Fashion Pact adds 24 more members

 

 

The Fashion Pact adds new members. The agreement, which sets the roadmap for sustainability in the fashion industry, has added twenty-four new members, including Farfetch and Calzedonia, raising the number to 56 companies.

 

Among the new members are Auchan Retail, Bally, Group, Celio, Darmartex Group, Decathlon, Eralda, Etam Group, Mango, Gant, Geox, Groupe Beaumanoir, Groupe Eram, GTS Group, Kiabi, Lady Lawyer Fashion Archive, Nana Judy, Paul & Joe, Promod, Spartoo-Andre and Visuality Corporation.

 

The new representatives met yesterday in Paris to discuss the plan that each member must carry out and translate sustainable commitments into practical and achievable goals like carbon footprint reduction and the use of water.

 

 

 

 

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.
