WHAT WE DO, WE SHARE
We want to spark movements for change that involve and inspire our stakeholders across the globe — our suppliers, partners, communities, customers, and workers. To do this, we strive for complete transparency regarding our achievements and our challenges.
VF’s green bond, the first for the apparel and footwear industry, was issued in February 2020 in accordance with the ICMA Green Bond Principles (GBP) 2018. In February 2021, VF published its Green Bond Impact Report, demonstrating full allocation of the net proceeds which totaled approximately €493 million. The proceeds were allocated to 13 eligible sustainability projects to advance VF’s environmental sustainability strategy.
VF’s focus on human rights is fueled by a commitment to work toward the betterment of people and our planet and be a force for good worldwide. In the 2020 Human Rights Report, we share due diligence efforts, some lessons we’ve learned along the way and a few stories about the lives we’ve touched along the way. The Report is aligned with the UN Guiding Principles Reporting Framework (UNGPRF) and covers our human rights activities and interventions during FY2020.
