Our Impact


Our purpose is to elevate the world by realizing the full potential within every one of us.

This Impact Agenda is our stake in the ground toward an equitable, sustainable future. It outlines our vision to minimize negative impact and contribute to a better world. Rooted in the social and environmental contexts in which we operate and the societal issues that matter most for our business and industry, our Impact Agenda creates a path for change for our employees, guests, and communities.

Our strategy is organized into three interconnected pillars, each with a vision for success, goals and commitments, and strategies: be human, be well, and be planet.

Our Impact Agenda


Be human.

Our people succeed because we create an environment that is equitable, inclusive, and fosters growth


Responsible Supply Chain

We know that a responsible supply chain starts with the decisions we make, so we partner with vendors who share our values and our commitment to the well-being and safety of the people who make our products. Our Vendor Code of Ethics outlines our manufacturing expectations and upholds international standards to ensure our partners adhere to consistent practices.


Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Action

We heard loud and clear that we need to change behaviors within our own walls to support the Black Lives Matter movement and meaningful lasting change in the world. We have made five major commitments to stand up and fund inclusion, diversity, equity and action within lululemon to ensure we stay engaged and act in allyship in our commitment to anti-racism.


Equal Pay for Equal Work

At lululemon, we stand for gender pay equity: equal pay for equal work. In April 2018 we achieved gender pay equity as a global organization and committed to regularly assessing our hiring and reward practices to ensure we are making informed and inclusive decisions that reflect our values. Find out more about how we achieved gender pay equity on our infographic.

Be well.

Our communities thrive because we contribute to conditions that support mental, physical, and social wellbeing.

lululemon has released its first-ever Global Wellbeing Report, advancing the Company’s commitment to advocate for wellbeing—enabling holistic wellbeing through movement, mindfulness, and connection.

Key Findings


lululemon Centre for Social Impact.

The newly launched lululemon Centre for Social Impact disrupts inequity in wellbeing through movement, mindfulness, and advocacy. In collaboration with global, national, and local organizations we invest in local community resilience, pursue impact at scale through philanthropy, research and advocacy, and contribute to a culture of impact at lululemon.


Peace on Purpose.

The United Nations Foundation and lululemon share a commitment to making a positive impact around the world. We’ve joined forces to support UN workers in improving their mental and physical wellbeing so they can effectively care for others.

Be planet.

Our products and actions avoid environmental harm and contribute to restoring a healthy planet.


Better products.

We’re committed to making products that are better in every way—for people and the planet. We’re adopting practices and creating solutions that enhance our products, minimize negative impact, and contribute to restoring the environment. We focus on making products with sustainable materials and end-of-use solutions, toward a circular ecosystem.


Climate change and renewable energy.

We created science-based targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative. To achieve these targets, we’re implementing strategies to invest in the transition to renewable energy, drive carbon reduction and energy efficiency across our value chain, and collaborate across industries for progress.


Make waste obsolete.

We want to make waste a thing of the past. Packaging is a current reality of our industry and we’re taking steps to eliminate, reduce, reuse or recycle where possible. See some of the ways we’re taking action and making changes to our operational and textile waste.
