C &A Foundation is a corporate foundation here to transform the fashion industry. They work with change-makers all over the world, giving them financial support, expertise and networks so they themselves can make the fashion industry work better for every person it touches.
The foundation collaborates with a variety of stakeholders, including NGOs and industry partners, and works closely with smallholder farmers and garment workers. Currently, they are concentrating their current efforts in five key areas: accelerating sustainable cotton, improving working conditions for garment workers, eliminating forced and child labour from the apparel supply chain, fostering a transition to circular fashion, and the strengthening communities where they work.
In every programme a specific emphasis is placed on the issues facing women and girls as they are disproportionately affected by the challenges of the apparel industry. C&A Foundation is driven by the belief that despite the vast and complex challenges, collaborative action can make fashion a force for good.
