July 2012 - Future Shaper C&A
One of our customers, C&A, have been selected as one of Textile Exchange's 'Future Shapers', one of ten companies that have driven the industry to appreciate the value of organic cotton and other more sustainable initiatives.
Textile Exchange writes that C&A has been a pioneer in investing all the way through the supply chain in a holistic way, in order to support both farmers producing organic cotton and farmers producing conventional cotton to move towards more sustainable production.
Philip Chamberlain, Head of Sustainable Business
Development at C&A said:
"Since 2004, we have decided to take a holistic approach to our cotton supply chain and we are proud to be able to demonstrate that our investments are beneficial for both farmers on the ground, and for our company, which in turn makes the business case even stronger."
