 Program Ensures Elevated Level of Cleaning Standards and Operational Best Practices

at Best Western-Branded Hotels

Best Western Hotels & Resorts (BWHR) was the first hotel brand to set a high level of cleanliness with the roll out the I Care Clean program in 2012. The program was developed through a partnership with innovation and design firm, IDEO, and required its hotels to focus on guest high touch items and areas with standards such as usage of ultraviolet sterilization wands and TV remotes that can be disinfected. At the onslaught of the global COVID-19 pandemic, BWHR immediately rolled out enhanced cleaning protocols and breakfast standards. Recognizing that travelers are now more concerned than ever about cleanliness, BWHR is launching the We Care CleanSM program, which ensures an even higher level of cleaning standards and operational best practices at its properties. Based upon guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Health Canada, We Care Clean addresses everything from guest room and common area cleanliness, to streamlined processes that minimize contact between guests and associates while maintaining industry-leading customer service. The program will be updated regularly based upon the latest standards and recommendations by governmental agencies and industry groups.

“The We Care Clean program is the latest example of our commitment to our guests and associates,” said David Kong, President and Chief Executive Officer for BWHR. “We have always been an industry leader in our reputation for providing clean, well-maintained accommodations for travelers and we recognize that hygiene and cleanliness have never been more important. With the We Care Clean program, we are proud to provide a safe and clean home away from home for our guests when the time comes to travel again.”

The We Care Clean program expands upon the I Care Clean standards and the enhanced cleaning protocol already in place, and includes the implementation of measures to improve safety – such as the installation of social distancing floor decals and front desk partitions – as well as the enforcement of heightened and comprehensive cleanliness standards on an ongoing basis across five key areas:

Front Desk and Lobby:

New protocols will minimize guest contact with personnel through a streamlined check-in and check-out process such as the use of Best Western’s Mobile Concierge platform.

Social distancing measures will be implemented, wellness best practices signs will be prominently posted, and all lobby brochures, magazines and papers will be removed.

Enhanced sanitization procedures will be in place at the front desk, in the lobby and across guest touch points throughout the hotel with disinfecting taking place regularly.

Sanitizing stations or wipes will be available throughout hotels.

Guest Room and Housekeeping:

Unnecessary items will be removed from guest rooms, such as decorative pillows, bed scarves, paper notepads and pens.

Housekeeping offerings will be modified for stay-over guests, including the elimination of a full cleaning service unless specifically requested by guests.

Enhanced and thorough cleaning protocols will be implemented in guest rooms. Guest rooms will not be entered for 24 to 72 hours after check-out, at which time the room, linens and all touch points, for example, faucets, door handles, light switches, thermostats, clocks and hangers will be cleaned with chemicals aimed at killing COVID-19.

Temporary Breakfast Offerings: While recognizing the importance of a quality breakfast, offerings have been adapted to prioritize the health and safety of guests, including:

Breakfast offerings that comply with local regulations, with breakfast rooms closed where required to avoid unnecessary guest congregation.

Enhanced ‘Grab & Go’ offerings will be implemented in most hotels providing guests with pre-packaged food and beverage options.

Hotels may opt to provide a “served” or pre-plated breakfast to minimize guest contact with food, beverages and surfaces, and cross contamination.

Public Amenities:

When allowed to open, public amenities such as fitness centers, swimming pools and meeting rooms will be cleaned on closely monitored schedules with disinfecting chemicals. Each evening, these areas may also be sanitized with the use of electrostatic fogging, ozone generators or ultraviolet devices.

Hand sanitizer or wipes will be provided for guests and employees in all public areas.

Hotel Employees and Staff Requirements:

Hotel employees will follow strict guidelines, including utilizing Personal Protective Equipment, frequent and stringent hand-washing protocols, and housekeepers/laundry staff will wear both gloves and a mask.

Employee workstations will be cleaned and disinfected after every shift.

Employees will be empowered to stay home if unwell, communicate their potential exposure to COVID-19 with management, and will be fully educated on how to maintain a safe and clean home.

