Fast Retailing puts back PFC elimination plans

Written by John Mowbray

TOKYO – Fast Retailing, owner of fast growing Japanese fast fashion brand Uniqlo, has put back by 18 months plans to eliminate per-fluorinated chemicals (PFCs) from its textile supply chains as part of its Greenpeace Detox commitments. The company, which initially pledged to eliminate all PFC use by no later than July 2016, is now aiming for an elimination date of autumn 2017. The company joins Benetton and Valentino in missing its PFC elimination target, although all have made significant progress in terms of cutting down PFC use and investigating and testing alternative oil and water repellency solutions.
