H&M Foundation and UNICEF launch new initiative to make early childhood development programmes more accessible to children with disabilities

H&M Foundation and UNICEF launch new initiative to make early childhood development programmes more accessible to children with disabilities

 

H&M Foundation and UNICEF have launched a new partnership to support young children, in particular those with disabilities. The initiative is worth SEK 30 million (USD 3.7 million) and one aim is to reach more than 9,000 young children with disabilities and their family members with specialized early childhood development services over the next three years.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 2017-Nov-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — During the earliest years of life, love, good nutrition, protection, and stimulating activities such as play, singing and early learning give young children the best possible chance of reaching healthy brain development. Yet, millions of young children around the world, in particular those with disabilities, are deprived of these critical experiences and are growing up in unsafe and unstimulating environments.

“When the brains and bodies of young children are protected from violence and pollution, stimulated through love, play and early learning activities, and nurtured with responsive caregiving and nutritious food, they have the best possible chance of developing fully, learning effectively, and contributing to their economies and societies when they reach adulthood,” says Pia Britto, UNICEF Chief of Early Childhood Development.

The initiative aims to scale up existing UNICEF early childhood development programmes in Bulgaria, Peru and Uganda to make them more accessible and tailored to the needs of children with disabilities and their families. Around 20,000 family members and caregivers will be reached with support to help them provide young children with the good nutrition, stimulation and protection they need through health, education and social services.

“Through our new partnership with UNICEF, we hope to transform the lives and futures of thousands of young children with disabilities. We hope this initiative inspires the private sector to invest in children’s early years – helping them reach their full health, happiness, wellbeing and learning ability, says Diana Amini, Global Manager at H&M Foundation.

The support provided to UNICEF’s early childhood development programmes through the partnership will help better assess babies and young children for disabilities and developmental delays, improving their chance of receiving specialised early childhood development care at the earliest opportunity. Creating a more inclusive support system aims to reduce discrimination that young children with disabilities may face.

“UNICEF is grateful to H&M Foundation for its commitment to helping provide life-changing support to young children, in particular those with disabilities.”

Pia Britto, UNICEF

Giving young children with disabilities the best chance of reaching their optimal development also helps considerably reduce the costs of special education, unemployment and institutionalization.

This initiative is the newest in a longstanding partnership between H&M Foundation and UNICEF, who have collaborated since 2014 to provide quality education and early learning opportunities for the most vulnerable children.

H&M Foundation and HKRITA find groundbreaking solutions to recycle blend textiles into new fabrics and yarns

H&M Foundation and HKRITA find groundbreaking solutions to recycle blend textiles into new fabrics and yarns

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 2017-Sep-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — The four-year innovative partnership between the non-profit H&M Foundation and The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA) finds groundbreaking solutions to recycle blend textiles into new fabrics and yarns – without any quality loss – through a hydrothermal (chemical) process. The technology will be scaled up and made available to the global fashion industry. The finding is a major breakthrough in the journey towards a closed loop for textiles.

“For too long the fashion industry has not been able to properly recycle its products, since there’s no commercially viable separation, sorting, and recycling technology available for the most popular materials such as cotton and polyester blends. This very encouraging finding has the potential to change that. We are very excited to develop this technology and scale it beyond the laboratory, which will benefit the global environment, people and communities,” says Erik Bang, Innovation Lead at H&M Foundation.

The aim of the Closed-Loop Apparel Recycling Eco-System Program is to find at least one ready technology to recycle clothes made from blend textiles, within the four-year project period. One year into the partnership, HKRITA has together with Ehime University and Shinshu University in Japan, successfully developed a hydrothermal (chemical) process to fully separate and recycle cotton and polyester blends. The recovered polyester material can be reused directly, without any quality loss. The hydrothermal process uses only heat, water and less than 5% biodegradable green chemical, to self-separate cotton and polyester blends. This fibre-to-fibre recycling method is cost effective, and there’s no secondary pollution to the environment, ensuring the life of the recycled material is prolonged in a sustainable way. The technology will be licensed widely to ensure broad market access and maximum impact.

“By being able to upcycle used textiles into new high value textiles, we no longer need to solely rely on virgin materials to dress a growing world population. This is a major breakthrough in the pursuit of a fashion industry operating within the planetary boundaries.”

