How We’re Driving Change
We unleash the power of
underserved youth around the world.
We do this by supporting partners that put young people in
charge of their own future so that they can create change for
themselves, their families and their communities.
So far, we’ve positively affected 1.5 million of these young
changemakers. And we’re on a mission to reach 5 million by 2025.

at least 50% planet-friendly materials
All polybags for leather goods are now
made from 100% recycled material

innovations – like leather alternatives and global take back programmes
– to help revitalise our natural world.
We currently source more than 90% of our leather for our bags and small leather goods from Leather Working Group certified tanneries. Meaning the tanning process this leather went through met with strict requirements on responsible water use, wastewater discharge, energy use, chemical management and air emissions.
Take back programmes
We’re developing take back programmes in our stores across the globe in order to recycle and reuse products and packaging.

Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO) is a grassroots movement that catalyzes large-scale transformation in urban slums by providing critical services for all, community advocacy platforms, and education and leadership development for women and girls.
A creative non-profit, Girl Effect uses media and mobile tech to empower girls to change their lives, from apps that build skills, to TV dramas that explore vital issues, to magazines written and distributed by girls.
Since 2015, Fossil Foundation has partnered with Friends Interanational on their Futures employment initiative, which supports vulnerable youth and caregivers to secure safe, dignified employment, enabling them to sustainably support themselves and their families.
