At ANN INC., environmental responsibility is inherent in how we do business, and we are constantly looking for new opportunities to reduce
our environmental impact. Our efforts to date are inspired by our clients’ expectations for high environmental standards, and are founded
on a commitment to building sustainability into our business. We have also demonstrated, through cost savings and new innovations, that protecting
the environment makes good business sense.
ANN INC. is a member of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, an industry-wide group of leading apparel
and footwear brands, retailers, suppliers, nonprofits and NGOs working to reduce the environmental and social impacts of the apparel industry. We
use the Higg Index to measure sustainability performance and drive improvements within our operations and those of our suppliers.
Our Sustainability Strategy, a multi-year environmental approach that spans our stores, offices, distribution center and supply chain, provides us
with a comprehensive approach to managing and improving our performance.
