Living with purpose

The positive impact we have in the communities where we live and work is essential to being a Purpose-led business. Our associates are effecting meaningful change through personal passions and with company support and encouragement. 

As individuals, we are changemakers. But when we come together, we become game-changers. There’s strength in our diversity and power in our collective.

We’re putting purpose at the heart of our business: to power movements of sustainable and active lifestyles for the betterment of people and our planet.

In a very real sense, we don’t see ourselves as a company but as a global community of movement makers pursuing our goals together.

People power

Our associates power our success. With over 35,000 associates, we’re more than a company. We’re a global community bound together by common values and a shared commitment to make a difference in the world. We’re also a diverse family in terms of geography, culture, and perspective. Our differences give us a rich mix of unique ideas, experience, and talent to help ignite innovation, fuel growth, and give back to our local communities.

Active communities

Vibrant local communities sustain VF. We, in turn, give back to our communities. When our associates, consumers, and workers live in thriving communities, they tend to be happier, healthier, and more productive. Our brands are active supporters of their local communities, through grassroots volunteering, fundraising, and advocacy—often with a focus on helping people become more active in their lives and engaged with local movements.
