C&A has been one of the great pioneering fashion distribution groups in the development of a sustainability strategy .
Sustainability is also one of the pillars of the rebranding that the chain carried out last year, when it adopted a new logo and the Wear the Change claim .
The company, which already uses 50% sustainable materials, is one of the largest consumers of organic cotton in the world. The group has almost 1,400 stores in 18 countries and some 31,000 employees and is owned by Cofra Holding.
The big benchmark for relocation has so far been Adidas, which started up two fully automated factories in Ansbach (Germany) and Atlanta (United States), although both closed in 2020 .
