Swedish fashion brand Lindex is committed to improving its sustainability credentials and 2015 saw important steps taken towards achieving this goal. According to the company’s Sustainability Report for 2015, items made from sustainable fibres now account for 42% of its total production, and 27 million sustainable garments were sold during the year.

The Gothenburg-based company, part of Stockmann Group, said it improved its production processes significantly last year, using up to 45% less water and up to 27% less energy. As a result, almost all of Lindex denim is now produced with water, energy and chemical saving processes.

“To act sustainable is a key value at Lindex and it influences everything we do. I am very proud of the many great results that we have achieved so far. We work dedicatedly towards our target that 80% of our garments will be made from sustainable sources by 2020 and we have already achieved 42% by 2015,” says Ingvar Larsson, Lindex CEO.

Among other initiatives, the brand’s 11th sustainability report revealed that the company donated 1.3 million euros to cancer research through sales activities.

The leading European brand trades from over 480 stores in the Nordic countries, the Baltic States, Central Europe and the Middle East. It offers inspiring and affordable fashion to fashion conscious women.
