This Impact Agenda is our stake in the ground towards an equitable, sustainable future. It outlines our vision to minimise negative impact and contribute to a better world. Rooted in the social and environmental contexts in which we operate and the societal issues that matter most for our business and industry, our Impact Agenda creates a path for change for our employees, guests, and communities. Our strategy is organised into three interconnected pillars, each with a vision for success, goals, commitments and strategies: Be human, Be well and Be planet.

Our people succeed because we create an environment that is equitable,
inclusive, and fosters growth.
We know that a responsible supply chain starts with the decisions we make, so we partner with vendors who share our values and our commitment to the well-being and safety of the people who make our products. Our Vendor Code of Ethics outlines our manufacturing expectations and upholds international standards to ensure our partners adhere to consistent practices.
We heard loud and clear that we need to change behaviours within our own walls to support the Black Lives Matter movement and create meaningful lasting change in the world. We have made five major commitments to stand up and fund inclusion, diversity, equity and action within lululemon to ensure we stay engaged and act in allyship in our commitment to anti-racism.
At lululemon, we stand for gender pay equity: equal pay for equal work. In April 2018 we achieved gender pay equity as a global organisation and committed to regularly assessing our hiring and reward practices to ensure we are making informed and inclusive decisions that reflect our values.
Our communities thrive when people have the tools they need for physical,
mental, and social wellbeing.
The newly launched lululemon Centre for Social Impact disrupts inequity in wellbeing through movement, mindfulness, and advocacy. In collaboration with global, national, and local organizations we invest in local community resilience, pursue impact at scale through philanthropy, research and advocacy, and contribute to a culture of impact at lululemon.
The United Nations Foundation and lululemon share a commitment to making a positive impact around the world. We’ve joined forces to support UN workers in improving their mental and physical wellbeing so they can effectively care for others.
Our products and actions avoid environmental harm and contribute
to restoring a healthy planet.
We’re committed to making products that are better in every way—for people and the planet. We’re adopting practices and creating solutions that enhance our products, minimise negative impact, and contribute to restoring the environment. We focus on making products with sustainable materials and end-of-use solutions, toward a circular ecosystem.
We’re working toward a carbon-neutral future, starting with cutting our own emissions. We created science-based targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative. To achieve these targets, we’re implementing strategies to invest in the transition to renewable energy, drive carbon reduction and energy efficiency across our value chain, and collaborate across industries for progress.
We want to make waste a thing of the past. Packaging is a current reality of our industry and we’re taking steps to eliminate, reduce, reuse or recycle where possible. See some of the ways we’re taking action and making changes to our operational and textile waste.
