Landscape Make it possible 1062x580

With hard work and a positive outlook, anything is possible. These values have driven our business from the start. Tommy Hilfiger started selling jeans out of the trunk of his car and never gave up on his belief that he would create one of the world’s most recognizable labels. His story is proof that if you put in the hard work, you can create opportunity in the face of any change. Today, we face some of the biggest challenges yet - from climate change to inequality and prejudice. But we can change the way we work and the clothes our consumers wear. Our vision is to create fashion that opens minds and closes loops. Find out more below about our long-term sustainability ambitions and the targets we are working on right now that will take us closer to making it possible.

TOMMY
CARES

Save the children Landscape 2250x1228

TOMMY CARES

In 2013, all our philanthropic activities around the world aligned under the global banner of TommyCares, as part of the PVH Cares charitable program. Tommy Hilfiger is actively involved in supporting causes around the world. Listed below are a few of our key partnerships, initiatives and charitable activities:

SAVE THE CHILDREN

Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organization for children. Its more than 14,000 employees work in 120 countries to save children’s lives, fight for their rights and help them fulfill their potential. The organization works to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and strives to achieve lasting change in their lives.


PVH has long supported the work of Save the Children and signed a five-year global partnership with the organization in 2014. Tommy Hilfiger works with Save the Children in Delhi, India to fight child labor in the garment industry, in addition to developing the quality of child protective services and supporting the admission of children in school systems. To date, over 1,000 children have enrolled in vocational training courses, schools, or learning centers we support. The program has also trained nearly 1,000 police officials on awareness of child labor in the garment industry, and over 3,000 people have received free medical check-ups within this program. In 2016, Save the Children and partner NGO, EFRAH reached out to 151 additional children through bridge course education, totaling 1.344 children.

WORLD WIDE FUND FOR NATURE

The World Wide Fund (WWF) works to conserve representative species and the most critical ecosystems. It focuses on helping to reduce the impact of human activities by transforming the most significant market forces, institutions, policies, and conservation practices. WWF was the first environmental group invited by the Chinese government to work within the country, and WWF has a bold conservation vision to protect one of the world’s most important rivers; Yangtze. TommyCares supports WWF in protecting the Yangtze river in China through various projects that include expanding protected areas for endangered species, safeguarding the health of freshwater ecosystems, and engaging local stakeholders on managing and utilizing natural resources in a sustainable manner.

WAR CHILD

War Child was founded in 1993 by filmmakers David Wilson and Bill Leeson. On assignment in the former-Yugoslavia during the Bosnian war, they were horrified by the violence and ethnic cleansing they witnessed, and its impact on children. Upon returning to the U.K. they were equally shocked to see the apathy and inaction of political leaders regarding the massacres on their European doorstep. War Child was born. Instead of relying on politicians, they looked to music and high-profile pop stars to help publicize the plight of children caught up in war. Their first War Child aid convoy delivered needed supplies to the besieged people of Mostar in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and set-up a mobile bakery that produced tens of thousands of bread loaves per day.


War Child’s projects have expanded to reach conflict zones across the world, wherever children are caught up in wars – whether they’ve lost their homes, families, schools, or been forced to take part in atrocities.


Since 2013, TommyCares supports War Child in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where children are extremely vulnerable and suffer from trauma due to armed conflicts. The supported project provides psychological support and improved access to quality education to 6.282 children and 109 adults from Kalehe community in the South Kiva region.

AUTISM SPEAKS

Autism Speaks is one of the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to researching causes, prevention, treatments and finding a cure for autism. It also raises public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families and society. Since 2010, the Tommy Hilfiger brand has supported World Autism Awareness Day with special programs in key stores across the country, including the annual “Light It Up Blue” fundraising campaign at its flagships on Fifth Avenue in New York City and Robertson Boulevard in L.A. The company sponsors additional events in North America through Autism Speaks each year. Additionally, Mr. Tommy Hilfiger and his wife Dee are both personally involved with the organization, and in 2012 they were appointed to the Autism Speaks Board of Directors.
