The international LACOSTE Foundation, founded in 2006 under the auspices of the "Fondation de France", helps young people to develop and find their way through sport and sporting values.
LACOSTE serves as the Official Apparel Sponsor of CityParks Tennis, which provides more than 7,000 New York City youth with free tennis and golf instruction and equipment.
LACOSTE is working to protect our logo by supporting the Everglades Foundation, which restores the ecosystem of the Everglades in Florida, one of the only places in the world where both alligators and crocodiles co-exist.
Two Ten Organization
The Two Ten Organization helps to provide emergency financial assistance, natural disaster recovery, educational scholarships, counseling services, and professional development programs that improve the lives and careers of the country’s 330,000 footwear employees and their families. Lacoste partners with them to provide volunteer opportunities, as well as donations to the cause.
Save our Species
Since 2018, the crocodile has made room for ten endangered species for a day each year. The edition of these limited polo shirts corresponds in each case to the number of specimens of the respective species still living in the wild. The profits made in the participating LACOSTE boutiques and online shop that day benefit the full amount of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and thus support species conservation.
At LACOSTE, our ‘better together’ values are the finishing touch on our corporate culture. They reflect who we are as individuals, what we believe in, and what is important to us. We recognize that for a lot of you, having the ability to volunteer is important, and it is our responsibility as a good corporate citizen to help enrich our surrounding neighborhoods. We encourage our employees to become involved by lending their voluntary support to programs that positively impact these communities, and we make efforts to organize volunteer events as group team building activities.
Open to All
Lacoste respects and celebrates each Associates’ contributions to our overall success and in 2019 we joined the Open to All Pledge, to take a stand for basic American values of fairness and equality. The primary goal of our workplace is not to restrict the rights of anyone but to better define them and protect the rights of all Associates and promote a productive and professional workplace for all.
