Our material commitments encourage the industry to set ambitious sourcing targets.
Aiming to catalyze a market shift toward fibers and materials that bring about improved environmental and social outcomes, we’re asking companies to set themselves targets to source more responsible solutions through our material commitments.
Cotton and polyester are two of the most used fibers in the fashion and textile industry, but both come with their own sustainability issues to overcome. That’s why we’re asking companies to set themselves targets to source more responsible solutions through our material challenges.
Accelerating the adoption of more responsible materials is just the first step
Our aim is for more sustainably sourced fibers and materials to replace their conventional counterparts, rather than substitute other types of materials or justify increased industry growth. This, coupled with investment in innovation, the scaling of existing solutions, and an emphasis on degrowth, can help us reach our Climate+ goals on time.
HOW IT WORKS
We’re tracking progress, together
Each year, participating companies report their journeys through our Materials Benchmark, allowing us to track progress towards the goals of each commitment. All the information is anonymous and aggregated across all the participants in the annual challenges dashboard. Your company information will never be singled out and published without your company’s explicit request or consent.
