PVH Corp. has unveiled its 2022 Corporate Responsibility (CR) report, showcasing the evolution of its Forward Fashion strategy with a renewed emphasis on three key areas: accelerating climate action, advancing human rights, and championing inclusion and diversity.

These priorities are firmly grounded in the company's existing time-bound commitments.

The Forward Fashion corporate responsibility strategy, a cornerstone of PVH's overarching PVH+ Plan, has gained increased significance. This strategy aligns with the company's vision to transform Calvin Klein and TOMMY HILFIGER into the world's most sought-after lifestyle brands and to elevate PVH as one of the preeminent brand collectives within the apparel sector.

Rick Relinger, Chief Sustainability Officer of PVH Corp., remarked, "Our accomplishments in 2022 in expediting climate action, progressing human rights, and promoting inclusion and diversity are encouraging. Despite the strides we've taken thus far, our focus remains resolute on the demanding journey ahead to fulfill our enduring Forward Fashion strategy."

Highlighted excerpts from the report encompass:

  • Conducted inaugural climate risk scenario analysis and bolstered carbon accounting capabilities

  • Attained 60% of power utilisation for company-owned facilities through renewable energy sources

  • Teamed up with suppliers to establish bespoke greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets, along with actionable blueprints for goal achievement

  • Introduced PVH's pioneering sustainable supply chain financing initiative, affording suppliers preferential financing rates tied to their sustainability performance

PVH Foundation committed $10 million to the Fashion Climate Fund by the Apparel Impact Institute. This commitment facilitates suppliers' transition to renewable energy, enhancement of energy efficiency, phasing out coal from manufacturing, and expansion of sustainable materials utilisation.

Progressing Human Rights
