Zero Waste Planning for VF Corporation

Location: Washington

Reducing waste across a global network of distribution facilities, retail stores, and corporate offices

Cascadia is working with VF Corporation—the world's largest apparel company—to reduce waste at its global network of distribution facilities, retail stores, and corporate offices. During the first phase of the project, we surveyed facilities to create a comprehensive global baseline of operational waste. Our current work is focused on identifying innovative opportunities to increase diversion, reduce waste, and cut costs at select facilities throughout the US and abroad. In addition, Cascadia consults with VF’s corporate office on companywide waste reduction strategies, progress, and best practices. Our recommendations have laid the groundwork for the development of a companywide zero waste strategy and action plan

Cascadia is very organized; their work product is thorough. I appreciated their flexibility and responsiveness. I just appreciated their ability to take our interests and put them into a tangible work product and a plan. The thoroughness of their work really led to a product that was very relevant to us and that we still use in our work. As a whole, the firm seems to be much more comfortable with field work than other consultants.
