    The company’s annual Environmental & Social Responsibility report focuses on VF’s primary areas of focus: People, Planet and Product. Report topics cover gender parity; racial equity; human rights; product traceability; climate change; renewable energy; waste reduction; use of responsibly sourced, recycled and regenerative materials; and the reduction of unwanted chemistries from its value chain.

    The report has revealed that seven VF brands operating in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region have diverted nearly 96,000 kilogrammes of single-use packaging plastics from landfills as of FY23. The company also traced 72 per cent of its wool supply chain from farm to finished product in FY23; wool is one of the five key materials that VF has committed to tracing through all five supply chain tiers by FY28.
