March 25, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


H&M announced Monday the company will stop placing orders on conventional cashmere by the end of next year as part of its overarching sustainability efforts, according to a company blog post. Instead, the retailer will "work for a more transparent supply chain" where cashmere can be sourced from places that meet its environmental and animal welfare standards, per the announcement.
