Policy on Political Contributions

L Brands engages with government agencies and officials to foster dialogue on policy matters that impact our company’s business agenda.

In the course of advocating on policy matters and building relationships with government officials, L Brands may make contributions to political candidates and committees (including those devoted to ballot initiatives or referenda), consistent with federal, state, and local laws.  These contributions may come from a political action committee (“PAC”) sponsored by L Brands or from corporate funds.

L Brands PAC Board of Trustees, identified below, participate in all PAC and corporate contribution decisions.

When considering a proposed contribution to a candidate, the following are among the factors the Board of Trustees may consider:

  • Does the candidate represent a community where we live, work, or our products are made?
  • Does the candidate serve on a committee with jurisdiction over matters that may impact our business?
  • Does the candidate demonstrate support for public policy issues that are important to our business agenda?
  • Is the candidate an emerging leader?

When considering a proposed contribution to a political committee, the following are among the factors the Board of Trustees may consider:

  • Is the committee devoted to an issue or ballot measure that may impact our business agenda?
  • Is the committee associated with a candidate or officeholder consistent with the candidate criteria described above?
