A living wage is one that covers the cost of living of workers and their dependent family members and provides adequate reserves for emergency situations. Because individual actors have little impact on this issue, the Textile Partnership has launched a Partnership Initiative on livelihood wages. Here, members actively contribute to effective solutions to the wage question.
Roundabout instead of one-way street: The Cradle to Cradle approach. C&A wants to make this approach the norm along its entire value chain. In order to realize this claim, C&A has entered into a partnership with the Fashion for Good initiative, which was founded by the C&A Foundation. In addition, C&A was the first textile retailer worldwide to launch T-shirts and jeans on the market with the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Gold certification.
