C&A, a leading fashion-retail business has announced the publication of its first global sustainability report. The report details C&A's 2015 progress toward the 2020 goals.

“In 2015, we focused on building strong governance and accountability to support our new sustainability strategy. Building sustainability into our business management system has been crucial to supporting our aspiration to create fashion with a positive impact,” said Jeffrey Hogue, C&A's global chief sustainability officer.

The report is a key component in a comprehensive new framework of corporate responsibility, with goals and key performance indicators (KPIs) focusing on sustainable products, supply and lives, where transparency, circular economy and gender serve as strategic lenses.

The report highlights C&A's name as the world's largest user of organic cotton by the Textile Exchange, and has increased the volume of more sustainable cotton used to 40 per cent. The company has also conducted first complete measurements of C&A's global carbon and water footprints, created a new sustainable chemicals management team and strategy, and completed independent chemicals management audits at 52 key fabric mills.

C&A has also launched a new code of conduct and audit process, supported by the disclosure of tier-1 and selected tier-2 factories in Asia and Europe. The company is committed to using 100 per cent responsible down standard (RDS) certified down in 2016. (NA)
