“Moda re-“, a partnership with Cáritas to give a second life to clothes

We play an active role in the MODA re- project for managing and using unsold clothes or clothes donated at the Group's collection points. As part of this project, we set up a network of clothes containers in our stores. There are several destinations for clothes that cannot be reused, such as sorting for textile recycling projects or energy recovery, thus completing the circular economy cycle. For this, Caritas employs people at risk of social exclusion.

#ECISeVisteDeRosa campaign

On the occasion of the WHO's International Day against Breast Cancer, we placed themed products on our shelves and allocated part of the proceeds to breast cancer research. We also lit up the façades of our department stores with pink light and launched a line of themed shopping bags. We are also funding research by a multidisciplinary team at several hospitals.
