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.

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.”