“We Care Clean elevates our existing cleaning practices and protocols to a new level,” adds Ron Pohl, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer for BWHR. “Protecting guests and employees is our highest priority and today that is most often achieved through a tremendous focus on cleaning practices. Travelers can rest easy knowing that We Care Clean is the new standard for hotel cleanliness. We are putting the safety and wellbeing of guests and employees first.”

This announcement is the latest example of BWHR’s commitment to supporting its hoteliers, guests and communities during the COVID-19 health crisis. BWHR was the first hotel company to offer a relief package to its hoteliers to help ease the financial burden during this challenging time. BWHR was also the first in the industry to extend loyalty status to its BWR members whose travel plans have been greatly impacted by travel restrictions and cancellations resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Just this month, BWHR also launched a support package to lend a helping hand to front line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

AVEDA The Revolution of Reinvention Collection

The Revolution of Reinvention Collection

Presented by: Antoinette Beenders,

Aveda’s Senior Vice President – Professional Global Artistry

Inspired by the Aveda Mission, the spirit that I have tried to capture in the images for the new Aveda SS20 creative collection is a combination of punk, teddy girl, and 1950s French New Look. I was inspired by these eras of political activism, protest and female empowerment.

I have always believed that hair is the fashion of the body and the idea was to take classic techniques and market finds and to blend them with pieces from the newest catwalk collections in order to show that something old can look just as fresh and relevant as something new, and how both can be combined seamlessly to create a modern, contemporary and entirely relevant new hybrid look. All of the hair featured in this collection is either recycled or re-used, from techniques to actual hairpieces.

The message is one of valuing those items that already exist and using them as building blocks to create something brand new. Additionally, all of the fabrics featured in the shoot are naturally occurring.

The World is currently in the midst of a new “Youthquake,” where young people are rallying their forces and taking over the political mantle of the day. Uppermost on their agenda is the protection of our planet and the desire to bring an end to the senseless destruction that we as a race have been causing it in recent decades. Climate change and global warming, the plastic waste that is polluting our oceans and the giant landfills that are endangering our natural habitats are all central topics in this new dialogue which has redefined the conversations amongst our youth. The need to curb what many now view as completely unnecessary and unacceptable levels of consumption and in turn to limit the wanton waste that has come to define how life has been lived by most of us, at least until recently, is now being heralded as the most important political topic of the day.

This new political agenda is also reflected in the style decisions that young people are making and how they express themselves through the clothes they wear, the hairstyles they go for and the beauty and grooming decisions that they make. Uppermost is the desire to be seen as both responsible and conscious when it comes to matters of consumption and the waste that this potentially results in.

A recent cover of British Vogue features pop icon Taylor Swift wearing a vintage Chanel jacket. The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, explains that his decision to feature vintage on the cover was motivated by the increased focus on conscious fashion and social responsibility that readers are looking to find in the publications they choose to read. This sentiment is echoed by American Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour who is passionate about addressing the throwaway couture that has come to define fashion the world over. The message they are both looking to communicate is one of ‘buy less, buy better and buy to last’.


Products used to achieve these looks included Nutriplenish™ Leave-In Conditioner for easy detangling and smooth, shiny hair; Phomollient™ Styling Foam, made using air-infused technology that transforms a liquid into a foam without hydrocarbon propellants, Brilliant™ Universal Styling Crème to create curls in baby hairs and Control Force™ Firm Hold Hair Spray for an extra strong hold

Ultima Collection, the luxury operator with hotels, residences, and spas across the most sought-after destinations in Europe, will expand their portfolio with the addition of a new property, Ultima Corfu, scheduled to open on 1 June 2020. Perched on a dramatic hillside looking out over the Ionian Sea, Ultima Corfu will constitute the brand’s first beachside residence, and will be a serene retreat, affording guests an opportunity to escape, switch off, and reground themselves in a Greek paradise, far from the cares and worries of their everyday lives.

A heaven of tranquillity located on the shores of the Ionian Sea, Ultima Corfu will take the form of an elegantly appointed private villa available for single-group bookings, and ideal for families or groups of friends. Spread over 1,000 square metres, the property will seamlessly blend the outdoor landscape with the indoors, and will boast uninterrupted views of the rugged coastline and crystal-clear waters of the deep blue sea.

