We are so incredibly proud of our employees who have done a fantastic job with involving our customers and creating commitment around this year's Pink Ribbon campaign. Once again, we have had the possibility to donate a record amount to cancer research, a proof that we have a greater impact together.
It is very gratifying that we, during the second quarter, managed to strongly increase our sales compared with both previous year and 2019, despite the challenges with continued periodically closed stores in the majority of our sales markets. We deliver a greatly improved result for both the second quarter and the first half of the year, which reflects Lindex's successful development and growth, where our fantastic assortment and all committed employees' great customer focus and efforts have been central
Ocean transport accounts for a significant part of the global CO2 emissions and for us at Lindex, it is important to do what we can to have a positive impact. Switching to biofuels for all our ocean freight, was therefore a natural step for us and in our work to achieve our climate goal – to reduce the CO2 emissions throughout our value chain by 50 percent by 2030. We are one of the first players to take this step and hope to inspire others to do the same, so that we together can reduce the total climate impact from the world's ocean transport
The woman is everything to us as Lindex and her needs are the core of everything we do. The fact that something as natural as menstruation still is an obstacle for so many girls and women today, is not acceptable. By highlighting Menstrual Hygiene Day and talking about menstruation, we hope to be part of having an impact on the existing taboos. We want all girls and women to feel confident every day of the month, and such a simple product as a menstrual cup gives you the freedom to do what you want when you want
Despite a tough start to 2021, with continued challenges for our physical stores with periodically closures in the majority of our sales markets, restrictions and reduced traffic, Lindex improves its adjusted operating result for the first quarter compared to both 2019 and 2020. The positive development shows that our actions and efforts have had a successful effect and where all employees’ great flexibility, contribution and commitment have been key
We want all women throughout our value chain to be able to fulfill their full potential. Creating inclusive and equal workplaces is a prerequisite and that is why we run the program 'We women by Lindex' in our supply chain. Through dedicated work together with our suppliers, we have achieved great results, but this is just the beginning of our journey and there is still a lot to do. To scale up and reach even more women, we therefore invite more key players in the fashion industry to take part in the We women program, so that we together can pursue the issue of equal opportunities.
It has undeniably been a turbulent time, defined by the global corona situation with restrictions, reduced store traffic and periodically closed stores in the majority of our sales markets. We have really been challenged but also learned and achieved a lot. I am proud of how quickly we have managed to adapt to meet our strong digital growth and how we with the right priorities, effective actions and fantastic contribution from all committed employees parried the situation together. We report a full year result for 2020 that is almost on par with the previous year's very strong result
Women’s breasts have always been subject to various symbolic metaphors – grapefruits, lemons, mountain peaks and much more. We think it’s time to take back and change the way we look at these. With warmth and a sense of humour, we want to show how every woman owns her metaphor and its meaning. We simply want to encourage everyone to be themselves and love their breasts just the way they are, regardless of size or shape
With comfort, simplicity and wellbeing in mind, we want to offer pieces for every woman’s own kind of active. Our long history as lingerie experts has given us a deep understanding of the female body. For this spring’s activewear, we have designed soft pieces that move naturally with your body
Thanks to the fantastic commitment of our employees and customers, we show once again that when we unite our efforts we can make a difference. It feels important that we together can contribute to cancer research so more people can survive and less people are affected by cancer.
With clear goals, effective cost saving actions and flexible solutions to meet the strong digital growth, we have together succeeded to turning the trend around successfully. We can report a greatly improved result for the third quarter and we even increased our result for the first nine months of the year. Thanks to our online growth, the total sales during the quarter are almost on par with the same period last year, which is proof of our quick adjustment to meet the customer needs. Our offering, together with our implemented actions and the dedicated efforts of all our employees during the continuing challenging period, have been decisive factors for our positive development
During spring and summer, we have really shown that we can challenge ourselves. We have succeeded in adjusting quickly to meet the customer’s expectations and we have both learned and achieved a lot in a short time. To secure our continued business and a resilient Lindex, also for future challenges, we are now implementing additional actions and reducing our costs
