The Children’s Place Exceeds Emissions Goal

The Children’s Place, Inc., a children’s specialty apparel retailer, announced a reduction in GHG emissions of 41% against a 2018 baseline in owned and leased operations (Scope 1 and 2), exceeding the previously announced goal of 30% targeted for 2030.  

The new GHG reduction goal is 50% for Scope 1 and 2 market-based emissions by the end of 2030 and includes measurable targets to increase the use of more sustainable raw materials in products and to reduce the use of water and chemicals in its global supply chain. The company said over two-thirds of the cotton fibers used in the company’s apparel are now responsibly sourced with a goal of 100% responsibly sourced cotton by the end of fiscal 2025.

Details were provided in its 2021 Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) Report. 

“We believe our efforts have the potential to unlock significant value and new opportunities for our business,” said Adrian Sherman, Vice President, Environment & Social Responsibility, in a statement. “While we realize there is much work to be done in achieving the goals we have set, we remain committed to continued progress for the benefit of our customers, our shareholders, our associates, and the communities we impact through our operations.”
