Our CR Strategy

Driving positive impact in an ever-changing world.

PVH Corporate Responsibility – Make Positive Impacts

In this rapidly changing world, it is clear that there is much to do as we prepare to address today’s issues and those of tomorrow. In 2015, we built on our existing CR efforts and Source to Store approach by articulating a more holistic CR strategy that we believe will address these global and industry challenges. We seek to strengthen our organization by managing risk, maximizing efficiencies and driving value in this rapidly changing world. In shaping our strategy, we conducted a materiality assessment with multiple stakeholders, benchmarked the strategies of industry peers and reviewed the impact of our current initiatives.

Looking ahead, we will increasingly set measurable targets to monitor and evaluate our progress, and take action to improve upon our performance.

At PVH, we believe that Corporate Responsibility helps strengthen our organization by managing risk, maximizing efficiencies and driving value in a rapidly changing world.
