World Water Day 2017: Levi's Protecting a Precious Resource

Levi Strauss & Co. has invested in a broad slate of initiatives to help reduce its water footprint – including a pledge to the White House on last year’s World Water Day – to train all corporate employees to become water ambassadors through Project WET. 



One year later, LS&Co. has trained 26 per cent of its employees in this hands-on curriculum that brings a game-filled approach to teaching kids about the importance of clean water. By 2020, LS&Co. aims to have all corporate employees fully trained.

Water education isn’t the only tool LS&Co. employs to reduce water use:
  • For eight years now, every Levi’s®, Dockers®, Denizen® and Signature by Levi Strauss & Co.™ product has contained a Care Tag for the Planet — instructions on how to care for products in an environmentally friendly way.
  • In 2011, LS&Co. designers challenged themselves to create the same styles consumers love with far less water. Water<Less® products reduce the water used in the denim finishing process by up to 96 per cent. To date, LS&Co. reduced its water use by nearly 2 billion litres.
  • The organization is a founding member of the Better Cotton Initiative, which uses 18 per cent less water than standard cotton. Last year LS&Co.sourced 21 per cent of its cotton from the Better Cotton Initiative.
  • LS&Co. educates factory workers who make its products about safe drinking water and hygiene through its Worker Well-being initiative.
  • The organization works closely with its supply chain to reduce water and chemical use, and are working toward achieving zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by 2020.
