Lindex has released its sustainability report for 2015. It shows an increase in the amount of sustainable garments by 64% compared to previous year, work with health education to women in supply chain, 1.3 million euro in donations to the fight against breast cancer and improved production processes with less environmental impact.
‘To act sustainable is a key value at Lindex and it influences everything we do. I am very proud of the many great results that we have achieved so far. We work dedicatedly towards our target that 80 percent of our garments will med made from sustainable sources by 2020 and we have already achieved 42 percent by 2015’, says Ingvar Larsson, Lindex CEO.
Lindex writes that the chain has improved their production processes with the results of using less water, energy and chemicals. As a result almost all of Lindex denim is now produced with more sustainable processes as well as being made of sustainable cotton. This commitment to the use of sustainable fibers and processes was launched in the campaign Better Denim – now and forever.
