Chinese authorities have asked H&M to change the plan on its website as part of the latest conflict between the massive clothing and official presence there, media reports on Friday.
The company, based mainly in Sweden, has faced a backlash in China in recent days after reporting concerns about alleged human rights violations in Xinjiang Province over the past year.
ABC News said the Executive Director of Shanghai asked H&M for the fairness of "China's troubled plan."
H&M was no longer responding directly to phone calls or emails requesting comments.
Citing the Shanghai director's statement, ABC said network users reported difficulties managing the H&M online website, and the Shanghai Municipal Planning and Natural Resource Office ordered its modification.
The Wall Boulevard Journal cites the Shanghai branch of the Chinese Cyberspace Administration, which announced that the H&M website internet operator has taken action to address the environmental problem.
In the past week, H&M said it could possibly act to steal trust in China after the assurance it made in 2020 about sourcing cotton there has reappeared on social media.
In the statement, the industry's second-largest clothing retailer expressed concern regarding allegations of pressure on labor in Xinjiang, and stated that it is probably no longer sourcing cotton from there.
