PVH Corp, owner of iconic brands, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Van Heusen, Speedo and IZOD, has received approval of its absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets by the Science Based Target initiative, furthering its commitment to a zero-carbon economy. PVH’s targets are in line with the most ambitious level of decarbonisation, 1.5 degrees Celsius, set out by the Paris Agreement, a United Nations-led agreement among nations to limit the earth’s rising temperature to fight climate change.
PVH established GHG emission reduction targets as a part of the Forward Fashion Corporate Responsibility strategy launched earlier this year. The strategy set out the ambition for business operations to generate zero waste, zero carbon emissions and zero hazardous chemicals, and to produce circular products among other social and environmental commitments. To continue reaching these targets, PVH pursues energy efficiencies and renewable energy deployment in line with its commitment to RE100, a global corporate leadership initiative moving businesses toward 100 percent renewable electricity.
