WE Women by Lindex

The majority of the textile workers who make our clothes are women and we are committed to improving their lives. During 2017 we launched WE Women by Lindex – a project where we take action for gender equality in the supply chain and work to create more equal and inclusive workplaces.

WE Women by Lindex is part of our ambition to improve the lives of women in our global supply chain. In this project, we integrate gender equality into supplier management systems to change the leadership and management style in factories so they can become more inclusive for women and aware of gender equality issues.

The supplier’s work for gender equality will be evaluated and included in our sustainability score card. Our sustainability score card is used to assess our suppliers and enhance the business incentive for sustainability.

WE Women by Lindex is a three-year project developed through a partnership between Lindex and GIZ, and in cooperation with BSR and local non-governmental organisations. The project starts with 33 of our suppliers in Bangladesh. The project also includes 10 non-Lindex suppliers in order to promote the concept to the industry in Bangladesh. The suppliers included in the project employ around 82 000 workers, of which more than 50 per cent are women. The ambition is to scale the project to cover our entire supply chain in the future.

About BSR: BSR is a global non-profit organisation that develops sustainable business strategies and solutions through consulting, research, and cross-sector collaboration. BSR is the founder of HERproject, a collaborative initiative that strives to empower low-income women working in global supply chains.
