PVH Corp. has been recognized as one of America's 100 Most JUST Companies by Forbes and JUST Capital on the 2021 list. PVH ranked 63rd overall on the 6th annual list and 2nd in the Household Goods & Apparel category. This is the fourth time PVH has ranked, surpassing past rankings on the 2019 and 2020 list.
The JUST 100 list ranks America's largest publicly traded companies according to how they perform on matters of corporate justness. These categories range from fair wages, to the protection of the environment and promoting a safe and equal workplace.
To determine the rankings, Forbes, in partnership with JUST Capital, evaluated companies based on data collected from public reports, company surveys and crowd-sourced repositories. A team of data scientists and statisticians weighed this data based on what a survey of 95,000 Americans indicated are the most important aspects of business behavior.
'Being accountable and transparent, and taking purposeful action to move our business and the fashion industry towards a more sustainable future, is at the core of our Forward Fashion strategy.' said Manny Chirico, Chairman and CEO, PVH Corp. 'We are committed to prioritizing climate action, upholding human rights across our value chain, and collaborating with stakeholders to drive long-term, systemic change - and we'll continue to share our progress along the way.'
Among the steps PVH has taken to advance our Forward Fashion strategy, some recent highlights include:
PVH signed the UNGC's Business Ambition for 1.5-degreeC Commitment Letter. By signing, we joined the global movement of leading corporations aligning their business with the ambitious aims of the Paris Agreement to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5-degreeC and reach net-zero by 2050.
We pledged to Empower Women as a public UN Foundation (UNF) commitment, aligning with the UNF's focus on women's health and economic empowerment programs across supply chains - and calling on industry peers to do the same.
PVH, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger joined together to sign the Black in Fashion Council Pledge as part of our Be BRAAVE initiative to support the Black community to advance the company's ongoing efforts to achieve equality and racial justice.
