H&M Group appoints new head of sustainability

Leyla Ertur is taking over as the H&M Group’s head of
sustainability, effective January 1, 2021. She will take the reins
from Anna Gedda, who has led the company’s work in sustainability for
six years. Gedda will become the H&M Group’s new head of steering and
strategic planning.

Ertur has been with the company since 2000. Over the past two
decades, she has led teams across HR, production and global supply
chain management. Most recently, she held dual positions as regional
country manager production for Europe and head of global quality
strategy and compliance.

“Leyla’s vast experience working in our production countries
combined with her leadership skills make her ideally suited to carry
on the fantastic work Anna and her team have done over the past six
years,” Helena Helmersson, the H&M Group’s CEO, said in a press
release. “I’m excited about what she will bring to the role as we
continue pushing the boundaries within sustainability, driving the
agenda both at H&M Group and for the industry.”