As guests enter the sublime property, they will be greeted by a spacious living area, decorated in a monochrome colour palette with minimalist yet signature Ultima Collection design – allowing the unspoilt views to take centre stage, visible through the floor to ceiling windows that frame the property. The two 20m sea-facing infinity pools will be the crowning feature of the expansive wraparound terrace. Situated on separate tiers of the terrace, yet located just steps away from each other, the pools offer guests the chance to either socialise together or enjoy the peace and quiet. The villa will also include two outdoor lounges and an al fresco dining area, perfect for enjoying sundowners and Mediterranean feasts with the striking view of the Ionian sunset as a backdrop.

Set over two levels, allowing for multiple perspectives of the view, Ultima Corfu will sleep 14 guests in seven bedrooms, including one master bedroom with private terrace. All bedrooms will feature en-suite bathrooms and dressing-rooms. Remarkable ornate Grecian features and materials will adorn the magnificent white interiors, subtly decorated with a typically Mediterranean colour palette. Fitness enthusiasts who want to maintain their training regime whilst on holiday, will have access to a fully equipped fitness studio and an ‘on-demand’ personal trainer. In keeping with Ultima’s wellness offering, the villa will also include an impressive Hammam for holistic heated therapies, a Jacuzzi, as well as the Ultima Spa massage and treatment amenities.

The highlight amenity of Ultima Corfu will be unrestricted access to the villa’s 24m yacht Ultima Beach, available for guests to charter at their desire throughout their stay. Unquestionably the most indulgent and unparalleled way to discover the azure waters and unspoilt wilderness of the Corfu coastline, Ultima Corfu’s yacht will be manned by one captain and one steward, and will have space for 12 guests at one time for day trips, and for seven guests for overnight trips in one twin, one pullman and two double master cabins. The yacht comes fully equipped with Ultima standard mod cons, air-conditioning, and sea ‘toys’ including snorkelling equipment and a Zodiac Tender 3.80. With gourmet cuisine served onboard, Ultima Beach offers an immersive excursion, indulging guests’ every desire. Romantic sunset cruises, exciting and adventurous day trips, or lazy sun-soaked days await guests, all in all making for a truly unforgettable experience.

During their stay, guests of Ultima Corfu will be able to explore the picturesque seaside villages of this ancient Greek island, hidden islets and wild natural landscapes. The villa’s personal concierge will be on hand throughout the stay, and can arrange private excursions to some of the island’s most beautiful spots. Whether guests want to take in Corfu’s imposing palaces and charming squares, or simply want to while away their days visiting sandy coves and bathing in the pristine waters, a curated catalogue of guest experiences will be available to cater to all tastes.

Included as part of the villa will be the supreme Ultima services with daily full luxury breakfast, daily afternoon tea, 24-hour concierge, housekeeping, service staff, laundry, and round-trip airport transfers. Rental of the Ultima Beach yacht, along with all staff fees, will be included. Fuel and port fees will be charged as incurred.

The launch of Ultima Corfu will bring to six the total number of properties within the Ultima Collection, which currently includes luxury ski hotels and residences in the majestic Alps and the new urban retreat on the shores of Lake Geneva. It will further establish Ultima Collection as one of the world’s leading and most visionary luxury hospitality groups.

Cartier Gifts for Mothers

Additionally, any order placed on Cartier e-boutique cartier.hk from May 1st to 10th will be entitled to a series of exceptional privileges, offering the best and remarkable gift to your beloved mom.

LOVE Jewellery Collection

The iconic LOVE bracelet was conceived in 1969 in the Cartier New York workshops by designer Aldo Cipullo. Its classic design soon became a universal symbol of romance. The locking mechanism reinforces the idea that love is an unshakeable bond. The unique charm and everlasting quality of this piece make it the ultimate choice as a token of love and promises. Surprise your mom with this precious selection in the season of appreciation, adding a touch of elegance to her look on Mother’s Day.

