We believe we have a responsibility to be an active participant in the communities where we operate, extending well beyond the employment opportunities we create. Our large scale, global reach and commitment to operating responsibly position us very well to deliver positive and sustainable impacts for creating stronger and healthier communities.
As one of the largest apparel manufacturers in most of the regions where we operate, we are in the unique position of being able to create economic development opportunities by favoring local suppliers and creating opportunities for new businesses to flourish.
Through our community engagement program, our investments are focused on improving local infrastructure and enriching people’s quality of life by advancing access to education and fostering a healthy and active lifestyle. We partner with community organizations to target and respond to the most pressing needs in the regions where we operate.
We understand that creating stronger communities will fuel our future growth. That is why we invest in developing local talent, hiring local management and prioritizing local suppliers, wherever possible, to drive sustainable development.
We invest in community projects that are relevant to who we are as a business and to what is important to us. We also seek to engage our employees in many of our community initiatives.
