H&M Group to supply protective equipment for hospitals
H&M Group is arranging for its supply chain to switch to producing personal protective equipment for hospitals and health care workers.
The fashion retail group said it will use its supply chain capacity, including its purchasing operations and logistics capabilities, to start delivering the supplies as soon as possible to support countries worldwide.
The move follows H&M Group chief executive Helena Helmersson contacting the EU to find out the how the group could help.
Anna Gedda, head of sustainability at H&M Group, said: “The soronavirus is dramatically affecting each and every one of us, and H&M Group is, like many other organisations, trying our best to help in this extraordinary situation. We see this is as a first step in our efforts to support in any way we can. We are all in this together, and have to approach this as collectively as possible.”
