Timberland launches new goals

Clothing and shoe brand Timberland has unveiled a new suite of environmental goals designed to ensure the bootmaker takes serious strides towards becoming a greener, more ethical company by 2020.

The new 2020 targets include a commitment to source 50 percent of energy used in its facilities from renewable sources, ensure all footwear products include some recycled, organic or renewable material, and use 100 percent organic clothing.

In addition, Timberland also announced a set of new formal environmental standards that will apply across all of its categories to help curb the environmental impact of its products.

“At Timberland, we hold ourselves accountable for what goes into our products as well as how they’re made, and we’re constantly seeking innovative solutions to reduce their environmental impact,” said Colleen Vien, sustainability director for Timberland.
