Fashion pact commits to certifaction of high impact materials

Thirty-two luxury, fashion and textile companies have signed a new commitment to protect climate, biodiversity and the oceans of the world, calling the new initiative the Fashion Pact.

Representatives presented the idea of the new agreement to the president of France, Emmanuel Macron, at a special meeting in Paris on August 23. Mr Macron arranged for the leaders of the G7 group of the wealthiest states in the world to see a presentation on the Fashion Pact during the G7 Summit in Biarritz, which takes place from August 24-26.

The chief executive of the Kering Group, François-Henri Pinault, will deliver the presentation.

The initial group of 32 companies supporting the agreement includes adidas, H&M, Nike, Ruyi and Puma.

These companies have said they want to set science-based targets to help them combat global warming, restore biodiversity and natural ecosystems, and protect the oceans.

“The pact contains best efforts that are concrete, that is, visionary but achievable,” the group said in a statement published on August 23.

In the statement, they said they would aim to eliminate sourcing from “intensive feed-lot based farming and supporting production systems that optimise the animals’ time on natural pasture, aligned with the adoption of animal welfare standards across the industry”.

They also said they would support the development and implementation of certifications schemes for all key “and high-high impact” materials, including leather, cotton, cashmere, wool, metals, viscose and synthetic fibres.
