Our Suppliers’ Factory List
Continuously increasing transparency in our supply chain. Our relationships with our suppliers have been developed over many years. Building on the trust developed over this time, our suppliers must deliver the highest quality products, made in a way that is in line with our environmental and labour standards. We also emphasize transparency, which in turn leads to accountability. To this end, we monitor the human rights conditions in our supply chain to ensure our standards are upheld and continually improved. In keeping with our Transparency Pledge commitment, C&A discloses the location of all our suppliers’ tier 1 factories, printing and embroidery units, laundries and dye houses. We also disclose the majority of our suppliers’ spinning and fabric mills.
Our objective of disclosing our suppliers' factories is threefold:
Be completely transparent about where our products are made, so our customers and stakeholders can feel confident we’re making good choices.
Improve worker rights and increase worker voice within our suppliers' factories.
Provide a channel so that we can be alerted when issues are observed in our suppliers' factories and take immediate corrective action.
Our public disclosure on our supplier’s production units covers 100% of our tier-1 factories, printing and embroidery units, laundries and dye houses (we also disclose the majority of our suppliers’ spinning and fabric mills). We update this list every month to ensure that the information provided is up to date and relevant to our stakeholders. C&A uses for the public disclosure of its factories the Open Supply Hub.
As part of our commitment to continually increase transparency, we started to report on additional datapoints (sex disaggregated breakdown of workers, percentage of migrant workers, Trade Union, Independent Worker Committee and certification at each site wherever the data was made available through SLCP assessments or through our own Sustainable Supply Chain Program).
Disclaimer: In our effort to disclose more Fabric and Spinning Mills to the Open Supply Hub, our internal IT System is being updated. As a consequence of these changes, the list below currently does not contain all Mills. With the completion of the update, new data will be displayed here (Status: March 2023)
