38 per cent sustainability labelled fashion at KappAhl

In one year, KappAhl has increased the proportion of sustainability labelled fashion range with sixty per cent, from 24 to 38 percent.
     “Our ambitious sustainability work have produced results,” says CEO Danny Feltmann, who also emphasizes that the work untiringly goes on.
      “The goal is for our share of sustainable fashion to continue increasing every year.”

More sustainable garments in the customers' closets - it's a priority for KappAhl, who now has taken a big step on the way there. 38 percent of the range as of today is sustainability labelled, compared with a year ago when the number was 24 percent.
     “This is the only possible way forward to create a sustainable business,” says KappAhl's CEO Danny Feltmann and continues:
     “Sustainability and profitability are two sides of the same coin for us.”

In 2020, all cotton in KappAhl's range is to be sustainable. Already today all cotton in for example KappAhl's men's shirts and children's collection Kaxs, is sustainable. Also, the whole baby collection Newbie is made of sustainable materials.

KappAhl's ambitious sustainability work is gathered under the concept "Future Friendly Fashion", where work is carried out in everything from materials, water consumption, and reduced use of chemicals to clothes care and textile collecting - to name some.
