Environmental challenges transcend boundaries, affecting people and communities everywhere. Protecting our planet is fundamental to our sustainable business strategy and central to our company’s future.
Our environmental management approach focuses on addressing climate, water, and waste—issues where we see significant potential to positively impact people’s lives and enrich the world’s communities. We take steps every day to achieve our bold goals, including by incorporating sustainable practices into product development and partnering with businesses, non-profits, governments and community organizations to do our part in building a thriving planet.
To build the resilience of our company, our supply chain and the people who make our clothes, we are reducing water impacts through more sustainable approaches to materials sourcing and manufacturing.
We are investing in opportunities to build community water resilience for those who are affected most: women. Learn more about our WASH education programs and the USAID Gap Inc. Women + Water Alliance.
To do our part in reducing industrial water pollution in the apparel industry and improve access to clean, safe water, we are working to eliminate the discharge of hazardous chemicals within our supply chain.
We address climate change by aligning our goals and strategies with the best science and industry practices, following a multifaceted approach to reduce our carbon footprint in Scopes 1, 2 and 3.
We aim to measurably reduce the environmental and social impacts of our products by selecting fibers that have a lower carbon footprint, use less water, create less waste and support efforts to protect biodiversity.
We implement programs, invest in innovation, and partner with leaders in the circular economy to address the full life cycle of our garments, from raw materials to end-of-life—and back again.
