H&M CEO awarded Sustainable Leadership Award

Oct '16
The CEO of Swedish apparel retailer H&M, Karl-Johan Persson has been awarded this year's Sustainable Leadership Award on October 13 by NMC Nätverket för Hållbart Näringsliv, a Swedish association for sustainable business. NMC described Karl-Johan Persson as a source of inspiration for the entire fashion industry, within Sweden and worldwide.

According to NMC, Persson has displayed the courage to lead the fashion industry towards increased sustainability and systematic change.

“There is no doubt that this is a leader prioritising to push for long-term change when it comes to improving working conditions and closing the loop," Ylva Öhrnell, chairman of NMC said.

“For H&M, a sustainable leadership is about leading the way and about working long-term, instead of choosing simple solutions not leading to lasting change,” Persson said. “This is the key not only to a sustainable leadership but also for a sustainable approach in general.” (AR)
