Since 1976, C&A Brazil has played a leading role in the Brazilian retail market, including on sustainability issues. We operate 278 stores, 3 distribution centres, and a head office in more than 120 cities across the country. We’ve reported on sustainability since 2010 and were the first fashion retailer in the country to report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines. We were also the first company in Brazil to have an eco-store with LEED certification for sustainable buildings, and the first to disclose its supplier list. We have been monitoring our supply chain since 2006 and contributed to the creation of the ABVTEX (Brazilian Association of Textile Retailers) Qualification Programme for Retail Suppliers, which aims to ensure suitable labour conditions for workers employed by suppliers and their subcontractors.
