Our purpose - Li & Fung

About LF

Our purpose

We aspire to deliver value in global supply chains by living our values around people, partners and planet.

At Li & Fung, value has tangible meaning and we strive to deliver value to our stakeholders with each and every interaction. We also live by our values of humility, entrepreneurship and family and they are at the core of our relationship with our people, our partners and our commitment to reduce the harmful impact of our industry on the planet.

Our values

Our values form the basis of our culture, our brand and our business strategies. They define how we engage with our colleagues, with our customers and suppliers, our shareholders and the communities in which we live and work. Our values are the essence of who we are.

We value humility

We have grown from humble beginnings to become a leading global supply chain orchestrator – helping brands and retailers around the world withstand disruption. Yet the humility that permeated the organization through its founders is still evident today.

We value entrepreneurship

Identifying the opportunity to meet customer needs in faraway markets, two entrepreneurs joined forces to source local Chinese products, creating Li & Fung in 1906. That same entrepreneurial spirit of agility and simplicity is very much alive today and continues to drive the way we support our customers, suppliers, industry and communities to grow. We believe in keeping things simple so we can be agile with true entrepreneurial spirit. We look for opportunities for growth and embrace change as we constantly learn, try new things, and connect with new people for the benefit of our people and partners.

We value family

People are at the core of what we do and always have been. We care about each other; and we care about creating a sustainable and inclusive future together. 

Trust and integrity are the cornerstones of all of this and the tremendous faith we put in our people translates to exceptional experiences for our customers.

We are in it for the long term. We value long-lasting relationships with our partners – our people, suppliers, customers and communities. We strive to be the change we want to see, by creating a healthy and empowering workplace culture and by giving back to our communities.
