Our buying office is based in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, our designers, pattern makers and buyers, together with merchandisers in our production offices, create, plan and purchase our collections.
Based in one of our 21 production offices in Asia and Europe, merchandisers are the link between H&M’s buying office and our suppliers. They identify which suppliers to place orders with.
Also based in our production offices, our sustainability teams – consisting of more than 130 people – monitors suppliers’ compliance with our Sustainability Commiment (previously Code of Conduct) through our Full Audit Program (FAP) and support progress with actions that go beyond monitoring. Since February 2016, all suppliers are required to sign our Sustainability Commitment, an updated version of our Code of Conduct, adapted to our way of working with sustainability today.
