“New UN Reports Provide Fashion Industry with Strategies to Reduce Carbon Footprint”
– The UN Climate Change’s Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action has released two reports that offer strategies for the fashion sector to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in raw material activities.
– These reports provide comprehensive insights into the impact of the fashion and clothing industry on greenhouse gas emissions, focusing on animal fibers and man-made cellulosics.
The UN Climate Change’s Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action has recently published two reports aimed at assisting the fashion industry in reducing its carbon footprint. Lindita Xhaferi-Salihu, Sector Engagement Lead at UN Climate Change, commends these reports as valuable resources for understanding the impact of the fashion and clothing industry. Unlike previous studies that focused on cotton and polyester, the new reports delve deeper into animal fibers and man-made cellulosics, which are significant in the global fashion scene. By providing detailed greenhouse gas effect data and outlining gaps and issues, these authoritative reports empower Fashion Charter members to develop plans for reducing emissions in line with the goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. The creation of these gap analysis reports was led by Textile Exchange, with notable contributions from signatories such as Lenzing, Canopy, VF Corporation, Reformation, Primark, Schneider Group, Fabrikology, New Enzymes, Sateri, and others.
