Carter's, Inc., the leading brand marketer of clothing specifically for infants and toddlers in North America, has stated in its annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report that it is committed to decreasing environmental impact. The corporation has committed to achieving net-zero emissions by the year 2040.

Recently, Carter's gained approval for science-based reduction goals, such as pledging to cut absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 50 per cent by 2030, relative to the base year of 2019. As part of this objective, Carter's will also engage 77 per cent of its suppliers for acquired goods and services to set science-based targets by 2027, according to a press release.

In 2021, Carter's will contribute $10 million to community activities, positively impacting 2 million children and families. The firm has committed to improving the quality of life for at least 10 million families by 2030.

In addition to nearly doubling the racial and cultural diversity at the vice president level, Carter's has pledged to launch a supplier diversity initiative to assist communities of colour.

Carter's has also prioritised the expansion of its eco-friendly Little Planet brand for it to become the most sustainable children's brand. In 2021, the Little Planet brand will introduce recycled polyester-based items.

Antonio Robinson, senior vice president of corporate social responsibility, said:

 "As the leading company serving families with young children, Carter’s seeks to inspire generations to raise the future and we continue to make important advancements to further our progress surrounding our sustainability, community and environmental objectives. Our annual CSR Report serves as a benchmark while reaffirming our continued commitment to driving our business forward, enhancing our community impact, and reducing our environmental footprint."
