Lindex contributes to increased health among female textile workers

10 per cent of Lindex sales during International Women’s Day, March 8, will be donated to HERhealth which aims to improve health and lives of female textile workers.

The majority of Lindex customers and employees are women, as well as those who make the clothes. For Lindex, women are essential and among other things Lindex work to improve the lives of female textile workers, for example through the HERhealth initiative, which contributes to increased knowledge about health and access to health care.

The woman is very important to us at Lindex and we work in many ways to empower and inspire women through our business. We do that not only with our fashion, but also through different engagements. Respect and equal opportunities are pre-conditions for a more equal society. I´m proud that Lindex, together with our customers, will highlight International Women’s Day and HERhealth this way, says Lindex Corporate Sustainability Manager Anna-Karin Dahlberg.

Lindex will donate 10 per cent of the total sales from International Women’s Day, March 8, and the donation will be used to start more HERhealth projects in Lindex suppliers’ factories. In 2017 the corresponding donation was 114 000 euro which so far has enabled nine new HERhealth projects and included about 8 500 women in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China and Myanmar.
