Sustainability Leadership: VF Corporation in Action

Global apparel and footwear company VF Corporation, owner of The North Face, Timberland and Vans, once again shows commitment to #innovation, will to collaborate and hearty determination to drive and deliver systemic change, three cornerstones of #sustainability #leadership.

Timberland has set an ambitious target to ensure 100% of its natural materials are sourced by #regenerativeagriculture by 2030 and this rubber supply system will actively support the goals.
