CSR profile:
At C&A, we believe everyone should be able to look and feel good every day, without compromising the quality of life of those who make our clothes, or the planet we source from. We want our customers to trust us to do the right thing, so they can buy our products without having to choose between what’s sustainable and what’s not. We are working towards a vision of the new normal – where sustainability is just another word for normal. To achieve our vision of fashion with a positive impact, our sustainability work is focused on the areas that are most relevant to our business and where we can have the biggest impact – our products, our supply chain and people’s lives.
