Across our business, we’re taking action for people and planet. We’re never going to stop holding ourselves accountable and finding ways to do more. We’re showing up for the future of the new generation. A future we want their help to shape. Because we know change can’t be contained to boardrooms and stakeholder meetings. All of us are stakeholders in our future. We’re working with four next-generation thinkers. And giving them a seat at the table. We’re giving the next generation a voice.
Empowering them to make an impact. Three times a year, they’ll meet with our Chief Sourcing Officer and Chief Product Officer, along with our leaders in sustainability to have their opinions, suggestions and criticisms heard. No lip service. No egos. Just upfront and honest discussion. Translated into action. So that together, we can drive real change. Four influential voices. One mission: To create a Forever Better. Together.
