We were one of the first 28 companies to commit to setting targets in line with limiting global temperatures from rising 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Now, over 200 are committed.
Creating anything affects the environment, and the fashion industry makes one of the biggest impacts out there. Millions of pounds of clothes continue to end up in landfills each year. And although some brands are taking sustainability into account, many aren’t. We’re part of the problem — but we can also be part of the solution.
Levi Strauss & Co. is constantly looking at ways we can use fewer resources, design smarter and care for the people who make our clothes. We’ve been doing this for years and are proud to share all of the major improvements and updates we’ve made.
Recently, we reset our own carbon emission targets to help stop the average global temperature from rising past 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels — the point where we’ll start to see major natural systems change permanently. We’re one of only 28 companies committed to this change, and we encourage others to follow.
We’re not stopping there. Our goals include:
100% renewable electricity in Levi’s® owned-and-operated facilities by the end of 2025
Zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by the end of 2020
80+% of Levi’s® jeans and trucker jackets made with Water<Less® techniques by the end of 2020
We care so much about these initiatives that we’re sharing what we learn along the way with the rest of the industry, to have the greatest impact possible. Because making smart decisions on climate change — and remembering the power we all have to speak up and take action — has never been more important.
