Levis has taken necessary action to ensure that the largest percent of their raw material is being produced and handled in such ways which protect human rights, environment and also ensures the sustainability to support the adherence with Levis values and vision regarding empathy, originality and courage. The raw materials used at Levis is sourced from cotton on Ninety-five percent cases & the rest comes from other sources e.g animals by making sure that the health and treatment of any animals used is protected. Levis realizes that the production of cotton is very labor intensive and the crop itself requires water and pesticides while Levis is concerned about sustainability. Levis is perpetrated to work with other large consumers of cotton while supporting the use of less water and pesticides consumable cotton crops. To form a better cotton initiative which will help regulate global cotton production, they have teamed up with other major textile brands and retailers. Levis will not buy raw materials from the manufacturers using forced child labor.

Levis has find ways of using alternative freight sources rather than air by partnering with international transportation service and have also consolidated shipping wherever possible. These supply chain strategies are reflecting the vision and values as well as reduces costs and free up cash flow.
