A MESSAGEFROM THE CEO
When acing the chal-lenges o our times, LeviStrauss & Co. has a his-tory o taking an industry-leading stance, romestablishing the frst codeo conduct or our sup-pliers to our leadershipin sustainable design.We also ace signifcantbusiness risks, rang-ing rom disruptions to our operations, to the availabilityo water, and to potential impacts to cotton supply, ourcore raw material. This is why we measured our baselineglobal climate ootprint in 2007 and established a goal toreduce it by 11% by 2011. We beat that goal, achieving a13% reduction.And when it comes to the next stage in our climate changestrategy, our ambitious approach is no exception to ourlegacy: our vision is to reduce carbon dioxide and othergreenhouse gases through maximizing energy efciencyand using 100% renewable energy — frst in our operationsand then throughout the supply chain.With this Climate Change Strategy, I am pleased to pres-ent a summary o our current climate change mitigationprogress and updated targets. Just as our groundbreakingTerms o Engagement changed the landscape or sup-pliers worldwide, our climate change strategy and e-orts are setting the stage to raise the bar or companiesworldwide. That’s why we have committed to take actionby measuring and reducing our climate impact, advocat-ing or government policy, and engaging our supply chainand our consumers.Today, Levi Strauss & Co. recognizes that human-pro-duced greenhouse gas emissions are a key contributor toclimate change — perhaps one o the greatest challengeso our time. Climate change mitigation is vital to the long-terms success o our business, as well as the health andwell-being o the people who make and buy our products.Many o the countries where we operate are alreadybeginning to eel the eects o climate change, includingdrought, oods, and the spread o disease.We recognize that to be pioneers, we must take a holisticapproach to ully address climate change: water and othermaterials are inextricably linked with energy and havebroader eects o their own. For more than two decades,Levi Strauss & Co. has been working to reduce our envi-ronmental impacts. When we were concerned about waterdischarge polluting local waterways, we implemented theapparel industry’s frst Global Euent Requirement orour actories and contract laundries. When we wanted tounderstand all o the environmental impacts rom op-erating our business, we completed a groundbreakingstudy o the entire liecycle o our top products. When wechallenged Levi’s

This Climate Change Strategy detailsone important step along the journey to our long-termvision to eliminate the climate impact o our business bymaximizing energy efciency and operating with 100 per-cent renewable energy.Chip Bergh,President & CEOLevi Strauss & Co.
