- H&M CEO Karl-Johan Persson awarded Sustainable Leadership Award by NMC Nätverket för Hållbart Näringsliv
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, 2016-Oct-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — NMC highlights Karl-Johan Persson’s courage to lead the fashion industry towards increased sustainability and systematic change. He is described as a source of inspiration for the entire fashion industry, within Sweden and globally.
“There is no doubt that this is a leader prioritising to push for long-term change when it comes to improving working conditions and closing the loop.”
Ylva Öhrnell, Chairman of NMC
NMC is also emphasising the importance of collaborating with others as well as anchoring the sustainability work with the top management to be able to work successfully with sustainability and thereby contribute to real change.
“For H&M, a sustainable leadership is about leading the way and about working long-term, instead of choosing simple solutions not leading to lasting change. This is key not only to a sustainable leadership but also for a sustainable approach in general. It’s a great honour to receive this award, but without dedicated colleagues striving to be at the forefront, this would not have been possible”, says Karl-Johan Persson.
The award was presented in Stockholm on October 13. For more information and images please read the NMC press release.
