Timberland

At Timberland, we know business can be about both commerce and justice. That's why we're committed to reducing our environmental impact and enhancing our communities—and why we expect to turn a healthy profit at the same time. We know our consumers care about environmental and social justice, and they want to buy from a brand that feels the same way. But that's not the only reason we believe it's good business. After all, without the outdoors and healthy communities, our consumers would have nowhere to use our products.
