Letter From Our CEO

Today, we are proudly releasing both the Levi Strauss & Co. 2021 sustainability report and launching the second iteration of the Levi’s® brand’s “Buy Better, Wear Longer” campaign. Within the report, I’m extremely happy to say, you will also find our updated slate of 16 goals that reflect our holistic definition of sustainability, with targets tied to emissions reductions, water use, fibers, circularity, worker well-being, engagement on social issues and more.

I mention the report, the new goals, and “Buy Better, Wear Longer” in combination because I believe that they together speak to the depth of LS&Co.’s commitment to sustainability and our priorities across all stakeholder audiences.

This report is a record of our determination to deliver progress across the three main pillars of our sustainability programming — climate, consumption and community. Our goals articulate how we plan to become an even more resilient business while also signaling to our industry our willingness to collaborate and create the scale necessary to address the most critical challenges of our time. And our “Buy Better, Wear Longer” campaign represents the continuation of our ongoing conversation with consumers about the need to combat overproduction and overconsumption in and by the apparel industry.

It is abundantly clear that businesses with long-term growth aspirations must be looking for ways to use resources more efficiently and judiciously, better support their people and communities, and play an active role in solving the most critical issues of our day. There remain questions, however, about how companies do these things, how businesses should measure and substantiate progress, and whether the progress is happening fast enough, which in most cases, it is not.

So, while we take a moment to reflect on the work that’s been done, we know that what’s most important is what we do next. Creating real impact is a challenge that all businesses must take on – a challenge that we will continue to tackle across our company.
