GAP Inc. delivers on commitment towards building a sustainable, resilient, inclusive business (PC: GAP Inc.)

Global retailer Gap Inc.’s 2022 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report indicates how the Group is delivering on its commitment towards building a sustainable, resilient and inclusive business – across its corporate functions and portfolio of brands including Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic and Athleta.

With its ESG strategy aligned with the pillars of ‘Empowering Women’, ‘Enabling Opportunity’ and ‘Enriching Communities’, some highlights from GAP Inc.’s ESG report include:

  • Empowered over 2.4 million people to improve their access to clean water and sanitation through the USAID Gap Inc. Women + Water Alliance (since 2017).
  • Fuelled the next generation of leaders with skills and confidence they need to succeed in the workplace with Old Navy’s ‘This Way Onward’ programme (since 2007). Over 15,000 youth have participated in the programme that now accounts for 4% of all Old Navy entry-level employees.
  • Increased women in STEM positions from 24% to 28% and achieved modest gains in representation of people of colour across its US-based employee population.

“As a global company that reaches millions of people around the world, we have an incredible opportunity – and a great deal of responsibility – to drive positive change by working with our partners to create a more sustainable business and a more equitable industry,” said Bob Martin, Gap Inc. Interim CEO and Executive Chair of the Board.

In addition, over the past year Gap Inc. received the U.S. Department of State’s ‘ACE’ Award in the Responsible Business Operations category for promoting human rights in its supply chain, ranked on the CDP ‘A’ List for Water Security, was named on the CDP Climate Supplier Engagement Leaderboard and was included in the S&P Global Dow Jones Sustainability Indices for the 10th year in a row.
