When we decided to produce our first Corporate Social Responsibility Report (CSR Report), we knew we wanted to do something different. We wanted something simple and honest. Our goal with this report-and with the CSR Experience, where all this information is also available - is to share with you how Anvil sees corporate responsibility, what we did about it in 2008 and 2009, and what we're doing about it in the short and long-term future.
Our journey, our mission
For a long time we've been on a journey to make a difference. To make decisions that have a positive impact on our business and the world around us. That journey has evolved into what is now a fervent mission to do business in ways that create a culture of social and environmental mindfulness both inside and out of Anvil - among our employees, suppliers, clients, and anyone we can influence.
What will you find in this report?
Transparency. Pride. A sense of challenge and, we hope, inspiration. We're going to share with you some of the best things we did in the last year, the things we believe genuinely made a difference in the world and in the lives of the people we touch through our business. We're also going to share some of our most nagging challenges, and how we're planning to address them.
Why should any of this matter to you?
Whether you're a buyer or a supplier, a retailer or an employee, a hard core CSR follower or a just and avid wearer of t-shirts, the information in the report matters because it speaks to your power to influence how we do what we do and how we conduct ourselves. If you're interested in making a difference in the world, or in making an impact through your choices, this report is for you.
