Together for responsible fashion
Building a Happy World starts with yourself. Our impact reaches the countries we operate in and the countries where our headquarters, warehouses, employees and partners are located. We invest in a more sustainable world, together with our people and partners that support us, with every single decision we make. Together, we bring sustainability to a higher level. Our partners share our mission of building a healthier, safer and more sustainable fashion industry.
Dutch Agreement on Sustainable Fashion and Textiles
We want to embed sustainable production in our business as much as possible. Our membership of the Dutch Agreement for Sustainable Fashion and Textiles helps us do this. This initiative by the Dutch government supports sustainable development across the entire sector, focusing on working conditions and sustainable materials. Being a member enables us to start relevant projects and partnerships on the themes that matter most. Together, we can turn the fashion industry into a more sustainable one!
