About the Company

C&A Foundation (candafoundation.org) is a corporate foundation here to transform the fashion industry. Affiliated with international clothing retailer, C&A, it works with change-makers all over the world, giving them financial support, expertise and networks so they can make the fashion industry work better for every person it touches. The foundation collaborates with a variety of stakeholders, including NGOs and industry partners, and works closely with smallholder farmers and garment workers. C&A Foundation does this because of the deeply rooted belief that despite the vast and complex challenges, we can work together to make fashion a force for good. In everything the foundation does, a special emphasis is placed on women and girls, as they are disproportionately affected by the issues affecting the industry. Currently, C&A Foundation concentrates on five key areas of work: accelerating sustainable cotton, improving working conditions, eliminating forced and child labour, fostering a transition to circular fashion, and strengthening communities.
