The H&M Foundation is a non-profit global foundation, operating outside of H&M’s value chain with its own staff, strategy and board. Through partnerships with influential organizations around the globe, we work on a global scale for systemic change with transformative programs, and in local projects to directly address urgent needs.
Its work is focused on four areas: Education, Water, Equality and Planet. In addition to this, we can also provide emergency relief.
The H&M Foundation strives to be a catalyst for change and our strategy is based on three guiding principles:
- Innovation — we approach challenges in new ways.
- Involvement — we involve people in making a difference.
- Impact— we seek to achieve real change.
This Impact Report covers the work of the H&M Foundation from October 2013 to 31 December 2016.
