Good for the Planet

We’re taking action to lead the industry in Pro-Planet innovation to help revitalize our natural world.

Our Good for the Planet strategic driver is informed by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Designing for the Future

We aspire to be part of leading industry-wide change by transitioning to a circular business model for watches and packaging materials. By incorporating sustainability as an integral part of product design and using less resource intensive materials, we are creating products with reduced environmental impact throughout the complete product life cycle.

Our Goals and Progress
BY 2025 2021 Progress
Achieve 95% traceability of our suppliers and our processing units on our raw materials to ensure transparency and responsibility within design and supply chains We achieved traceability in our handbag and small leather goods categories. This represents 10% of our total vendor base and we plan to expand traceability across our remaining product categories.
BY 2030
Fully roll out our global take-back program. We rolled out our take-back program to 30% of our retail stores, specifically within select Fossil stores in our European and Asian regions. We are using these stores to test and refine practices which will ultimately support our global approach.
Complete Life Cycle Assessment by third-party certification/validation organization of all products for their sustainability benefits (e.g., recycled content, sustainably sourced origins, recyclability, degradability). As we strive to find environmentally-friendly materials, sourcing, and manufacturing for all our products, having reliable third-party sources confirming these efforts is important to us. Thus, we are currently researching the proper certifying organizations to which we align our business practices.
Use 100% circular packaging (e.g., recyclable and/or reusable). 20% of our packaging is now recyclable and/or reusable.
BY 2040
Design 100% of our owned brand products with recycling in mind. Our teams will continue designing to eliminate waste, using materials that are regenerative, recycled, or sourced sustainably, to create products that are more durable, easily repaired, or recyclable. 30% of our owned brand products and packaging utilize environmentally-friendly materials.

Leaving a Light Footprint

Nations around the world are increasingly working to address climate change through international agreements, from the Kyoto Protocol to the Paris Agreement, and they have been vital to emphasizing the enormity of the issue as well as the importance of collaborations. We produced over 15 million watches in 2021. These watches along with other accessories used a wide range of natural resources—resources that we should use responsibly. Our current goals focus on combating climate change, driving significant water and waste reductions, and providing transparency around chemicals.

Our Goals and Progress
BY 2025 2021 Progress
Double the adoption of clean energy sources with our owned facilities and the facilities of our Tier 1 suppliers in three years. We partnered with a third party to map out our energy landscape globally. Over
85% of our managed facilities are now within the digital platform. In 2021, we
sourced 3MWh of power from clean energy.
Engage 100% of our direct suppliers to meet the water stewardship policy set by Fossil Group. We have engaged 87 Tier 1 suppliers (>90% of our Tier 1 suppliers), including
suppliers from watches, leather goods, jewelry, packaging, and connected
devices, in our environmental initiatives through online workshops.
BY 2040
Achieve Net-Zero GHG emissions by 2040, starting with halving emissions by 2030. In 2021, we began working with a third-party assessor to validate our complete Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. We also began developing our Net-Zero roadmap with science-based targets.
