about carter's

Our ESG Strategy

The Carter’s family of brands is committed to a world where all families with young children can grow and thrive. Our multifaceted Raise the Future platform is founded on a promise to better our world through our commitment to provide more sustainable product offerings, reduce our carbon footprint, and uplift workers and communities.
In 2023, Carter’s conducted an ESG-focused materiality assessment that concluded in 2024. We partnered with a third-party firm to engage both internal and external stakeholders through surveys and interviews. The insights gained from this study enabled us to evaluate our key priorities and goals and to continue making progress against our strategic pillars that guide our long-term ESG commitments: Product, Planet, and People. Through a holistic approach, we believe we are able to realize added value across our operations such as reducing risk, increasing efficiencies, and enhancing resiliency and continuity.
Though key ESG topics, like climate change management, did not arise directly from our materiality assessment, Carter's remains committed to reducing our environmental footprint throughout our operations. Climate action is a key lever in addressing priority topics that surfaced, like Raw Material Sourcing and Supply Chain Resilience. Human Rights and Responsible Sourcing can also be positively impacted by efforts to mitigate climate change and reduce its impacts.

The following topics surfaced from our materiality assessment:

  • Consumer Behavior
  • Ethical Conduct
  • Human Rights and Responsible Sourcing
  • Product Quality and Safety
  • Raw Materials Sourcing
  • Supply Chain Resilience
