WWF & H&M Group Partnership:
10 year result report
Ten years have passed since WWF & H&M Group joined forces in a partnership, aiming to bring sustainable change to H&M Group’s value chain and the textile industry.
Together we have contributed to raise awareness on the industry’s main environmental issues, engaged suppliers and investors and inspired business peers to join in on collective action. Using a science-based approach, WWF and H&M Group are evaluating sustainable solutions for the benefit of the entire fashion industry. Partnership efforts strive to support UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Biodiversity underpins life but is declining rapidly worldwide. The textile industry has a large negative impact on nature and therefore an important role in protecting it. With more than half of the world’s GDP at risk from nature loss, protecting nature is an economic imperative.
Since the start in 2011, the partnership has contributed to joint efforts within water stewardship, climate action and biodiversity loss. Here are the results and the partnership’s story to date.
