Mexico 

We operate 72 stores in 40 cities across Mexico. We’re working to expand the sourcing of more sustainable cotton, improve supplier performance, reduce our environmental impacts and engage and inspire employees and customers on sustainability issues.

  • Historically, there has been a relatively low uptake of Better Cotton within the supply chain in Mexico. But in just over a year of active engagement and procurement, Better Cotton now accounts for a significant proportion of the cotton we source in Mexico. To get there, C&A Mexico mapped its supply chain, developed a 2020 sourcing roadmap, and delivered BCI training to employees, suppliers and mills.

Sustainable Supply

  • Over 60% of C&A Mexico’s suppliers are based in Mexico, and we share the others with C&A Europe. In 2017, we worked with 160 domestic production units to implement the global Sustainable Supply Chain programme guidelines and audit process, in line with C&A’s global Supplier Code of Conduct.

  • Because our new requirements are unique for the supply chain in Mexico, 37% of the workers in our supply chain work in D- and E-rated factories. We are working closely with each supplier and factory to build their capacity and improve ratings over time to meet our Supplier Code of Conduct requirements.
