For generations, C&A has successfully led the way in offering more affordable clothes in the latest styles and fashion. In particular this is done by discovering and meeting the true needs of every customer and by developing more sustainable business practices. Tradition is best when constantly renewed, and today C&A devotes its passion for knowledge and results to carefully and creatively planting the seeds of tomorrow. By putting people and planet first, we are leading the fashion industry forward into the future.
Our vision: Making Sustainable Fashion the New Normal
C&A has been in business for 176 years, always aiming to make desirable, affordable clothing widely available. We believe everyone should be able to look and feel good every day, without compromising the lives of those who make their clothes, or the planet we source from. And that’s why we invest heavily in sustainability. It’s part of who we are. We have over 2 million customers per day, nearly 60,000 employees and over 1 million of our suppliers' workers produce our clothing. We understand the importance of our influence and the responsibility we have to use it positively. Take the time to learn more about our sustainability vision, initiatives and commitments.
We at C&A continue to adapt and apply our historical values to our work in a globalized world. Our values form a living context for every one of our employees in all of their professional activities. They define how we do business. They guide how we work together with our business partners and they remind us how to treat everyone – from customers and colleagues, manufacturers and suppliers, to our planet and its people. These 5 core values define who we are, what we do and when linked with the Leadership Behaviors specifically map out how to make the execution of these values achievable. – less
