Fashion Pact is backed by the different actors in the industry, from luxury to retailers, sports and fast fashion. Among the companies are Inditex, Adidas, Bestseller, Burberry, Capri, Carrefour, Chanel, Fung Group, Gap, Giorgio Armani, H&M, Hermès, Kering, Nike, Nordstrom, Prada, PVH, Ruyi, Stella McCartney or Tapestry, among others.
The companies signed to work within the framework of the Science Based Targets (SBT) initiative, with scientifically measurable goals. This program is based on three points: stop climate change, restore biodiversity and protect the oceans.
Within each of these areas there are different steps, from reaching zero greenhouse gas emissions in 2050 to protecting ecosystems or eliminating single-use plastics. Some of the concrete measures include the sustainable extraction of raw materials and the use of renewable energies, the elimination of raw materials that require high-impact intensive consumption or the eradication of toxic chemicals from the chain.
