C&A initiates to make fashion sustainable

Global fashion retailer C&A in association with C&A Foundation has taken initiative to make fashion sustainable and responsible, said its sustainable report. C&A focuses on transforming its supply chain to create fashion with a positive impact, while the foundation brings key actors together to drive the system change that will transform the industry.

"While we have achieved a lot, we still need to do much more to transform our industry," said Leslie Johnston, C&A Foundation executive director. "We need common standards, coherence throughout the value chain and measurable progress toward the UN sustainable development goals. Individual approaches and solutions only diminish our collective influence."

"The challenges we all face are so vast that we simply cannot work in isolation. But together, we are greater than the sum of our parts," added Johnston.

The firm has been working towards making consumer's shopping more sustainable without compromising the quality of life of those who making the clothes or the planet from where it is sourced, said C&A's 2016 global sustainability report.

C&A is committed to source 100 per cent more sustainable cotton by 2020 which has already allowed it to make some significant carbon and water reductions across its supply chain. Its sustainability work is focused on the areas that are most relevant to its business and where the company can have the biggest impact–products, supply chain and people’s lives. (RR)
