AEO is committed to accelerating sustainability improvements across our operations. In 2019, we introduced comprehensive sustainability goals, including a plan to be carbon neutral by 2030 with a focus on water reduction, energy reduction, and the use of more sustainable raw materials. This work is highlighted in our Real Good products, which is how customers can identify the most sustainable items in our American Eagle and Aerie collections. Real Good is our promise to doing better and working harder. We have a lot of work to do to reach our sustainability goals. We’re not there yet, but we’re on our way. Our values drive improvements in our practices, enabling us to responsibly source and create products that our customers love to wear. To make American Eagle and Aerie products, we partner with apparel manufacturers that operate more than 300 factories in more than 20 countries around the world. We do not own or operate any factories, so it’s important to develop trusted relationships with our suppliers to make our apparel responsibly. We’re working to enhance our current factory monitoring programs and advance key initiatives that focus on worker well-being, environmental responsibility and increased supplier ownership. AEO has a comprehensive Supplier Code of Conduct which is based upon internationally accepted standards, including the International Labor Organization (ILO)’s core conventions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. AEO uses this Code of Conduct to work collaboratively with our factory partners to ensure they meet AEO’s requirements.
