H&M partners up with Matrix Renewables
The Swedish-based fashion retailer has signed an agreement with the platform Matrix Renewables to contribute to the continued decarbonization of Europe’s consumer goods sector and accelerate the energy transition
"We are excited to support H&M Group in achieving its sustainability goals and we look forward to working closely with the fashion group as it progresses along this journey. This initiative is consistent with our belief that the development, construction and operation of cost-effective clean energy projects can foster economic growth while preserving the environment”, commented Luis Sabaté, President and COO of the Madrid-based platform Matrix Renewables.

The long-term agreement will help "H&M reaching its goal of becoming climate positive". The group aims at using 100% renewable energy in its operations and is also expecting to further intensify the use of renewable energy among partners and suppliers.

The announcement of this partnership follows other sustainable initiatives already underway by the fast-fashion retailer. Not so long ago, H&M introduced eco-friendly packaging for deliveries and recycled apparel collections, such as its 100% recycled denim line.
