Since 2009 when our first solar installation came on line at our
California distribution center, we have been seeking every opportunity
to pursue innovative and renewable technologies to reduce our
dependence on fossil fuels. As we build new facilities, we follow
sustainable building practices to decrease our energy and water use,
reduce building waste, incorporate sustainable materials, and add
renewable energy sources where feasible.
Here in Europe, we share our EMEA headquarters with other brands
from the VF family. Our new European headquarters demonstrates our
commitment to sustainability while showcasing several creative
building solutions. Built in 2013, it has achieved LEED Gold
certification; it was designed to be an innovative example of
sustainable building incorporating energy efficient features and made
with natural and recycled materials.
