- Animal welfare is important to H&M and our ambition is to improve animal welfare in our supply chain and in our industry. To help us succeed with this bold ambition we have decided to also partner with the well-known animal welfare organization, Humane Society International.

An essential part of our sustainability work is collaborating with stakeholders to push the industry forward and through a collective approach we can achieve a lot more within animal welfare as well. That is why we have decided to team up with one of the largest animal welfare organisations in the world, Humane Society International (HSI), with the shared aim to improve animal welfare in the fashion and beauty industry on a more holistic and strategic term.
HSI is one of the largest global animal welfare organizations globally, and they have the skills and knowledge we need to meet our vision and we have the size and global reach to help them in their work to promote the humane treatment of animals.
“It is always exciting to partner with a company that shares our passion for animal protection. Working with H&M to end cosmetics animal testing, and improve the lives of animals on farms, will set a high standard for others to follow. It will show that it not only makes good ethical sense to treat animals with kindness and compassion, but it makes good business sense too” says HSI’s CEO Andrew Rowan.
This collaboration creates a great opportunity for H&M to contribute to positive animal welfare development within our industry. It aims both to improve the welfare of animals on farms connected to our animal derived fibres, as well as to achieve a global ban on animal testing.
