C&A Sustainability



Our industry needs to change at a broader level, and that change starts with us.

At C&A we have a clear purpose: we inspire you every day to look, feel and do good. We want to offer our consumers high-quality, affordable, and stylish clothes that are manufactured in a more sustainable way.

We believe that business can be a force for good. Thus, sustainability plays an important role in our One C&A Growth Plan. To contribute positively and reduce negative impacts, we are pursuing a comprehensive sustainability strategy, in which we have clearly defined environmental and social goals. To reach those goals, we are also building alliances, work closely with industry partners and start-ups. We are convinced that operating in an open, transparent, and collaborative way will contribute to positive change and help our customers making more informed choices.

Our Sustainability Strategy

Our three strategic sustainability objectives are Renew & Restore, Innovate & Lead and Unite & Inspire. They form the foundation for our activities, which aim to minimize our environmental impact, push for more sustainable materials and circular fashion, and ensure decent working conditions and transparency.
