Thousands of mothers and children arriving as refugees in Europe reached by C&A initiative. C&A customers donated more than 500,000 euros over a one-and-a-half-year period to Save the Children to help refugees in Europe.
C&A Europe has launched a new down puffer jacket collection, the company’s first such collection that was produced with sustainability in mind and certified to the Responsible Down Standard (RDS). The exciting new collection strengthens C&A’s public commitment to the responsible sourcing of down and feathers. From fall 2016 onwards, all of the down and feathers in C&A’s products will be RDS-certified. The new range will be available in all C&A stores throughout Europe and online.
In pursuit of sourcing 100% of their cotton from more sustainable sources by 2020, C&A has received the Best Starter Award from the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI). In the fourth quarter of 2015, C&A purchased roughly 3000 tonnes of BCI cotton, making C&A the fastest starter of the 17 new BCI brands. It also lifts C&A to the top-10 tier of buyers, from among the 62 BCI-member brands.
