Many of the countries C&A sources from are disproportionately affected by environmental or social issues, ranging from poverty and extreme gender inequality to extreme weather and disease. All of these issues adversely affect the communities we source from and those where C&A employees live.

All of these issues adversely affect the communities we source from and those where C&A employees live.
To truly strengthen the most vulnerable communities, we have to get to the root cause of these complex challenges. We work in partnership with C&A Foundation to address these challenges and try to bring people on the journey with us. We run volunteer programmes that support local charities, seek to change perceptions and drive societal change. We are also partnering with Save the Children and C&A Foundation to help communities become more resilient and respond to disasters.
“Through Inspiring Women 2017 and the visit to SOS Children’s Village, I got the power and passion of love and life. It helped me and my colleagues find the opportunity to express our deep gratitude to our mothers and help other people in need.”

Helping children and families across the world
Over the past three years, C&A Foundation has provided partnership funding of over €10 million to Save the Children. In addition, C&A Europe and C&A Mexico raised a total of €870,800 for Save the Children between March 2017 and February 2018, through cause marketing campaigns, emergency appeals and other initiatives.
Through our Disaster Risk Reduction programme with C&A Foundation and Save the Children, we're helping communities become more resilient to daily risks and prepare for larger disasters. Between January 2017 and April 2018, our customers donated over €408,000 to help refugees across Europe.
Between March 2017 and February 2018, C&A Foundation provided funding of €2.9 million to 142 initiatives in 18 European countries. The recipients were chosen by our employees via our C&A Together community giving programme.
We are a company made up of four different regions. Our localised approach empowers each region to act in ways and on issues that matter most to them. This means our employees are involved with product campaigns and programmes that are pertinent in their local market and important to them as individuals, driving deeper engagement.
