// Inditex commits to global transformation strategy boost brand’s sustainability
// New strategy will cover areas such as design, manufacturing, logistics, stores & raw materials
// Plastic bags will be scrapped & containers for used clothes will be equipped in all stores from next year
Inditex has pledged to undertake a new strategy that will aim to drive sustainability in the company, covering areas such as design, manufacturing, logistics, stores and raw materials.
The Spanish clothing company that owns retailers such as Zara, Bershka, Pull & Bear and Stradivarius, said its stores will be eco-efficient from next year, as plastic bags will be scrapped and containers for used clothes will be equipped in all stores.
By 2025, 80 per cent of the energy utilised by Inditex will come from renewable sources, and 100 per cent of the cotton, linen and polyester fabrics will be organic, sustainable or recycled.
“We want to make Inditex a company that is fully sustainable in all aspects of the business,” Inditex group president Pablo Isla said at the group’s AGM.
Inditex will also arrange for a Sustainability Commission for the board of directors, to ensure these environmental and labour rights commitments are followed through.
