Leading Swedish association for sustainable business, NMC has awarded H&M CEO Karl Johan Persson this year's sustainable leadership award.
"There is no doubt that this is a leader prioritising to push for long-term change when it comes to improving working conditions and closing the loop," said Ylva Öhrnell, Chairman of NMC. "For H&M, a sustainable leadership is about leading the way and about working long-term, instead of choosing simple solutions not leading to lasting change. This is the key not only to a sustainable leadership but also for a sustainable approach in general. It's a great honour to receive this award, but without dedicated colleagues striving to be at the forefront, this would not have been possible", responded Karl-Johan Persson.
