Meet Helen Sahi, Senior Director, Sustainability

How I inspire my team:
I always encourage them to think bigger and to get outside of themselves. I also remind them that we need to understand and learn from everyone in our business, from the shop floor to the C-suite. We all offer valuable input and have a unique perspective.

What sparks my interest in a project:
First and foremost, I want to know that I can make a positive impact. I truly believe that individuals and organizations can be a force for good.

The biggest sustainability challenge facing apparel and footwear:
We work in an industry that wants to do the right thing while, at the same time, offer the best price possible. Until we start to measure and incorporate the true cost of this industry’s impact on people and the environment, we will constantly have this tension with sustainability and pricing. There are several companies whose business strategy is their sustainability strategy, and those purpose-driven companies are where innovation and creativity are unleashed. When you lead with purpose, profits will follow.
