During our first years, the H&M Foundation managed to achieve remarkably ambitious goals, reaching hundreds of thousands across the world with quality education, economic empowerment, clean water and sanitation while successfully pushing these issues to the global agenda.
The long-term vision for the H&M Foundation is to contribute to reaching the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, that were set by the United Nations in 2015. The H&M Foundation works with experienced partners within the focus areas and our strategy is based on three guiding principles:
- Innovation — we approach challenges in new ways.
- Involvement — we involve people in making a difference.
- Impact— we seek to achieve real change.
The Annual Report 2017 covers the work of the H&M Foundation from January 1 2017 to December 31 2017.
