At Levi Strauss & Co, our longstanding environmental partner, the management encourages employees to give back on their own time throughout the year and through company-organized groups and events. Full-time employees are encouraged to take up to five hours per month of paid time off to volunteer at any organization of their choice.
The Community Day
Each May, they celebrate Community Day, an opportunity for Levi Strauss & Co. employees around the world to leave their offices to volunteer in communities where they live and work. The latest Community Day donated more than 16,000 hours of service to nonprofits around the globe. Employees in more than 100 cities volunteered and spent the day helping out at organizations worldwide.
The Climate Strike Week in Belgium
Levi’s employees in Belgium stood with the youth and advocates around the world taking part in the #ClimateStrike a month ago (in September). In many of their local offices around the world, they had also organized a set of activities around climate change and its impact.

Employee donations are matched to organizations year-round. We are extremely happy and grateful that Jane Goodall Institute Belgium is the recipient of the Levi’s team volunteering grant following the Brussels march for climate during the Climate Strike Week.
We would like to thank you and promise that we will keep fighting for a world where humans can live in harmony with animals and the environment!
We invite you to join the efforts of the Levi’s employees and other corporates around the globe and take immediate action to combat climate change and the various environmental threats we are facing nowadays.
