Zara is one of the largest clothing companies in the world, belonging to the Inditex group. The offer includes everyday clothes as well as more elegant clothes for both men and women. Unfortunately, Zara's sizes are quite small, so people who want to buy clothes in larger sizes, e.g. from 40, may have a problem with it. About 35% of all clothes carry the "Join Life" label, which means that the clothes are made of more responsible materials, such as recycled fabrics, cellulose fibers or BCI cotton. However, it is worth checking the labels and percentage content of specific raw materials. About 64% of the paper in cardboard packaging is recycled. Around 91% of the paper, cardboard, wood, plastic, metal and textile waste generated at Inditex's headquarters, logistics centers and own factories is reused and recycled through internal loops, thus minimizing the use of virgin raw materials. The brand has committed itself to becoming climate neutral by 2040. Zara has an ISO 45001 management system. Zara is an extensive chain, operating on different continents, employing thousands of employees. Unfortunately, the company is not transparent enough and has not published its list of suppliers who will be located in countries such as: Bangladesh, China, Turkey, India, Portugal. Zara is making some efforts to improve employment conditions in its supply chain. The company conducts social audits in subcontractor factories in accordance with the standards of the Ethical Trading Initiative and communicates their results and what corrective actions it takes. Zara has signed the ACCORD agreement on fire safety for factory buildings in Bangladesh. As part of social activities, the brand has developed about 13 social initiatives whose main goal was to reduce hunger in the countries of the Global South.
