C&A Foundation aims to transform fashion industry

Jun '17
C&A Foundation has announced its intention to transform the fashion industry into a force for good, says its annual report for 2016. The company has benefitted 75,000 cotton farmers, workers, and community members through its cotton, working conditions and forced labour programmes. It has also funded 26 new initiatives across all its programmes.

"Our vision is a global apparel industry based on dignity, fairness and the preservation and enhancement of natural capital," says Leslie Johnston, C&A Foundation executive director. "But it is not something we cannot do on our own. That is why we support and strengthen partners and platforms to be better able to inspire all of us to play our part."

The annual report launched by the foundation recently highlights the areas for improvement in fashion. Working with its partners, C&A Foundation is working to create change well beyond its direct influence. From Brazil to Bangladesh, C&A Foundation sparks change in areas that remain a challenge for the industry. This includes accelerating sustainable cotton, eradicating forced and child labour, improving working conditions, fostering a transition to a circular economy, and building resilience in vulnerable communities.
