Lindex has taken the initiative to train all designers, buyers and production teams in design for circularity and the training will be a part of the introduction package for new staff as a basic requirement, says its sustainability report for 2017. The Sweden based company also signed the 2020 Circular Fashion System Commitment by Global Fashion Agenda.

In the sustainability report, the fashion company has highlighted the progress within several areas, as a result of dedicated sustainability work with partnership, innovation and transparency in the centre.

"I am very proud of the progress we have made within sustainability, which is thanks to the dedicated work of the Lindex employees and our partners. We will continue our sustainability journey and drive the change that is necessary for our future," said Elisabeth Peregi, interim CEO at Lindex.

In spring 2017 Lindex launched Re:Design, a collection of upcycled products made from Better Denim garments from previous seasons. In the making of the collection, Lindex explored new circular ways of working, using fewer resources and prolonging the garments’ lifetime, said the report. Lindex launched new Even Better Denim styles in autumn 2017. These were more sustainable than ever before with more sustainable materials, washing process, dyeing and trims. The styles were made with new innovative technology, using only two litres of water in the washing process.

During the year, Lindex launched WE Women by Lindex, a project where the fashion company takes action for gender equality in the supply chain and work to create more equal and inclusive workplaces, according to the report.

In June 2017, Lindex launched the initiative One Bag Habit in Sweden, together with industry peers, to reduce the consumption of shopping bags and increase awareness about bags negative impact on the environment. Since the launch Lindex has seen a significant change and only about 30 per cent of Lindex customers has chosen to buy a shopping bag. (RR)
