Nov 1, 2013 7:30 AM ET

Thursday, 31 October 2013, Greenpeace published an assessment of the companies committed to Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals 2020. H&M is appointed in the leaders group for  the positive progress H&M has achieved so far regarding elimination of all hazardous chemical use across the global supply-chain by no later than 1 January 2020.

Please see below for Greenpeace statement:

H&M is matching its commitment with fashion-forward action.

H&M proved that its commitment wasn’t just a fast-fashion fad, agreeing to phase out 11 priority groups of hazardous chemicals and already making progress in this critical direction. The company has shown itself to be a true believer in the ‘right-to-know’ principle, laying out ambitious plans to disclose toxic discharge data from all of its strategic suppliers on the global Institute for Environmental Affairs platform (1).

To keep on trend, we encourage this Detox champion to implement the best current technology available in order to reveal the presence of hazardous chemicals and continue on its current path towards achieving zero discharges by 1st January 2020.
