H&M sets good example and achieves AVANT-GARDE status according to the Detox Catwalk 2016 report from Greenpeace

Greenpeace has released the Detox Catwalk 2016 report, showing fashion companies’ progress towards zero discharge of hazardous chemicals in the fashion value chain. H&M stands in the best category thanks to our work in the supply chain for a stringent chemicals management.

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, 2016-Jul-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — As it is stated in the report from Greenpeace, H&M sets a good example and achieves AVANT-GARDE status with its clear approach to chemical management along the manufacturing supply chain. This status has been given thanks to the good performance shown in three criteria: a plan including a restriction substance list, PFCs elimination and transparent reporting.

“We applaud H&M, Zara and Benetton for leading the way and setting a new standard in toxic free fashion,” said Kirsten Brodde, Head of the Detox My Fashion campaign at Greenpeace Germany. “These companies prove that cleaning up the fashion industry is possible – both for large and medium-sized companies.”