Panthère de Cartier Jewellery Collection

The panther, one of Cartier’s most recognisable motifs, first leaped into the world of Cartier jewellery in 1914. Whilst Louis Cartier was the first to tame the legendary creature, his associate Jeanne Toussaint went on to make magnificent use of the now-iconic feline motif. Since then, the panther, by turns predatory, playful or languid, has revealed different facets of its wild personality from collection to collection. Delight your beloved mom with Panthère jewellery of enduring beauty and timeless elegance in this special month!

Maillon de Cartier Watch Collection

Maillon de Cartier watch collection is the first and foremost a statement of style. The chain-link bracelet remains a composed centerpiece, one that plays on classic codes, whilst reinventing today’s attitudes. It all lies in the twist of the lines, in the torsion emphasising the perspective within which the watch dial blends. This interpretation allows the case and links to entwine themselves in one graphic motion. Gift the Maillon de Cartier watch to your mom who always makes time for you.

Ballon Bleu de Cartier Watch Collection

Present to the special lady something truly timeless this Mother’s Day. The Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch complements nearly every look and reflects one’s luxe taste. A gift that will last forever, the sophisticatedly feminine jewellery watch for daytime or evening wear may be worn alone or accessorised, exuding an air of elegance.

Guirlande de Cartier Bag Collection

The Guirlande de Cartier bag is a one-of-a-kind accessory, for stepping out in unflappable poise and taking ownership of the fearless redirection of a legend by a great Maison with the perfect dash of wit and deviation. The nano model, the mini model or the clutch version, are all ideal gifts to add classy elements to everyday look of all moms.




The Redress Design Award announces the semi-finalists in its 10th anniversary cycle, hand-selected from entries from across the globe by expert regional judges. The 32 talented designers – separated, for the first time into menswear and womenswear categories – represent the future of the fashion industry, ready to apply their skills to solving the fashion crisis and shifting the $2.4 billion(1) industry towards a circular economy. The Redress Design Award provides emerging designers with a platform to demonstrate solutions to tackle the fashion crisis with a focus on textile waste. Public voting has opened for the People’s Choice award with one out of the 32 rising sustainable designers to  be presented with this accolade.

Christina Dean, Redress Founder and Board Chair, says, “Fashion needs to wake up, reinvent itself and get with the times. COVID-19 has shattered the fashion system, from broken supply chains to near flat-lining of consumption, and we are now forced to reevaluate our consumption desires, which will shake up the fashion of tomorrow. Fashion’s global waste crisis, and its effect on climate impact, will live on way beyond this COVID-19 crisis and so it is vital that emerging designers continue fighting for a better fashion world.”

The 10th Redress Design Award received applicants from 49 regions, with selected semi-finalists from new regions including Peru, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Albania. Hong Kong, Mainland China, India, and the United Kingdom are also prominently represented. A heightened understanding of sustainability issues and sustainable design techniques was showcased by the emerging designers, underpinning Redress’ educational mission to educate the future of the fashion industry around circular design strategies.

Next, the 32 semi-finalists will face the international judging panel for a chance to win a spot among the 10 finalists and be brought on an all-expenses-paid educational trip to Hong Kong. There, the finalists will undergo a series of educational challenges and experiences to develop their skills as sustainable designers and, finally, showcase their Redress Design Award collection live to a career-changing audience of prominent industry experts, VIPs, and media at the Grand Final Show, where the 2020 winner will be announced.

Competition judge, Kevin Bailey, Executive Vice President and Group President, VF Corporation, Asia-Pacific, says, “I am honoured to join the Redress Design Award as a judge for its 10th cycle. Circular business is still in its infancy across the industry, but by daring to reimagine and reinvent ourselves, and see our responsibility to leverage our scale for good, VF aims to inspire designers as together we champion the move toward a circular economy. Our hope is this Award equips emerging designers with the skills and knowledge needed to turn the fashion industry on its head, leading us towards a more sustainable future.”

This year’s semi-finalists will receive promotion across all Redress global-reaching marketing channels, plus a selection of fashion books from Bloomsbury Publishing to support their development in designing for circularity. They will also join the now 218-strong Redress Design Award Alumni Network, which provides support to designers as they  develop their sustainable fashion careers.

