We at Lindex place great importance on sustainability in every stage of our process – from initial design to recycling when the clothing is no longer wearable.
We provide affordable fashion, while considering the impact we have on our environment, using the earth’s resources wisely, and treating our employees and factory workers respectfully and responsibly. We strive to be recognised as one of the most sustainable, open, and trusted companies in the industry. We seek to drive change, to make a real difference.
In order to treat the planet in a sustainable manner, every decision matters. From working with our suppliers on water related projects promoting responsible use and treatment, to include;
- timers on store lighting to decrease the use of power;
- offering customers the opportunity to recycle Lindex clothing and textiles in the aim of closing the loop;
- demanding that shipping companies use Clean Shipping methods;
- reducing employee travel, using new techniques to hold meetings;
- increasing the use of organic and Better Cotton Initiative materials in our fabrics;
- delivering inventory in space-efficient reusable boxes;
- bearing sustainability in mind when designing new stores;
- recycling waste at stores, warehouses, and offices;
- providing customers with sustainable garment care instructions;
- powering our warehouse with solar panels;
- minimising waste by maximising the number of garments cut out of each piece of fabric;
We at Lindex dedicate ourselves to sustainability in everything we do, and in one of our leading and most well-founded sustainability commitments, we work along with our customers to contribute in the fight against breast cancer. Through various design collaborations and activities, both Lindex employees and customers can help.
Other community-based projects include:
- our involvement in the HER project to improve women’s health in Asia;
- our support of schools in Bangladesh that educate underprivileged children;
- and our collaboration with WaterAid, which extends access to safe drinking water and improving hygiene and sanitation in the poorest communities.
As designers, suppliers, manufacturers, and consumers, together we can make a sustainable difference in the fashion industry.