Edwin Keh, Chief Executive Officer of HKRITA.

The H&M Foundation initiated the partnership with HKRITA in September 2016. It is backed by an estimated 5.8 million euros of funding, with HKRITA conducting the research and work to commercialise the outcomes. The Innovation and Technology Fund of the Hong Kong SAR Government also provides additional substantial funding and support. The total project investment is estimated to around 30 million euros during the four-year collaboration (2016-2020), which makes it one of the biggest and most comprehensive efforts ever for textile recycling.

It is H&M’s customers’ engagement that have enabled this important research, as the exact financial contribution is determined by the annual surplus from H&M’s global in-store garment collecting program, which is donated to H&M Foundation. To date the H&M Foundation has donated 2.4 million euros to HKRITA.

The collaboration is part of H&M Foundation´s commitment within its focus area Planet, which initiatives all have the aim to safeguard not only the planet but also the living conditions for people and communities around the world.

The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel was established in 2006 and is a publicly funded applied research center. It is one of five applied research centers sponsored by the Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. HKRITA engages in applied mid- and down-stream research to support the textile and apparel industries, to drive sustainable improvements, and to drive improvements for society.

The Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF), administered by the Innovation and Technology Commission, aims to increase the added value, productivity and competitiveness of our economic activities. The Government hopes that, through the ITF, Hong Kong companies could be encouraged and assisted to upgrade their technological level and introduce innovative ideas to their businesses.

H&M Foundation supports humanitarian relief works in South Asia with special focus on children’s education

H&M Foundation supports humanitarian relief works in South Asia with special focus on children’s education

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 2017-Sep-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — In addition to the human tragedy that follows in the wake of South Asia’s worst flooding in years, Save the Children warns that children´s education and long-term well-being is also put at risk. H&M foundation donates important support to Save the Children´s work in India and Bangladesh where 1.3 million children are currently out of school.

Due to the severe situation, the H&M Foundation has decided to donate $200,000 to Save the Children’s humanitarian relief work. Aside from helping provide basic necessities like food, clean drinking water and shelter, the donation will have a special focus on education. Hundreds of thousands of children could fall permanently out of the school system if education isn’t prioritized in the relief efforts,” says Diana Amini, Global Manager H&M Foundation.

The floods have had a huge impact on education institutions right across the region with more than 12,000 schools damaged or destroyed in India and 4,000 in Bangladesh. In some areas schools have been suspended for several weeks. However, there are teaching staff available, learning materials and attendance is low because students are trying to survive the floods with their families.

“Education is a critical factor in this kind of emergency response. Lost education jeopardizes the safety of children and can increase the risk of child labor and trafficking.”

Elisabeth Dahlin, CEO Save the Children Sweden

Save the Children is helping support education in India and Bangladesh. The aid agency has set up temporary learning spaces so classes can resume immediately, distributed back to school kits with basic learning materials and is providing psychosocial support to students affected by the floods.

Aside from education, Save the Children is also distributing tarpaulins for temporary shelter, running special playgroups for children to help them recover and distributing relief items including hygiene kits, food packages, clean drinking water, kitchen kits and cash for basic necessities.

H&M Foundation unveils 500 outstanding female business leaders in Foundation 500 list

H&M Foundation unveils 500 outstanding female business leaders in Foundation 500 list

 

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 2017-Jun-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — 500 outstanding business leaders growing their companies in the harshest of startup environments. No, we’re not talking about Silicon Valley. With Foundation 500 – a list of successful female business leaders from emerging markets – the non-profit H&M Foundation and humanitarian agency CARE want to challenge stereotypes and re-define what a business leader looks like. Why? It can help reduce poverty and achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals on Women’s Empowerment and Gender Equality.

Launched today at foundation500.com, the list is a reference to the famous Fortune 500 list by Fortune Magazine. But the Foundation 500 reveals a different story. By presenting power portraits and stories of women entrepreneurs from emerging markets in the same manner business magazines usually portray male business leaders, H&M Foundation and CARE’s message is that empowering women is one of the most effective ways to break the cycle of poverty and create economic growth. Entire economies lose out when a substantial part of the population can´t realize its full potential.

