H&M to use supply chain for protective equipment for hospitals

H&M will use its supply chain to deliver essential supplies including protective equipment to hospitals, in order to help with the rising demand during the coronavirus pandemic.

The retailers’ supply chain teams around the world are now utilising their purchasing and logistics capabilities to start delivering medical PPE as soon as possible.

Anna Gedda, head of sustainability H&M Group, said: “The coronavirus 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.”
