URBN takes sustainability efforts seriously. We’re committed to continually challenging ourselves to make a positive difference in our communities and local neighborhoods. Whether it’s our recyclable shopping bags, partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters to run a donation drive or using a reusable design and restoration strategy in our offices and stores, we make decisions with our environment and our community in mind.
URBN maintains a Sustainability Committee to set sustainability policies and goals, provide oversight of those policies, and track and report progress towards our goals.
The Sustainability Committee is co-chaired by URBN’s Chief Sourcing Officer and its General Counsel. The Committee reports to the Board at least annually. The Committee also maintains three functional Working Groups: Environmental & Social, Data Privacy & Security, and Governance. Each Working Group is comprised of senior management representatives and is responsible for recommending policies and goals to the Committee, implementing policies established by the Committee, and tracking and reporting to the Committee on progress towards goals falling within the Working Group’s remit.
