Awards Recognising our commitments

We want to do the right thing for our business and inspire and challenge others in our industry to embrace a sustainable vision. We don’t work on sustainability to win awards, but we’re always delighted when our efforts are recognised externally. 

In 2016:

  • We were recognised as the world’s largest purchaser of organic cotton for the fourth year by Textile Exchange.
  • We were ranked joint second, along with H&M, in a report commissioned by WWF, Solidaridad and Pesticide Action Network UK, that assessed 37 brands on their practices to source sustainable cotton.
  • We were ranked 28 out of 198 brands in the 3rd Annual Corporate Information Transparency Index 2016, an important recognition of our strengthened Sustainable Chemicals Management programme.
  • Over 40,000 German consumers rated us as the number one fashion retailer among 1,000 companies for our commitment to sustainability, in a ranking published by DEUTSCHLAND TEST and FOCUS-MONEY.
  • The Austrian Federal Ministry of Environment recognised C&A Europe with an Excellence in Climate Protection award.
  • The Brazilian American Chamber of Commerce honoured C&A Brazil with an Eco Award for our sustainable denim collection.
  • We were awarded the Best Starter Award by the Better Cotton Initiative for our strong start in sourcing BCI cotton.
