental footprint, as well as working more broadly to preserve, protect and improve the health of our planet. This commitment is increasingly important as the risks and challenges associated with global climate change are becoming more clear.  Whether through availability of agricultural raw materials, price increases in energy, food and other commodities or devastation from extreme weather events, climate change is likely to adversely impact businesses and personal quality of life.

As a responsible corporate citizen with operations in more than 100 countries, we have a duty to address this challenge. VF has made a commitment to reduce our GHG by 5 percent by 2015 (from 2009 levels), and we are on track to accomplish this goal. We support the use of renewable energy, and are doing so at many facilities across our global organization.

VF also supports the international, national and local action being taken to mitigate the environmental damage caused by climate change. And we believe that collaboration across business sectors, governments and advocacy groups will be critical to accelerate technical advancements and smart policies that minimize the effects of climate change. We believe that through our participation in groups such as BICEP (Business for Innovative Climate Change Policy) and the Carbon Disclosure Project, we can have a greater impact on this important issue.

But we have more work to do. We are continuing to identify ways to further decrease our carbon footprint, reduce our use of natural resources, and develop a sustainable sourcing and product design model. Additionally, VF supports our associates and the communities in which we live and work in efforts to protect and preserve the environment.
