PVH Group has announced new science-based targets to reduce greenhouses
The targets aim to have all PVH offices, warehouses and stores powered
by 100 percent renewable electricity by 2030, which the group said will
reduce emissions for its Scope 1 and 2 GHG footprints by 71 percent.
Additionally, the group aims to reduce its global supply chain (Scope 3)
emissions by 30 percent by 2030.
The group, which owns brands Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Van
Heusen, has received approval of its absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emission
reduction targets by the Science Based Target initiative.
The new targets come as part of PVH Group’s Forward Fashion Corporate
Responsibility strategy launched earlier this year, which aims to have its
business operations generate zero waste, zero carbon emissions and zero
hazardous chemicals, and to produce circular products, among other
To achieve these targets, PVH Group said it will be “engaging with the
most energy-intensive facilities in its supply chain to set targets and
reduce GHG footprints”, as well as developing products with lower
environmental impacts, collaborating with suppliers to drive renewable
energy transitions, and supporting the efforts of the United Nations
Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action.
“This validation of our Science Based Targets reflects the science- and
data-based underpinnings of PVH’s Forward Fashion strategy and our goal of
driving fashion forward – for good,” PVH chairman and CEO Emanuel Chirico
said in a statement. “A critical aspect of our ambitions is helping combat
climate change, and we are focused on cutting greenhouse gas emissions and
driving renewable energy procurement in ways that will generate tangible
and scalable change. We are working towards these goals as an individual
organization, as well as with our peers and partners.”
