About H&M Foundation
The H&M Foundation is an independent non-profit global foundation headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. It is privately funded by the Stefan Persson family, founders and main owners of the H&M Group. Created to accelerate progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030, H&M Foundation uses collaboration and innovation to co-create, fund and share solutions for the world’s most urgent challenges.
Today, the Foundation has twelve employees and we are extending our Planet team to further strengthening our role as the impatient visionaries by building ecosystems of programs and partners to create and scale impact. To succeed, we must address challenges within the entire earth system – not only climate – but also water, ocean, biodiversity and land and across every step of the industry’s value chain. And we cannot settle with reducing negative impact or even neutralising it, instead, our actions must lead to a planet positive future.
