Mango gets SBTi approval for emissions reduction targets

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2022-06-06 17:53:44 – Spain

The Science-Based Aims initiative (SBTi) has validated that Spanish fashion group Mango’s, science-based targets are in accordance with the Paris Agreement's goals.

The SBTi has accepted Mango's aims to cut overall scope 1 and 2 emissions by 80% and scope 3 emissions by 35%, respectively, in comparison to 2019, and to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

The SBTi is a joint initiative of CDP,  the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The SBTi establishes and promotes best practices in science-based goal setting, provides tools and support to overcome adoption hurdles, and evaluates and approves company targets independently.

Mango's Strategic Sustainability Plan aims to be carbon-neutral by 2050. To meet this goal, the company has set intermediate targets for 2030: an 80% reduction in direct greenhouse gas emissions, as well as those generated by the energy it consumes (scopes 1 and 2), and a 35% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions produced in its supply chain, products and services, fuel and energy, and transportation and distribution (scope 3), all using 2019 as the base year.

Mango has a cross-departmental action plan for the entire organization in order to meet its science-based aims. Policies aimed at reducing scope 1 and 2 emissions are mostly focused on energy efficiency, renewable energy purchases, and electrification.

Mango claims that their overall consumption of renewable energy with guaranteed origin climbed by 19.5 percent to 59 percent of total energy consumed in 2021. According to the company, nearly all of the electrical energy consumed at its headquarters, warehouses, and company stores in Spain last year was renewable, as was virtually all of the energy consumed in virtually all of its company stores in Austria, France, Greece, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Sweden, and Switzerland, as well as its offices in France.

Mango plans to gradually increase the number of garments with Committed characteristics within its collection, focusing on sustainable or environmentally friendly materials such as recycled cotton, organic cotton, recycled polyester, and cellulose fibers, in order to minimize scope 3 emissions.

Following the achievement of 80 percent of all clothing being offered under the Committed label in 2021, the firm moved up its sustainability objectives in February. Mango also predicts that by 2025, 100% of polyester will be recycled, 100% of cellulose fibers will be of regulated origin and traceable origin, and 100% of cotton will be more sustainable.

The Mango Sustainability Plan also calls for the engagement and collaboration of a variety of organizations and projects in order to reduce the company's environmental effect. In 2019, Mango reiterated its commitment to sustainability by joining the Fashion Pact, the first worldwide initiative in the fashion sector to band together and combat climate change, and in 2020, Mango signed the United Nations Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, which sets out 16 principles to advance together to reduce the impact of the fashion industry on the planet.

Toni Ruiz, Mango CEO, said that it's fantastic news for Mango that a globally recognized organization like the SBTi has validated and believes in its emissions reduction objectives. Now is the moment for them to devote all of their efforts to reach their yearly objectives in the short and long term, as well as reducing their environmental effect.
