Sustainability is an integral part of H&M. The brand is growing and making significant long-term investments for sustainable development. In 2013, H&M launched Garment Collecting, an in-store clothing recycling project and was the first global fashion company to implement such a program. In 2016 alone, H&M U.S. diverted over two million lbs. of unwanted textiles from landfills and was also named by Ethisphere as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the sixth year.
Since H&M opened the doors to its first U.S. store 16 years ago, the U.S. has been one of the retailer’s most successful markets. H&M is proud to offer U.S. consumers quality fashion at competitive prices at its 464 locations across the country, and looks forward to continued expansion at the best properties worldwide.