“The entrepreneur is the hero of our time, and it is estimated that over the coming years over 1 billion women will enter the workforce – a majority through entrepreneurship. But, you can’t be what you can’t see. Women rarely make the covers of business magazines, in fact the last time a woman was on the cover of Fortune Magazine was October 2014. With the Foundation 500 list we want to re-define what a business leader looks like,” says Diana Amini, Global Manager at H&M Foundation.

The Foundation 500 list includes the owner of West Ivory Coast’s first bus company, a CEO from Indonesia growing her business by the means of Facebook and the President of a Peruvian Trout Farmers Association. The global public and media are invited to explore and share the stories, images and behind the scenes material available at foundation500.com.

”Born with zero privilege, the women portrayed in the Foundation 500 list have made their own fortunes in the harshest of startup-environments. Yet, their stories often go untold. I wish I had seen women like these on the cover of business magazines when I grew up in South Sudan.”

Alek Wek, British/Sudanese Supermodel, Entrepreneur and H&M Foundation Ambassador

The backbone of the Foundation 500 is the learnings from the Global Program on Empowering Women through Enterprise Development initiated by H&M Foundation and CARE in 2014. The women on the Foundation 500 list are part of this program, which in its first phase has reached over 100,000 women in Burundi, Côte d’Ivoire, Guatemala, Indonesia, Jordan, Nepal, Peru, Philippines, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Yemen and Zambia. In Burundi, the average rate of increase in income among women in the program was 202.8%, the lowest being 104% and the highest 401%. Due to the success, a renewed three-year commitment is made.

“During 2014-2020, H&M Foundation pledges 120 million Swedish krona ($14 million/€12 million) to support over 200,000 women entrepreneurs from emerging markets with seed capital and skills training to start and expand their businesses. If the world is to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals on Women’s Empowerment and Gender Equality, the time to act is now,” says Karl-Johan Persson, Board member H&M Foundation and CEO H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB.

NOTES TO EDITORS

  • In 2016, Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women and Girls became a stand-alone goal included in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by world leaders at a UN Summit.
  • Economic empowerment of women minimizes their dependency but also improves the lives of the society surrounding them, since women tend to reinvest money in their families, children and communities.
  • The portraits included in the Foundation 500 list have been shot by Malin Fezehai, a New York based photographer and filmmaker that has been the recipient of a 2015 World Press Photo Award, the Wallis Annenberg Prize and was named one of the 30 Emerging Photographers to watch in 2015 by Photo District News.
  • The mix of the 500 women on the list is a representation of all 100,000 women participating in the Global Program. Some of them have just established their business, some have been running their business for a while and some are experienced CEO´s by now with expansion plans. There´s no ranking – they all do tremendous work, and have established businesses in the harshest of startup-environments, often in sectors traditionally dominated by men.

H&M Foundation makes new commitment to improving education, clean water and women’s economic empowerment

Stockholm, SWEDEN, 2017-May-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — With a donation of $20.5 million and three new Global Programs the non-profit H&M Foundation makes a new strong commitment to long-lasting improvements in education, clean water and women’s economic empowerment. The goal is not only to transform lives for some of the world’s poorest, but also to influence national, regional and global agendas to work towards an equal society.

The new three-year partnerships with UNICEF (Education), WaterAid (Clean water) and CARE (Women’s economic empowerment) build on the achievements and learnings made in the previous Global Programs which ended in January 2017. With this new pledge, the total donation since 2014 to the Global Programs is 360 million Swedish krona ($41 million/€37 million).

So far, over 100,000 children are reached with education, over 250,000 school children have access to clean water and toilets and 100,000 women are empowered to start or expand their businesses. In addition, dialogues with governments have resulted in more resources to education and implementation of clean water, improved hygiene and sanitation in some of the poorest parts of the world. Due to the success of these programs, a renewed three-year commitment is now made.

“We’ve seen that our programs can make real change and that makes both the H&M Foundation and our partner organizations very eager to move into the next gear. With our insights from the first three years, we are well-equipped to create even more impact together in the years to come.“

Diana Amini, Global Manager, H&M Foundation

To make even more impact, all three programs include a component to break new ground. UNICEF will develop a tool to highlight the relevance of Early Childhood Development efforts for tolerance, cooperation and respect to prevent conflicts and bring communities together. CARE will launch a pioneering Global Report on the economic and social value of investing in women’s enterprise development and WaterAid will share learnings and best practice on how to deliver long lasting access to water, sanitation and hygiene services.

