Abercrombie & Fitch Co. aims to positively impact the communities it touches around the world and to implement programs and initiatives that build value for all stakeholders.
Strategy & Goals
In alignment with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, we’re working hard to address global challenges.
We’ve made progress across all of our 2025 key sustainability targets.
Our Board’s ESG Committee is responsible for the oversight of risks associated with our environmental and social strategies.
At A&F Co., we strive to create a positive impact among our global communities by advancing sustainability efforts in our home offices, stores network and supply chain.
Overall, our sustainability practices and policies support our commitment to global human and labor rights, ensuring our products are made in safe and responsible facilities and continually reducing the environmental impact of our business.
In 2019, we became a participant in the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the world’s largest corporate citizenship and sustainability initiative. As part of our commitment to the UNGC, we have laid out specific targets that build on our existing impact programs and align with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. These goals address global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
We’ve been on this journey for more than two decades and we know there is no finish line to these efforts. Along with our approximately 30,000 global associates, I look forward to continuing this important work to make a greater impact on the communities in which we operate.
