Forty-three brands, retailers and organizations — including Adidas, Gap, H&M and Target — launched the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, seeking to address climate impact across the fashion supply chain.
Signatories to the charter set up six working groups that will outline implementation steps to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Issues to be addressed include using sustainable materials, low-carbon transport, improving consumer awareness and working with financial and government entities to spur innovation.
The charter members also set up initial targets to phase out coal sources in their own operations and direct suppliers’ by 2025 and reduce greenhouse gas emissions 30% by 2030.
