At Wolverine Worldwide, we believe that when you serve numerous communities, you don’t divide your commitment, you multiply it. For this reason, we established the Wolverine Worldwide Foundation, which today supports more than 190 charitable organizations that impact communities around the world, like 1% For The Planet, Two Ten Footwear Foundation, and The Conservation Alliance.
The spirit of community that permeates our company is also evident among Wolverine Worldwide team members. It is reflected by our associates’ thousands of volunteer hours and the substantial financial support given to those in need of assistance in the communities where we live and work. Every effort underscoring our belief that when we act together to do great things, great results are inevitable.

Over the years, Wolverine Worldwide has made significant progress toward fulfilling our commitment to reduce our current and future ecological footprint. We’ve done so through the employment of environmentally sustainable business practices that enhance our business, as well as our planet. Below are just a few of the green practices we’ve adopted that make us not only smarter consumers of our natural resources, but smarter consumers in general:
- Purchased renewable energy to power our Michigan-based headquarters
- Re-engineered the majority of our footwear packaging by abandoning traditional methods and materials in favor of 85% post-consumer recycled cardboard for boxes, 100% post-consumer recycled paper for packing tissues, biodegradable shoe forms and soy-based inks. Many boxes also feature adhesive-free construction
- Continued our support of environmental groups such as 1% For The Planet and the Conservation Alliance, as well as taking leadership roles supporting a wide variety of environmental stewardship and watershed protection projects. Other key organizations receiving our support include the Land Conservancy, the Blandford Nature Center, Habitat for Humanity, the National Parks Foundation, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and Outdoor Nation.
- Expanded company recycling and composting programs.
