Climate+ guides the fashion and textile industry towards a shared goal.
At the heart of our organizational strategy, Climate+, is the goal of guiding the industry towards reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from fiber and raw material production by 45% by 2030. But it doesn’t stop there. The way we lead the industry is unique in how it goes beyond accounting for greenhouse gas emissions to looking at sustainability holistically instead.
We focus on how fibers and materials are farmed, sourced, or extracted.
Most of the familiar materials in the fashion and textiles industry today come from farming, forests, or fossil fuels. These are three of the biggest focus areas in the challenge to limit global warming and mitigate the most serious impacts of climate change. We’re doing just that by making sure these fibers are produced in a way that supports our planet, its ecosystems, its landscapes, and its communities.
There are three key areas of impact–and opportunity.
The most important aspect of Climate+ is its interdisciplinary, interconnected approach. It does away with blanket solutions in favor of tailored, targeted strategies for three independent impact areas.
Track industry progress toward Climate+
The Climate+ Dashboard measures progress toward our Climate+ goals. It looks at fiber and material production data against a 2019 baseline and calculates the associated GHG emissions and water impacts.
Take the next step on your sustainability journey
We can’t make meaningful progress toward our goals without input from every corner of the industry. That’s why we provide tools, resources, and initiatives that help everyone, from farmers to suppliers and brands, find the next step to take on their sustainability journey.
