Preserving and Protecting Our Planet

Our brands have a long history of environmental stewardship and compliance, but we know we have to do more.

Our Planet

The world’s resources are limited, and the climate crisis is already impacting communities around the world.  We believe companies have a responsibility to use resources wisely, drive sustainable innovations, and preserve and protect the planet and communities where we work and live. Below, we report our energy, water and waste data for the calendar year of 2019. Kontoor Brands launched as a publicly-traded company in May 2019, therefore information reported below may reflect impacts outside of company operations.

Inspired by its heritage as a brand built from the land, Wrangler formed a coalition of industry experts, pioneering farmers, and nonprofit partners to sponsor research, support farmer workshops and promote science-backed soil health farming methods. Launched in 2017 with a large, family-owned farm in Alabama, the Wrangler Science and Conservation Program now includes Cotton, Inc., The Soil Health Institute, BASF, Field to Market, The Nature Conservancy, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, among others.

The Wrangler Science and Conservation Program aims to build a more resilient and regenerative cotton supply, but the practices are not exclusive to cotton producers and can be adopted by any farmer or rancher. When used together in cotton production, the three farming practices – conservation tilling, complex crop rotation, and cover cropping – not only increase yields, but also decrease costs and inputs, lower risks from weather and pests, while adding three times more carbon into the soil than conventional practices.