The coveted People’s Choice award is now open for public voting until 7 May 2020. After impressing the global public to outshine their 31 semi-finalist competitors, the People’s Choice winner will take home a state-of-the-art JUKI overlock sewing machine, and a copy of the Bloomsbury title, The Dangers of Fashion – Towards Ethical and Sustainable Solutions.

Capri Holdings Limited, a global fashion luxury group, is proud to release its first group-wide corporate social responsibility strategy on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

The report builds upon the meaningful initiatives that each of the company’s brands has already been working on, and outlines the company’s global strategy to achieve significant, measurable goals across a range of important environmental and social sustainability issues, including material sourcing, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, waste reduction, diversity and inclusion and philanthropic giving.

The company’s corporate social responsibility strategy is divided into three areas:

  1. Our World — focused on actions across the company’s operations and supply chain, meant to significantly reduce its environmental impact;
  2. Our Community — fostering a supportive, healthy, diverse and inclusive workplace for all of the company’s employees;
  3. Our Philanthropy — connecting the talents, energy and success of each of the company’s brands to those in need around the world.

All of the goals and objectives in the Capri Holdings corporate social responsibility report support the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

倫敦 — 2020422 — 全球時尚奢侈品集團Capri Holdings Limited (紐約證券交易所股票代號:CPRI) 欣然於「世界地球日」50周年隆重宣佈首項涵蓋整個集團的企業社會責任策略。



  1. 我們的世界以公司營運及供應鏈的策略為重點,致力大幅減少對環境的影響;
  2. 我們的社區為公司員工營造互相支持、多元共融和健康的工作環境;
  3. 我們的公益凝聚公司旗下品牌的人才、資源及成功經驗,援助世界各地的弱勢社群。

Capri Holdings企業社會責任報告載列的所有長遠目標及目的,均符合配合聯合國提出的17個可持續發展目標。


Capri Holdings has set targets to be 100% carbon neutral in its direct operations and to source 100% of energy for its owned and operated facilities from renewable sources by 2025. Building on its net zero carbon emissions commitment, and in an effort to deliver on the goals of the Paris Agreement, the company will also commit to set emissions reduction targets across its operations and supply chain with the Science Based Targets initiative by 2021.

The company has additionally committed to, and has already been working towards, a number of important initiatives.

  • All plastic in packaging to be recyclable, compostable, recycled or reusable by 2025
  • 100% of point-of-sale packaging materials to be recyclable or sustainably sourced by 2025
  • Partnering with key suppliers to reduce water use
  • Traceability of its supply chain
  • Sourcing at least 95% of its leather from certified tanneries by 2025
  • Furthering diversity and inclusion within the organization, including through the company’s new Global D&I Council

The report also highlights the company’s long-standing commitment to philanthropy, including the milestone achievement of delivering more than 19 million meals to children in hunger-stricken areas across the globe through the Michael Kors Watch Hunger Stop program.

Capri Holdings銳意於2025年前在直接營運的業務中實踐100%碳中和,並為其擁有及經營的設施全面採用來自可再生來源的能源。公司會恪守淨零碳排放的承諾,致力實踐《巴黎協定》提出的目標,同時亦竭力於2021年前透過「科學基礎減量目標」項目制定營運及供應鏈的減排目標。

  • 於2025年前落實針對人權及公平薪酬的供應鏈自強計劃,以配合聯會國針對在職婦女健康及賦權的企業行動框架

報告亦強調公司在慈善公益方面的長遠目標,包括透過Michael Kors Watch Hunger Stop計劃為全球飢荒地區的兒童提供超過1,900萬份營養餐膳的重要里程碑。


“We are proud of the actions our company is taking to drive positive environmental and social change within our organization and our world,” said John D. Idol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capri Holdings. “Early last year, soon after we created our global fashion luxury group, Capri Holdings, we assessed the sustainability efforts each of our brands was already undertaking, along with the core values shared by them. We also considered the responsibilities we collectively hold to the environment, to the communities in which we operate, and to the people with whom we work. We recognize that as our company grows, so do our responsibilities, and welcome the opportunity to do more. We believe that sound environmental and social policies are both ethically correct and fiscally responsible. To that end, we are committed to improving the way we work in order to better the world in which we live.”

