“We are proud of the actions our company is taking to drive positive environmental and social change within our organization and our world,” said John D. Idol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capri Holdings. “Early last year, soon after we created our global fashion luxury group, Capri Holdings, we assessed the sustainability efforts each of our brands was already undertaking, along with the core values shared by them. We also considered the responsibilities we collectively hold to the environment, to the communities in which we operate, and to the people with whom we work. We recognize that as our company grows, so do our responsibilities, and welcome the opportunity to do more. We believe that sound environmental and social policies are both ethically correct and fiscally responsible. To that end, we are committed to improving the way we work in order to better the world in which we live.”
Coinciding with the release of the company’s corporate social responsibility goals and objectives, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capri Holdings John D. Idol signed the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative established to support achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. By signing the UN Global Compact, Capri Holdings confirms its commitment to align its strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption, and its commitment to advance societal goals relating to sustainability.
In addition to its commitment to the UN Global Compact, Capri Holdings has previously signed the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles, the Fashion Pact, the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion and the Open to All Pledge, signaling its partnership with industry groups, corporate social responsibility leaders and other brands to create lasting change and increase the collective impact around environmental and social sustainability.
