Case

VF

VF is an umbrella company that includes brands like Lee, Timberland, 7 For All Mankind, Vans, Napapijri, Eastpack, Kipling and Wrangler, making it one of the leaders in fashion.

VF devotes a lot of attention to sustainability and responsibility, especially as far as the future of the fashion industry is concerned. This encourages VF to keep pushing its companies to work as sustainably as possible.
Their efforts in this area rest on three pillars:

  • Planet: use resources (energy, materials and water) efficiently and as sparingly as possible
  • Products: promote initiatives for sustainable product design and development
  • People: enrich employees and their communities through actions and projects

The North Face provides us with a beautiful example, as the brand complies with strict regulations for the production of its pieces. Timberland also takes part in these initiatives by creating an environmentally conscious clothing line, Earthkeepers. You can read all about it on VF’s sustainability platform.