Coinciding with the release of the company’s corporate social responsibility goals and objectives, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capri Holdings John D. Idol signed the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative established to support achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. By signing the UN Global Compact, Capri Holdings confirms its commitment to align its strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption, and its commitment to advance societal goals relating to sustainability.

In addition to its commitment to the UN Global Compact, Capri Holdings has previously signed the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles, the Fashion Pact, the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion and the Open to All Pledge, signaling its partnership with industry groups, corporate social responsibility leaders and other brands to create lasting change and increase the collective impact around environmental and social sustainability.

Capri Holdings主席兼行政總裁John D. Idol表示:「我們現正採取的行動在公司及全世界促進正面的環境及社會改變,此舉令我們深感自豪。我們去年成立全球時尚奢侈品集團Capri Holdings後,便著手評估旗下各個品牌的可持續發展工作,以及品牌共享的核心價值。我們亦反思對環境、業務所在社區及共事的人共同承擔的責任。我們發現隨著公司不斷壯大,我們的企業責任也越大,同時很高興有機會對社會作出更多貢獻。我們深信行之有效的環境及社會政策既符合道德,亦符合財務上的責任。為此,我們會努力改善做事的方式,令世界變得更美好。」

在公司公佈企業社會責任長遠目標及目的之際,Capri Holdings主席兼行政總裁John D. Idol亦簽署《聯合國全球契約》,這項全球最大型的企業可持續發展提案旨在協助實現可持續發展目標。簽署此契約後,Capri Holdings確定公司的策略及業務運作符合有關人權、勞工、環境及反貪腐的普世原則,並竭力提倡有關可持續發展的社會目標。

除了承諾遵從《聯合國全球契約》,Capri Holdings早前亦簽署聯合國《女性賦權原則》、《時尚協議》、《CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion》及《Open to All Pledge》,透過與行業團體、企業社會責任領袖及其他品牌合作,締造長遠的改變,並加強對環境及社會可持續發展的共同影響力。

World Bank to Strengthen Dominica’s COVID-19 Response with US$6.6 Million

The World Bank activated on April 15 US$6.6 million to provide immediate funding for Dominica’s emergency response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, focusing on enhancing health system capacity and strengthening food security. 

From the total amount activated, US$5.1 million will be used to bolster the capacity of Dominica’s public health system to manage COVID-19. Funds will be available to purchase drugs, medical supplies and equipment, and laboratory supplies to boost testing capacity and for minor retrofitting of isolation units.

Another US$1.5 million will be used to support agriculture and strengthen national food security during the pandemic. The intervention is targeted to reach an estimated 3,200 farmers to ensure that the local food supply chains are better able to meet the needs of the island.

The funds were mobilized under two projects using the Contingency Emergency Response Components (CERCs). CERCs allow funds to be reallocated from existing projects and used for emergency response activities. This allows countries to access resources rapidly to meet current priorities. US$3 million was reallocated from the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Regional Health Project and US$3.6 million from the Emergency Agricultural Livelihoods and Climate Resilience Project.

World Bank Group COVID-19 Response:

The World Bank Group is rolling out a US$14 billion fast-track package to strengthen the COVID-19 response in developing countries and shorten the time to recovery. The immediate response includes financing, policy advice and technical assistance to help countries cope with the health and economic impacts of the pandemic. The IFC is providing US$8 billion in financing to help private companies affected by the pandemic and preserve jobs. IBRD and IDA are making an initial US$6 billion available for the health-response. As countries need broader support, the World Bank Group will deploy up to US$160 billion over 15 months to protect the poor and vulnerable, support businesses, and bolster economic recovery.

H&M leads the Fashion Transparency Index 2020

H&M Group has been named number one out of 250 fashion brands in the latest Fashion Transparency Index, which ranks companies according to how much information they disclose about their suppliers, supply chain policies and practices, and social and environmental impact.