“There is a constant need for new partnerships and innovative solutions and the H&M Foundation will continue to be a catalyst for positive change for the planet, communities and people. It is a long-term commitment from my family and this work has just begun,” says Karl-Johan Persson, Board member, H&M Foundation and CEO H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB.

In a recently launched Impact Report 2013-2016, H&M Foundation has compiled all its efforts so far, and the progress is also described in a short film.

”Nearly 250 million children under the age of five in developing countries are at risk of poor development. We rely on support from our partners to reach the most vulnerable and excluded children to help change their life paths.

H&M Foundation donates $100,000 to The Red Cross to support flood victims in Peru

Due to heavy rainfall, Peru is suffering the worst floods in almost 30 years. The H&M Foundation has donated $100,000 to The Red Cross to support people who have been affected by the extreme weather, and give them support to rebuild their lives.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 2017-May-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — Hundreds of thousands of people have lost everything and need support to rebuild their lives. Due to the severe situation, the H&M Foundation have decided to donate $100,000 to The Red Cross to quickly be able to support in the emergency relief work in Peru”, says Diana Amini, Global Manager H&M Foundation.

Since December last year, heavy rains have drenched northern Peru with 10 times more rainfall than normal. It has caused rivers to overflow, landslides, hail and electric storms. Although the impact has been particularly serious in the northern coastal regions, levels of affectation are reported in all 24 of the country’s departments. In eleven of the departments a state of emergency has been declared.

To this date over 1.2 million people have been affected, of which one third are children and adolescents. Homes, hospitals, schools and other buildings as well as roads have been destroyed, along with thousands of hectares of crops, which directly impacts access to food. This disaster, which has caused 114 deaths and 18 people who remain missing, continues to disrupt the normal activities of children, adolescents, adults and the elderly in the affected regions.

While 59 schools have collapsed and 113 cannot be used, another 2,150 have been damaged. A combined total of 770 health centers has been damaged, collapsed or cannot be used. In addition to health needs, livelihoods and food security issues are challenges.

The support from the H&M Foundation of $100,000 will be used for disaster relief activities undertaken by the Red Cross. Since the response from donors have been very low, the focus is on emergency actions. The emergency phase actions aim to ensure that the targeted population receives appropriate assistance with a focus on the sectors of health, water, sanitation and hygiene promotion, shelter, food security, livelihoods and restoring family links.

“The people of Northern Peru are experiencing the worst disaster in decades. Therefore, all the good forces must unite and help the children, women and men affected by this. Our immediate response efforts in Peru will focus on water, sanitation and hygiene”, says Melker Måbeck, International Director The Swedish Red Cross.

ABOUT THE RED CROSS

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian network that reaches 150 million people in 190 National Societies through the work of over 17 million volunteers. Together, we act before, during and after disasters and health emergencies to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people. We do so without discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions.

In addition, a trend report is released today (6 APR, 2017) highlighting learnings about the future of sustainable fashion by looking at the thousands of disruptive ideas from 130 different countries.

To speed up the shift to a circular waste-free fashion industry, the non-profit H&M Foundation initiated Global Change Award in 2015, calling for game-changing ideas that can help reinvent the entire industry.The online vote was held 27 March to 2 April, and the votes are placed:

“The Global Change Award is the first of its kind challenge for early stage innovation in fashion and we are impressed by the level of bold creativity and disruptive innovation shown by the five award winners.”

Jill Standish, Senior Managing Director of Retail at Accenture

“I congratulate all five winning teams. They have the potential to help reinvent the fashion industry, enabling products and resources to have more than one life.

The program will help the winners develop their ideas, focusing on three main areas; circular economy, innovation and fashion industry connection.

“Consumer expectations for more sustainable products are placing an emphasis on the industry to fundamentally re-examine and re-design the entire fashion value chain. The Global Change Award is the first of its kind challenge for early stage innovation in fashion and we are impressed by the level of bold creativity and disruptive innovation shown by the five award winners. We are passionate about helping them further develop their inspiring ideas through the Accelerator program, to support them in driving the change towards a circular fashion industry,” said Jill Standish, Senior Managing Director of Retail at Accenture.

