Publish traceability maps for 100 of our brands’ most iconic products by December, 2021
Trace five of VF’s key materials through 100% of our supply chain by 2027
Traceability gives us visibility into every aspect of our supply chain, identifying areas that need to be addressed and improved. It’s no easy process, given that our global supply chain spans across approximately 40 countries and includes thousands of suppliers, but we continually strive to achieve full traceability from raw material to retail.
In 2018, we published product-sourcing maps for nine of our most iconic brands. Currently, we’re extending our transparency mapping to cover more VF brands and their best-selling products. By the end of 2021, we intend to have over 100 products mapped from origination to store.
Ultimately, we’re working toward full traceability of all VF products and the creation of a knowledge base that can be shared with our stakeholders and partners in order to collaboratively drive positive impact. We believe the benefits reaped from traceability are boundless.
