Social Responsibility

COMMUNICATION AND ENGAGEMENT
Engaging associates, customers and other stakeholders to raise awareness and gain insight is important to us. Our customers and associates are passionate about our brand and expect great quality, an amazing experience and, increasingly, responsible business practices. We are committed to meeting these expectations.

The J.Crew Green Committee was established in 2008 by a group of associates who wanted to make a difference in our operations. Since then, the Green Committee has expanded to include associates from departments throughout the company. The Green Committee has been a valuable tool for us as we implement environmental initiatives and raise associate awareness about our efforts.

Our Environmental Champion program was established in our stores in 2011 to better engage our associates in our efforts. In addition to helping us reduce the environmental impact of our stores, the program raises associate awareness about our efforts and gives them the opportunity to be part of the dialogue to help identify opportunities for improvement.
We launched a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program in 2011 partnering with Mountain View Farm in Massachusetts to deliver fresh, local produce to associates in our New York office. In 2012 we expanded this program with nearly 10% of associates participating in the program. We are excited to offer this benefit to our associates again in 2013.

If you have any questions about our efforts, please contact us at socialresponsibility@jcrew.com.

WASTE MINIMIZATION
Minimizing the waste that we generate and dispose of is important to us. Waste minimization will help us conserve natural resources; reduce emissions and impacts on landscapes and habitats; and lower costs. We are continually evaluating opportunities to minimize the generation of waste in our business. READ MORE →

SUPPLY CHAIN
Through our Responsible Sourcing program, we've developed strong relationships with our key suppliers. As we expand our environmental initiatives into the supply chain, we expect to leverage those relationships to drive change and improve the environmental impact in the factories that manufacture J.Crew, Madewell and crewcuts products.

In 2011, we trained our Production team on the environmental impacts... READ MORE →