“Sustainable development is one of KTH’s pillars and as a world-class university of technology we’re an obvious engine and knowledge hub for this. These five amazing innovations can contribute in building a sustainable future and we look forward to kick off the one year accelerator program with the winners,” says Sigbritt Karlsson, President of KTH.

Global Change Award has quickly become the fashion industry’s hot spot for circular innovation, and now a Trend Report gathering the learnings so far is released today by Accenture and the H&M Foundation. It puts the spotlight on what to learn about the future of sustainable fashion by looking at the disruptive ideas from 130 countries competing in the Global Change Award. The report outlines interesting findings and trends within circular fashion and open innovation, based on analytics performed on the close to 3,000 applications submitted for the second Global Change Award.

H&M Foundation and UNICEF create digital, interactive jacket that help stimulate child’s brain development

H&M Foundation and UNICEF create digital, interactive jacket that help stimulate child’s brain development

 

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, 2016-Oct-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — The digital, interacive jacket, created by  H&M Foundation and UNICEF as part of the UNI_FORM campaign, provides innovative, age-appropriate play ideas that can help stimulate brain development during early childhood. It also shows parents and caregivers the critical importance of nourishing a young child’s brain. On theuniform.org, adults and children can interact with the UNI_FORM and at the same time support the right for every child to get the best start in life.

The jacket reveals different cognitive games that feed the brain, as it evolves with the child´s age. The games are tailored for each age based on UNICEF’s research on Early Childhood Development.

“Early childhood presents a window of opportunity that define a child’s future. By using UNI_FORM as a symbol, we want to raise awareness around the fact that children who are stimulated in their early years learn more effectively at school, and as adults they can have a higher earning power and be of better health than children that don’t have these early opportunities,” said Diana Amini, Global Manager at  H&M Foundation.

“Children who experience love, proper nutrition and protection in a stimulating environment during early childhood become resilient, learn effectively and are able to help build strong, safe communities and economies when they reach adulthood,” said Pia Britto UNICEF Chief of Early Childhood Development.

“We are proud to launch this interactive tool to help give children the enrichment they need in these critical early moments of life.”

Pia Britto UNICEF Chief of Early Childhood Development

Nearly 250 million children in low- and middle-income countries lack the nutrition, stimulation, nurturing and responsive care they need to develop healthy brain functions. Early deprivations rob children of a fair chance to pursue fulfilling futures, which also can trigger a cycle of inequality that can continue for generations.

During the earliest moments of life, children’s experiences have the power to shape the development of their brains as much as their DNA, as neural connections take place at a once-in-a lifetime speed of up to 1,000 per second, forming their cognitive, social and emotional development.

UNI_FORM is not part of a collection or for sale.

NOTES TO EDITORS

ABOUT THE UNI_FORM CAMPAIGN

The UNI_FORM features a range of games that highlight the critical milestones in a child’s development and the opportunities to stimulate and foster these skills. All these stages are highlighted through a game which is embedded in the UNI_FORM digital jacket:

  • Age One: Building blocks – focus on strengthening motor skills and eye-to-hand coordination that takes place in this phase of a child’s development.
  • Age Two: Fantasy building – games linked to children’s creative development, like shape, colour and crayons.
  • Age Three: Imitating animals – focus on the urge to create and encourage children to use their imagination and express their feelings.
  • Age Four: Perception of time – playing with a magical clock sparks a conversation and develops the child’s sense of time.
  • Age Five: Identifying emotions – exploration of emotions through different expressions.

ABOUT THE GLOBAL PROGRAM FOR EDUCATION

The UNI_FORM campaign is part of the Global Program for Education – a collaboration between H&M Foundation and UNICEF. In February 2014, the H&M Foundation announced a grant to UNICEF of USD 9.3 million over a three year period. This grant enables UNICEF to reach 73,600 children with Early Childhood Development programs as well as influence governments to place Early Childhood Development on the national agenda and commit budgetary resources to address these issues. Few donors or governments prioritize funding for Early Childhood Development, which is why the H&M Foundation wants to contribute to filling that gap by supporting UNICEF.

