Tune In: Timberland and IKEA Talk Responsible Business

We’re committed to the values of transparency and accountability. Part of that commitment is an ongoing dialogue with our stakeholders that serves to constantly challenge us to find better, more efficient means of building our products in a way that is less bad and hopefully, some day, more good for the environment.

Our Chief Executive Earthkeeper (and our CEO), Jeff Swartz, hosts regular stakeholder engagement calls to inform, inspire, and engage others about Timberland’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. Stakeholder engagement calls allow Jeff to answer various questions, comments, and suggestions regarding Timberland policies and actions and they allow us to carry on our stakeholder dialogue in a public forum. Past calls have covered topics such as corporate climate strategy, responsible sourcing, eco-labeling, community greening, and the current state of corporate social responsibility.

Our next call:
