Fashion has the power to be a positive force in the world. So when we identify areas where we can make a positive impact for our people and planet, we won’t stop halfway.

Our ambition is for 100% of our products and packaging to be ethically and sustainably sourced, and for 100% of our suppliers to respect human rights and be good employers.

Our targets

Expand the application of PVH’s social and environmental standards to the manufacturing of all products and materials

Key Target: 100% of PVH suppliers will meet or exceed all of its social and environmental standards by 2030

Improve working environments through worker engagement and representation

Key Target: 100% of workers employed by key suppliers will have their voices heard through representative workplace committees by 2025

We're proud of...


In 2018, we expanded our migrant labor policy with explicit details regarding fees, contracts, freedom of movement, and dormitories for suppliers.


Our packaging is now 74% recyclable and we became the first apparel company to join How2Recycle, a U.S. and Canada-based standardized labeling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public.


We are working toward sustainably sourcing 100% of our cotton, have stopped using angora, and were named on the Textile Exchange’s Preferred Fiber Benchmark List of Top Industry Users of Recycled Polyester.

How cooperation can tackle complexity and elevate worker voices / Rick Relinger, Vice President of Human Rights and Operations at PVH, has a firm belief in the power of fashion to be a positive force in the world. “The industry can be a source of inclusive economic growth and decent work, providing opportunities for people in developing countries when companies work to fulfill their responsibility to respect human rights.”