H&M Foundation and The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel partner to develop technologies to recycle textiles

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, 2016-Sep-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — Today it is possible to mechanically recycle single fibre fabrics such as denim jeans and wool sweaters. However garments are very often made from a blend of different fibres to improve fit, style, comfort and longevity.  Used apparel of blended or unknown materials are either discarded in landfills, or downcycled into insulation, carpeting, and other low value applications.

H&M Foundation is working with HKRITA to develop a series of research projects with a contribution of Euro 5.8 million. HKRITA will conduct the research and work to commercialize the outcomes. The Innovation and Technology Fund of the Hong Kong SAR Government will provide additional substantial research funding and support.

“This is one of the biggest and most comprehensive efforts ever for textile recycling. The overall aim for us as a Foundation is to protect the planetary boundaries and work to ensure living conditions. We want to develop at least one ready technology to recycle clothes made from textile blends into new clothes. This would be a major breakthrough in the journey towards a closed loop for textiles in the fashion industry.” says Erik Bang, Project Manager at H&M Foundation.

“HKRITA is very excited about the work in this series of applied research projects.  We look forward to providing practical solutions to a pressing local and global challenge.  We are grateful to partner with H&M Foundation for making our work possible. Sustainability is one of our key research focuses. We aim to develop technologies that are scalable and commercially viable.” says Edwin Keh, Chief Executive Officer of The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel.

The exact financial contribution from H&M Foundation is determined by the surplus from H&M’s global in-store garment collecting program, which is donated to H&M Foundation. Half of this donation is allocated to research on textile recycling. To date the H&M Foundation has donated EUR 1.6 million to HKRITA.

The H&M Foundation, which initiated the global innovation challenge Global Change Award in 2015, had been looking for a world leading research institute to accelerate research on textile recycling, and found HKRITA to be the perfect match. H&M Foundation is the initiator and main funder of the research project 2016-2020 and HKRITA is co-funding. HKRITA, a publically funded applied research center, is the leader in practical and useful research in the textile and apparel area.

The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel was established in 2006 and is a publicly funded applied research center. It’s one of five applied research centers sponsored by the Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. HKRITA engages in applied mid- and down-stream research to support the textile and apparel industries, to drive sustainable improvements, and to drive improvements for society.

The Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF), administered by the Innovation and Technology Commission, aims to increase the added value, productivity and competitiveness of our economic activities. The Government hopes that, through the ITF, Hong Kong companies could be encouraged and assisted to upgrade their technological level and introduce innovative ideas to their businesses.

H&M Foundation is a non-profit global foundation, privately funded by the Stefan Persson family, founders and main owners of the fashion company H&M. The mission of the Foundation is to create long lasting positive change and improve living conditions by investing in communities, people and innovative ideas.

H&M Foundation opens the second Global Change Award

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, 2016-Sep-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — Clothing made of citrus by-products, microbes that digest waste polyester, and an online marketplace for textile leftovers are some of the five disruptive ideas that shared the first €1 million Global Change Award grant in 2015. The challenge is designed to spur early innovations that can accelerate the shift from a linear to a circular fashion industry, with the aim of protecting the planet and our living conditions. On September 1st, the non-profit H&M Foundation opens the second Global Change Award.

Initiated by H&M Foundation in 2015, the first Global Change Award received more than 2,700 applications from 112 countries. How the €1 million grant was shared between the five winners was up to the public to decide through an online vote at globalchangeaward.com.

“After seeing so many fantastic innovations from around the world with the potential to transform the fashion industry, we have been very eager to open up the next round of the Global Change Award. I am also honored to welcome some new members to the expert panel like Dame Ellen MacArthur, who besides making solo sailor history in 2005, has immense knowledge about the transition to a circular economy,” says Karl-Johan Persson, board member of the H&M Foundation and CEO of H&M.

Making the fashion industry circular is not just about recycling. To encourage ideas from a broader scope Global Change Award 2016 has three categories open for applications: Circular business models covering ideas on how to reuse, repair, share, digitalize or extend the life of products. Circular materials looking for ideas on new fibers, recycling techniques, leather substitutes etc and Circular processes aiming to find new methods around chemicals, water and dyeing, as well as 3D printing, demand-driven manufacturing etc.

