C&A: number of manufacturing factories 2020, by country

German clothing retailer C&A sources its products from 32 different global suppliers. As of March 2020, Brazil hosts the highest number of supplier factories for the retail giant, with a total of 643 supplier factories. China and Bangladesh come in second and third place, with 241 and 147 factories respectively. In Germany, where the retailer is based, C&A only has five factories.

Revenue of C&A

In 2018, C&A was the ninth most successful clothing and accessories retailer worldwide as measured by revenue. In this year, C&A’s revenue amounted to 6.715 billion euros. Out of ten retailers surveyed, this places C&A at the bottom of the list. Inditex, the retailer responsible for the Zara stores, was the most successful, generating a revenue of 26.145 billion euros. Since 2011, C&A revenues have been consistently dropping in Germany. Despite this, C&A still ranks as one of the top five retailers in Europe in terms of the number of stores it operates across Europe.

Sustainability and transparency of C&A

C&A is one of the world’s most transparent and sustainable major fashion brands. The company ranked second when it comes to the 2020 Sustainable Cotton Ranking. In terms of carbon dioxide emissions, although C&A does not emit the lowest quantity of CO2, it does emit significantly less than retailers such as the Inditex Group responsible for the Zara brand, as well as Marks & Spencer and Asos.
