Dear Sir or Madam,
I am referring to media reports about charges against C&A/sourcing from Xinjiang.
At C&A, we continue to investigate and act upon any allegations regarding our supply chain as we have done in previous cases related to this or any other topic.
C&A does not buy any clothing from manufacturers based in the province of Xinjiang, nor does it have any fabric or yarn factory under contract in this province. We do not tolerate forced labour or unauthorised subcontracting in our supply chain.
This is clearly stated and communicated in our Supplier Code of Conduct and verified through regular audits by our team. All our suppliers must sign and comply with our Code of Conduct as part of our contractual relationships and purchasing agreements.
Betty Kieß, Head of Corporate Communications Europe
