Dozens of fashion giants sign pact to eliminate emissions and single-use plastics

Mango, Farfetch and Decathlon are among a coalition of 24 big-name fashion brands to have signed Kering’s Fashion Pact this week, committing them to net-zero emissions globally by mid-century.

Unveiled at the G7 summit this summer by Kering’s chairman and chief executive officer Francois-Henri Pinault, the Fashion Pact binds signatories to set science-based emissions reduction targets in line with a 1.5C trajectory – which,  according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), will require most organisations to reach net-zero carbon status by 2050.

It additionally requires signatories to remove all single-use plastics from business-to-business and consumer-facing products and services by 2030 and to support new technologies aimed at minimising waterborne microplastic pollution – a key source of which is the laundering of synthetic fabrics which contain polymers, such as polyester and viscose.
