Lindex sustainability report shows dedicated work

Lindex, a European fashion retailer, released its sustainability report for 2015 which shows dedicated sustainable work by the retailer in many areas.

Its sustainable activities include an increase in the production of sustainable garments by 64 per cent in 2015, huge donations for fighting breast cancer and empowering women with health education.

The retailer has improved its production processes resulting in the use of less water, energy and chemicals. As a result, almost all of Lindex denim is now produced with more sustainable processes as well as of sustainable cotton.

The fashion company strived to empower women through Herhealth projects in Bangladesh, Pakistan and India. It educated 12,000 women - nearly 50 per cent of female workers in the supply chain – in the subjects pertaining to hygiene, personal health and nutrition.

Last year was a great year for Lindex in its fight against breast cancer. It made a donation of Euro 1.3 million.

Commenting on its 11th sustainability report, Ingvar Larsson, CEO of Lindex said, “We work dedicatedly towards our target that 80 per cent of our garments be made from sustainable sources by 2020, and we have already achieved 42 per cent of the target by 2015.”

“To act sustainable is a key value at Lindex, and it influences everything we do. I am very proud of the many great results that we have achieved so far,” he said. (MCJ)
