Spanish fashion brand Mango has joined the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) initiative to measure the environmental and social impact of brands and improve practices in supply chains.
It joins more than 250 companies and organisations in 35 countries in the international alliance which aims to promote sustainable production within the textile, footwear and clothing industry.
"In Mango we believe that the textile industry needs to transform to become sustainable and, therefore, we are working to promote social and environmental improvements that will lead us towards that sustainability," says Beatriz Bayo, director of Mango's CSR.
SAC is best known for the Higg Index, a suite of supply chain tools which measures the social or environmental performance of a company or product, which it launched in 2011.
At the end of 2019, Mango joined the Fashion Pact, a global coalition consisting of 56 companies and 250 brands that aims to boost the environmental sustainability of the textile and fashion sectors. It is also a member of the Better Cotton Initiative programme.
It recently announced plans to ensure that by 2025 100 per cent of the cotton it uses will be sustainably grown and that 50 per cent of its polyester will be recycled.
Mango, founded in 1984, has an international presence in more than 100 countries. It had global sales of 2.2 million euros (2.4 million dollars) in 2018.
