Timberland on target with latest CSR data

Written by John Mowbray

NEW HAMPSHIRE – US outdoor apparel business Timberland has released its Q3 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance data which is broken down by the three CSR goals of product, outdoors, and community. The data shows that in Q3, 69 per cent of all cotton used in Timberland apparel was either organic, US-origin, or Better Cotton Initiative certified. Meanwhile, Timberland's average use of volatile organic compounds was 54 grams per pair of shoes, while 91.6 per cent of Timberland's overall leather volume came from tanneries that have a Silver or Gold rating by the Leather Working Group, a multi-stakeholder group, comprised of brands, retailers, leather manufacturers, chemical companies and other relevant parties in the leather supply chain, with the goal of raising the environmental performance of the leather industry.
