Social Impact

When our founder had an idea for a product that got people outdoors, he acted on it. This outdoor-enabling spirit lives on in L.L.Bean’s commitment to community, sustainable materials, environmental stewardship, and the well-being of our employees.


When we join forces outdoors with like-minded partners, the sky’s the limit. We’ve committed over $16 million in the past decade to protect the outdoors and make it more accessible to everyone.


Learn how L.L.Bean is lessening our environmental impact through the creation of our products and the efficiency of the buildings we make them in.

DEI Efforts

In 2020, we pledged to advance our diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts, making DEI one of our strategic corporate goals. Every day, we continue on this course of learning, and believe it is important to give insight into this crucial work.


Research shows the more time we spend outside, the more fulfilled, energized, and creative we are. It’s why we encourage our employees to get out there whenever possible.
