Inditex has always been fully committed to sustainability and the protection of human rights throughout its value chain. In this respect, following the approval of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, we have committed to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), embracing the route to sustainability charted by these goals.

Cooperation with our different stakeholders is vital, as joining forces with a range of different partners is how we are able to maximise our contribution, adopting the SDGs as our own and making progress in a collaborative way on the route to sustainability set out in the goals.

Based on the alignment of Inditex’s priorities with the SDGs, we have created qualitative and quantitative indicators that measure our contribution to the fulfilment of the SDGs. To this end, we have made use of the indicators set out in the guide developed by the UN Global Compact, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and World Business Council for Sustainable Development, which establishes links between the SDGs and the GRI standards.

In fact, Inditex forms part of the Corporate Action Group for Reporting on the Sustainable Development Goals organized jointly by the UN Global Compact and the GRI with the aim of shaping the future of corporate reporting on the SDGs and compiling best practices in this area. The table of indicators is available on p. 224 of the Sustainability Balance Sheet.
