Joining forces with others

Joining forces with others

The sustainability challenges within the global retail business affect everyone in the industry. These challenges are often universal issues that no company can solve on its own. We also often share suppliers with other retail brands. Collaborating with industry peers can therefore help to increase the level of influence we have on a particular issue where working alone we would have less influence.

We see sharing best practice and developing ways to jointly tackle common challenges as a key way to take our sustainability work further and make the whole industry more sustainable. To deliver on this approach we are involved in a number of forums that aim to improve collaboration between different companies in our industry.

Beyond collaboration between brands, multistakeholder initiatives are some of the best ways to create dialogue between different partners and to build a consensus on how to tackle issues that concern all partners equally. Besides our strong affiliation with the Fair Labor Association (FLA), the UN Global Compact, the Sustainable Apparel Coalition and a number of other global or industry-wide initiatives, H&M is actively involved in several local or national multi-stakeholder initiatives.
