H&M among top five in Transparency Index 201825
Swedish fashion retailer Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) has been ranked fourth out of 150 brands and retailers by the Transparency Index, which evaluates transparency and working conditions in the fashion industry. The index by Fashion Revolution raises important concerns for the fashion industry, such as traceability, circularity and working conditions. H&M aims to develop a consumer labelling system that allows customers to compare products’ sustainability performance, also between different brands. For the second year in a row, H&M’S Conscious Exclusive collection will go one step further on traceability, offering extended and detailed information on product level at its online store. The company aims to use recycled or other sustainably sourced materials by 2030, to only use renewable energy for our own operations, or to offer our customers solutions for bringing their unwanted garments so we can give them a second life by reusing or recycling them.
