At schuh, they love footwear more than almost anything, but they know some things are more important. The company is about shoes and sneaks, but also the people wearing them – teams, customers and the wider community.
schuh’s Purpose Pillars embody 40 years of the brand’s diversity, self-expression, and inclusivity culture. The company has achieved significant milestones centred around raising social consciousness amongst employees, brand partners and customers. The Purpose Pillars have evolved into three main pillars – Sustainability, Mental Wellness and Fostering Diverse Talent, which includes Racial Equality, Disability Equality and LGBT+.
A charity represents each pillar that schuh works with closely to ensure they understand each pillar’s key issues and opportunities. schuh want to utilise its reach to support positive messaging and deliver charitable donations to fuel further change. Working with key partner charities has allowed schuh to support the communities who shop with them.
They believe strongly in preserving the environment for current and future generations. At schuh, this means; conserving energy, minimising waste, sourcing sustainable goods and services wherever possible, measuring and targeting a reduction in their carbon footprint and promoting a business culture that encourages re-use and recycling.
