H&M doesn’t own any factories, instead we work with around 900 independent suppliers – who are close, long-term partners. In the other words, Our products are sourced from independent suppliers, mainly in Europe and Asia. These suppliers manufacture our products and generally source fabrics and other components needed. We work closely with long-term partners and invest significant resources in our sustainability work in the supply chain.
We have a team of around 80 people who audit working conditions at supplier factories against our Code of Conduct. The production offices also perform extensive safety and quality testing as well as ensuring chemical requirements are met. So customers must feel confident that everything they buy at H&M is designed, produced and distributed with the greatest consideration for people and the environment.