The fashion industry has been known for having a complex and opaque supply chain. Transparency has been a cornerstone of H&M Group’s sustainability work. Back in 2013, H&M Group was one of the first global fashion retailers to make its supplier list public.

Since then, the group has been taking steps to make it more accessible for customers to know where their products are made. Customers at arket.com can check the suppliers and factories making their favourite items, while last year, hm.com started offering additional information in almost all of their products, such as production country, supplier and factory names and addresses, as well as the number of workers in the factory. In addition, customers can find out more about the materials used to make a specific garment and are reminded to recycle their garments.

“It is a great honor to be ranked as number one in the Fashion Transparency Index 2020 and a great recognition of our work. We always aim to be as transparent as possible in our progress towards a more sustainable fashion future, as well as the challenges ahead, in order to keep driving industry change. We are committed to continue taking steps for greater transparency so customers can make informed decisions and drive a positive impact in the industry through our extensive work to become fully circular and climate positive, while being a fair and equal company,” says Hanna Hallin, Global Strategy Lead for Transparency at H&M Group.

Taking responsibility of how H&M Group’s products are made is fundamental to the group. Good working conditions, the impact on climate and health and safety, are areas in which the company has been working for many years, developing higher standards for its production. Even in extraordinary situations, such as the rapid spread of the COVID-19, the group stands by its responsible purchasing practices. H&M Group is well aware that the suppliers, and their employees, are extremely vulnerable in this situation. The group is in a close dialogue with several partners and industry stakeholders to see how it can and should support in this difficult situation with the aim of finding a joint industry solution.

Due to the limited resources of the planet and the climate crisis, the way we produce and consume fashion must change. As a global fashion retailer, H&M Group has a big role to play, which is why the group is transforming its whole business to become fully circular and climate positive. Being circular means having a different approach to how fashion is designed, produced and used, and how fashion should never be seen as waste. It should be treated as a valuable resource by reusing and recycling again and again.

Therefore, the company’s ambition to become circular includes, among others, offering its customers garment collecting options so a second life can be given through reusing and recycling, or increasing the use of recycled materials for its products, such as recycled polyester from old plastic bottles or recycled cotton from used garments.


On the evening of 29th April (Wednesday), La Rambla by Catalunya welcomes 7 guest Spanish chefs to cook alongside hosts Ferran Tadeo and Daniel Gallo, to raise funds as Spain remains one of the world’s worst-hit countries by the Covid-19 pandemic. All proceeds from La Rambla’s 10-course “COOK FOR SPAIN” dinner will be donated to World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organisation founded by James Beard Foundation award winner José Andrés that currently activates local restaurants and kitchens in Barcelona to serve and deliver meals to frontline healthcare workers and vulnerable members of community.

The one-night-only collaboration will see some of Hong Kong’s most celebrated Spanish chefs joining forces to cook 10 courses of traditional tapas-inspired dishes together. The chef line-up includes Ferran Tadeo & Daniel Gallo (La Rambla), Borja Sanchez (Los Ibericos), Alex Fargas (Fofo by El Willy + La Paloma), Martin Carrasco (Rubia),Miguel Gallo (Doubleshot by Cupping Room), Jordi Alcaraz (Elite Concepts) and Edgar Sanuy (Pica Pica).

Guests will indulge in a feast of contemporary Spanish fare with a glass of welcome cava and post dinner drink for HK$1,800 + 10% per person. During the dinner, there will be a wine roulette where guests can donate any amount of cash for a chance to spin the wheel, and win a glass of premium wine (courtesy of sponsors Los Ibericos, Eurolink, Leading Nation, Carret Private).

“In Hong Kong, we have a very tight knit Spanish community that has been devastated by what is happening in our home country with the Covid-19 pandemic. We want to do something to help so I gathered some of my Spanish F&B friends in Hong Kong for one night to share our food & passion for a good cause. This is the least we can do for Spain,” says Ferran Tadeo, Executive Chef of La Rambla by Catalunya.
