Fashion climate initiative launches in Poland's coal hub

Published: 2020-09-16

WASHINGTON – The Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action has today launched a new ‘playbook’ to enable actors in the fashion supply chain to identify what climate actions to take and which initiatives could support them on the road  to decarbonisation.


The new playbook is primarily intended for small and medium-sized fashion companies that have yet to take any action on climate change, but who want to join larger players in the sector to deliver 'net zero emissions' by 2050.



Officially launched back in December 2018 at the COP 24 in Poland, signatories to the initial Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action set targets to reduce their aggregate greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent by 2030 and promised to phase out coal-fired boilers or other sources of coal-fired heat and power generation in their own businesses and direct suppliers from 2025.



“We hope that this playbook will be a useful tool to rally everyone in our industry behind the goals of the Paris Agreement,” said Stefan Seidel, Chair of the Fashion Charter Steering Committee and Head of Corporate Sustainability at Puma.
