Ourvision_Daniel-image_640x427


Dear All,


We believe that the future success of our business is dependent on bringing sustainable practices into all elements of our operations. Our mission is to be one of the leading sustainable designer lifestyle brands through how we create our product, manage our operations and connect with our community and our stakeholders.


As part of the Corporate Responsibility program of our parent company PVH Corp., we have established three principles and 10 commitments that, together across the entire organization, we are working to achieve by 2020. This program embraces the core values and spirit of the Tommy Hilfiger brand: it is inclusive, focused on quality and inspires us to make our sustainability ambitions an integral part of our business, every single day.


Regards,

Daniel Grieder
CEO, Tommy Hilfiger and PVH Europe

The discussion in this section focuses on our own direct operations and those of our parent company, PVH Corp. While we do impose significant standards on our business partners, such as the PVH Corp. Shared Commitment code of conduct, the initiatives we talk about are our own and, generally, we do not address what our licensees, franchisees and other partners may be doing in regard to their operations.

TARGET

•  By 2020, we aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across our operations by
    20% compared to 2014 levels.



MILESTONES

•  Early 2016, we completed a carbon footprint asssessment for all of our
    company-operated stores and facilities, gathering information from over 500
    sites. We are now examining certain indirect aspects of our footprint, such as
    business travel, upstream and downstream logistics.


•  We assessed four Tommy Hilfiger stores in Europe with the aim of creating
    Sustainable Store guidelines for all of our stores.


•  To date, approximately 60% of our company-operated North American and
    European retail stores have converted to using energy-efficient LED track
    lights, and we will continue to roll-out this program for all re-fits and newly-
    built stores.


•  In 2015, we launched a digital showroom – an innovative concept that reshapes
    the way brands showcase and sell product at market. The showroom aims to
    decrease our environmental impact by reducing the need for sample
    production, logistics, utilities and building space.


•  Our new central PVH Europe warehouse has achieved a BREEAM Very
    Good certification.


•  In 2015 in North America, PVH improved freight consolidation in partnership
    with SmartWay. Through this program we can record the output of hauling
    vehicles, such as idling information and fuel consumption, an effort to
    improve efficiencies.

TARGET

•  By 2020, we aim to reduce total carton consumption (by weight) by 25% and
    ensure that the materials used are sourced more sustainably.



MILESTONES

•  We have executed a pilot project with our North American business to explore
    alternative options for our international freight packaging.


•  Our warehouse in the Netherlands – which ships approximately 40% of our total
    global volume – already uses 80% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified
    shipping boxes.


•  All our shopping bags used in our North America retail stores contain 40%
    post-consumer recycled materials.


•  In North America, we have eliminated more than 50 tons (100,000 pounds) of
     water by reducing the size of our hangtags.

TARGET

•  By 2020, we aim to achieve a 25% reduction in plastic-based packaging use and
    source the remainder from more sustainable materials.



MILESTONES

•  In 2015, we began determining a baseline measurement for our use of plastic-
    based packaging to gain a better understanding of the type, quality and quantity
    of the plastics currently used by our business operations, with the goal of
    creating a program around this.

Commitment07

TARGET

•  By 2020, we aim to repurpose and recycle all waste generated at our stores,
    office and warehouses.*

    *as far as local waste infrastructure allows


MILESTONES

•  We started analyzing what kind of waste is created in our company-operated
    stores, warehouses and offices worldwide, while identifying local solutions
    to manage waste.


•  Leftover wearable garments from our European headquarters are given a
    second life through an organization called His Church.


•  In our New York office we collaborate with re-fashion NYC, to facilitate the
    reuse, repurposing and recycling of damaged and non-damaged materials.


•  At our European headquarters, approximately 75% of our waste is recycled
    and 25% is incinerated, thanks to our recycling bins for papers, plastic,
    glass and general waste.


•  At our New York City office, our waste is collected and processed as part of a
    single stream program operated within both the building and municipality.
