MADRID – Major fashion brand signatories of the United Nations’ Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action (UNFCCC) have endorsed a communique which invites governments the world over to collaborate with industry in fast-tracking efforts to meet the Paris Climate Agreement’s environmental targets.

It was a year ago at COP24 in Katowice, Poland, that the Charter was first introduced with the mission statement of aligning fashion firms keen to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and switch to renewable energy sources; this, in an attempt to mitigate a global warming increase of 1.5oC.

A recent UN report indicated that industry is not doing enough to this end, with climate scientists warning that the world is on course to warm by 3.2oC this century, signalling a widely cited “climate disaster”.

As COP25 continues in Madrid, all fashion brand signatories of the Fashion Charter have thrown down the gauntlet to governments of “all major fashion producing and consuming countries” to work cohesively with industry to bring about “deeper, more systemic change”.
