The company’s 10th report introduces the ‘Fabric of Change’, Tapestry’s updated ESG strategy including new goals to match its ambitions, starting with new science-based targets. The group now aims to decrease total GHG emissions across Scopes 1, 2 and 3 by 42.5% by 2030 and achieve net-zero by 2050. In 2022, it decreased its total GHG emissions by 5% from FY2021.

The report also highlighted 2022 progress including the increased usage of renewable energy to 67% across Tapestry’s own stores, offices and fulfilment centers. Tapestry equally introduced a plan to align 10% of annual incentive compensation for executives with the company’s progress against Equity, Inclusion & Diversity. 

Lastly, during the year, Tapestry launched a $3 million four-year partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and supported the founding of the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Social Justice Center (SJC) with financial investments from the Tapestry Foundation.
