Our commitment to Sustainability:
Wear the change

Wear the change


The C&A brand operates globally in 21 countries, with more than 42,000 employees and 772,000 apparel workers in the supply chain. Since our 1841 founding by Clemens and August Brenninkmeijer in Sneek, Holland, C&A has been defining the way people choose and buy their clothes. Still family-owned after six generations, our values are deeply rooted. What we do – and the way we do it – has a significant impact on society and the environment. That’s why we move to unite with our customers and other stakeholders to create positive impact. We are working to integrate sustainability into everything we do. This means helping our customers make more sustainable choices, improving the wellbeing of supply chain workers and those in our own business, and helping communities build resilience in the face of challenges. Achieving this while operating in an open and transparent way — and in collaboration with partners — will contribute to lasting, positive change.

CSR Profile

At C&A, we believe everyone should be able to look and feel good every day, while supporting a good quality of life for those who make our clothes and a healthy planet. We want our customers to trust us to do the right thing, so they can buy our products without having to choose between what’s sustainable and what’s not. To achieve our vision of fashion with a positive impact, our sustainability work is focused on the areas that are most relevant to our business and where we can have the biggest impact - our products, our supply chain, and people’s lives.
