UGG is committed to conducting business with the utmost respect for universal principles of human rights and responsible environmental practices. In 2016, we, as part of Deckers, joined the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative with over 9,500 participating companies.
As part of our UNGC commitments, we have focussed our efforts in the following areas where we believe we can make the most impact: Waste; Water; Materials; Chemicals; Climate & Clean Energy; Human Rights and Equality.
This partnership requires an annual statement of progress (our Corporate Responsibility Report), which shows our ongoing pledge to best practice at every level of the business.
Deckers Group has also adopted its own set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 7 By 2027, which focus on categories where Deckers Brands can make the most impact – Waste, Water, Materials, Chemicals, Climate & Clean Energy, Human Rights, and Gender Equality & Quality Education.
