YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2020-12-22 14:15:52 – Japan

ASICS becomes the first Japanese company to join the Fashion Pact. The company has made its announcement and look forward to joining the initiative.

In August 2019, Thirty-two fashion and textile companies signed the Fashion Pact, to join hands and protect the climate, biodiversity and the oceans of the world.

A year after its foundation, the group announced that its membership had nearly doubled to 60 organisations, representing around 200 brands. It said this equated to about one-third of the global fashion industry.

Some of the sports brands involved are Decathalon, Moncler, Puma, Nike and Adidas. ASICS stated that they have joined the group as a part of its focus on climate change. The company announced a commitment to set science-based emissions reduction targets in support of global efforts to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

ASICS targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at business locations by 38% compared to its figures for 2015, and by 55% per product along the supply chain by 2030. They are preparing to raise these targets in 2021.

In addition, the company has made a commitment to source 100% sustainable cotton for its apparel and accessories by 2025.
