Community and Partner Sustainability
Community and Partner Sustainability is lululemon athletica’s department of corporate social responsibility (CSR).  We chose to define our team in these words because our focus is on people and relationships, both the impacts we have on them and with them.  We lead the charge on how we are being responsible community members from factory to store, as you’ll see by our corporate social and environmental responsibility activities and our strong partnership with our vendor communities.
