We take a lot of pride in our products - and how we make them.
Our company is committed to building sustainability into every aspect of how we operate.
That’s why Levi Strauss & Co. commissioned a lifecycle study of a pair of Dockers Original Khakis to study the full environmental impact of our pants.
What did we learn? Some of the biggest impacts occur in two places we don’t control – the cotton fields and your hands after they leave our shelves. So we’re working to promote sustainably grown Better Cotton and sharing tips to help you change your laundry habits: wash less, wash in cold, line dry when you can, and donate unused clothing so it can be used again. We’re also partnering with our factories to use less energy and water in the production process, and reducing the environmental impacts of shipping our clothes.
The people who make your clothes
In 1991, Levi Strauss & Co. published our Terms of Engagement, protecting the rights of the workers who make your clothes. This groundbreaking document also ensures safe, healthy and human working conditions. We’ve long been an industry leader in worker rights and continue our efforts to improve apparel workers’ lives, both in and out of the factory.
Giving back in our communities
In 1854, a year after starting his company, founder Levi Strauss donated to a local orphanage. In that spirit, our employees have been giving back to the communities where we operate for more than 150 years. Their involvement strengthens communities from San Francisco to Singapore, and their volunteer efforts help local organizations. We encourage employees to support charitable organizations with their time, talent and money by offering them paid time off to volunteer.
Social Responsibility is deeply embedded into our products, our culture and our business. Learn more at LeviStrauss.com.