“By bringing together innovators to develop positive solutions, the Global Change Award is a great example of the approach needed to create change, and help shift the fashion industry towards a restorative and regenerative circular economy. I am excited to join the expert panel to help find the next five innovations that can be truly game-changing,” says Dame Ellen MacArthur, Founder of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

Other members of the expert panel to help identify the best innovations for Global Change Award 2016 include Amber Valletta, Ellis Rubinstein, Rebecca Earley, Franca Sozzani, David Roberts (new), Lewis Perkins (new), Vikram Widge (new) and Johan Kuylenstierna (new). Besides the grant, the winners also get access to a one year Innovation Accelerator organized by the H&M Foundation, in partnership with Accenture and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. It is designed to help ensure the innovations can stand on their own as quickly as possible, and to maximize their impact on the industry.

By catalysing green, truly ground-breaking ideas, the Global Change Award takes on one of the biggest challenges facing today’s fashion industry – creating fashion for a growing population, while improving its impact on the environment. H&M Foundation initiated the challenge to speed up this process for the entire fashion industry, and neither the H&M Foundation nor the company H&M take any equity or intellectual property rights in the innovations. The aim is to influence the fashion industry as a whole.

WaterAid and H&M Foundation host new exhibition Noori Tales: Stories from the Indus Delta by award-winning photographer Malin Fezehai

WaterAid and H&M Foundation host new exhibition Noori Tales: Stories from the Indus Delta by award-winning photographer Malin Fezehai
WaterAid and H&M Foundation host new exhibition Noori Tales: Stories from the Indus Delta by award-winning photographer Malin Fezehai

 

Stockholm, Sweden, 2016-Aug-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — Award-winning photographer Malin Fezehai travelled with WaterAid to the Thatta region in southeastern Pakistan to document the effects of climate change and water scarcity on the lives of schoolchildren living in the Indus River Delta. Pakistan is highly vulnerable to climate change due to its geography, high dependence on agriculture and limited water resources. Flooding, salinisation of groundwater and high temperatures are all on the increase, with potentially devastating consequences.

With the 31 images in this exhibition, Malin takes us on a journey through the canals and inlets of the Indus River Delta, as they flow from one of Pakistan’s largest and most beautiful lakes, the Keenjhar – the source of drinking water for Karachi’s 16.6 million inhabitants – through to the schools and communities in the region.

Global Program for Clean Water
Today, 650 million people globally live without safe water, and 2.3 billion don’t have adequate sanitation. But when water, sanitation and hygiene education is improved in schools, better health brings improved attendance and it creates a better learning environment that enhances performance. Gender equality is improved, since girls do not need to drop out of school or attend sporadically when they have their periods and there are no toilets available.

WaterAid and the H&M Foundation have partnered for the three-year, SEK 60 million Global Program for Clean Water which aims to provide sanitation, water and hygiene promotion in schools, with a view to improving health and education and transforming children’s futures. The partnership is working to give 250,000 children globally access to clean water and sanitation in schools by 2017. One of the areas supported by the Global Program is Thatta.

H&M Foundation makes second donation to Save the Children’s emergency work in Ethiopia

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, 2016-Apr-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — H&M Foundation makes a second donation of USD 400,000 to Save the Children’s emergency work in Ethiopia, due to the current drought crisis. The support will result in food, water, sanitation and basic education to children.

Ethiopia is experiencing its worst drought in fifty years, threatening over 30 million people across the affected area. Despite early warning systems showing signals of a forthcoming disaster, the call for urgent global support is still not being acted upon quickly enough.

A total of USD 500,000 has now been donated by the H&M Foundation to emergency relief efforts in Ethiopia, and it is directed towards food and nutrition, clean water, sanitation and hygiene as well as basic education to children in the affected areas.

 

With this second donation we can provide rapid response and help more children and their families to handle the worst drought in 50 years in Ethiopia, says John Graham, Country Director Save the Children Ethiopia.

In December 2015, the H&M Foundation donated USD 100,000 to Save the Children which already has contributed to food aid to over 250,000 people, water, medicine and crucial support to families who have lost their incomes and treatment of over 4,000 cases of child malnutrition since the drought started.

An escalation of the drought expected to affect millions of people is predicted for the coming months. This, combined with the fact that the international response to the crisis remains insufficient made it an easy decision to make an additional donation, says I Global Manager at the H&M Foundation.
