Q. Sustainability is becoming a more important topic for both investors and consumers. What is Ralph Lauren doing to minimize the company’s impact on the environment and be a better global citizen?

A. We know this is an area that matters to all of our stakeholders which is why in June, we launched a comprehensive new citizenship and sustainability strategy and accompanying report. We call it “Design the Change.” Design the Change is our commitment to create more sustainable products, reduce our overall environmental footprint across our operations, and support and empower our teams and partners around the world. There are three pillars of our plan: 1) Create timeless style: Sustainable product design; sourcing & traceability; chemical management; 2) Protect the environment: Carbon & energy use; waste management; water stewardship; and 3) Champion better lives: Diversity & inclusion; health, safety & working conditions; community engagement & philanthropy. We introduced 16 key citizenship and sustainability goals that touch every area of our business and drive accountability across our organization. Key targets we expect to reach by 2025 range from reducing water usage by 25% across our operations and value chain to achieving gender parity within our leadership at Ralph Lauren.
