THROUGH EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEERING PROGRAMS, OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE EFFORTS, AND OUR FOCUS ON IMPROVING WORKER EMPOWERMENT THROUGHOUT OUR SUPPLY CHAIN.

We’ve been driving meaningful change as we make progress toward our bold 2025 goals. This includes completing 100,000 volunteer service hours by our employees around the world and providing access to worker empowerment programs for the suppliers who craft our products.
