By signing the UN Global Compact and CEO Water Mandate, PVH joins over 9,000 corporate members in recognizing business’s ability to lead change on the global sustainable development agenda, to improve water stewardship and improve access to clean water and sanitation.
 
In 2016, PVH signed the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles, and it celebrated the 25th anniversary of A Shared Commitment, its code of conduct for business partners. The company also launched an enhanced global Corporate Responsibility strategy with 10 commitments that focus on empowering people, preserving the environment, and supporting communities.
 
“The world is changing rapidly. We recognize both the opportunity and the responsibility for business to take a lead role in addressing pressing global issues. We believe that by partnering with the United Nations through our commitment to the UN Global Compact, CEO Water Mandate and Women’s Empowerment Principles, we can better drive progress in the areas that matter most to our business, our industry and the world more broadly,” said PVH Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Emanuel Chirico.
 
Tommy Hilfiger also signed the CEO Water Mandate, which follows its multi-year partnership with WWF International. The American brand signed the Mandate to reaffirm its commitment to responsible water usage and stewardship.

PVH follows Deckers Brands, which joined the UN Compact in October.
