At Textile Exchange, our goal is to help the fashion and textile industry achieve a 45% reduction in the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that come from producing fibers and raw materials by 2030.This is known as Tier 4 of the supply chain, and it accounts for 24% of the industry’s GHG impacts related to it.
This goal underpins our Climate+ strategy. We call it Climate+, because it goes beyond accounting for GHG emissions. Instead, it is an interconnected approach that swaps siloed solutions for interdependent impact areas like soil health, water, and biodiversity.
The + is also an acknowledgment that Textile Exchange cannot achieve this goal alone. Only through strong partnerships can we accelerate the adoption of preferred fibers, close the innovation gap, and enable a reformed approach to growth.
