Like all H&M’s activities, our CSR work is based on a drive for continuous improvement.
We apply the precautionary principle in our environmental work and have adopted a preventative approach with the substitution of hazardous chemicals. We strive to use resources as efficiently as possible and to minimize waste. By adopting new technologies and methods, we can work preventatively to minimise our environmental footprint through improved production processes and our choice of materials. We must continuously review the company’s goals and strategies to reduce the company’s climate impact.
Our decisions are based on careful consideration, where shorter or longer-term environmental benefits are weighed up in order to ensure that we choose solutions that are sustainable in the long term. We want to be a good global citizen and act responsibly in our business relations. We take a clear stand against all forms of corruption. We engage in dialogue with all our various stakeholders to build trust in our operations within the environment we rely on for our long-term success.
