H&M, a Sweden-based fashion retailer for clothing and apparel, is participating at the ongoing COP21 conference being held at Paris, France to show its support towards sustainability and climate change agendas, according to a press statement released by the company.

The retailer understands that climate change is a point of worry in modern times, and asks for initiatives in this direction. The retailer understands that climate change needs to be controlled, and is attending the conference as an extension to its support with expertise from its sustainability department.

Commenting on the participation, Anna Gedda, head of sustainability at H&M said, “We are committed to provide our customers with fashion and quality at the best price in a sustainable way. This includes how we operate in our own operation, our value chain and communities around the globe where we have a presence.”

“Our commitment to 100 percent renewable energy and our work to influence policy makers to a carbon free future are two examples how H&M contributes to a safe climate generations to come,” she says.

H&M is one of the first companies in the world to start setting goals on the value chain according to planetary boundaries, ie what scientists say the planet demands in order to stay within a safe temperature. (MCJ)
