BRANDS PRESENT THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL ‘FASHION PACT’ AT THE G7

By Crash

On the occasion of the G7 summit happening from August 24th through August 26th in Biarritz, France, thirty-two global fashion and textile companies have linked up to sign a Fashion Pact. The pact focuses on three major areas in which they vow to make positive changes: climate, biodiversity and oceans. Today it is presented to different heads of state following an official invitation by Emmanuel Macron. The French president had asked François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kering to bring together all the leading actors in fashion and start planning out a more respectful way of producing and selling clothing.

Here are the Fashion Pact’s official objectives: 

  • Stop global warming: by creating and deploying an action plan for achieving the objective of zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, in order to keep global warming below a 1.5°C pathway between now and 2100.
  • Restore biodiversity: by achieving objectives that use Science-Based Targets to restore natural ecosystems and protect species.
  • Protect the oceans: by reducing the fashion industry’s negative impact on the world’s oceans through practical initiatives, such as gradually removing the usage of single-use plastics.
