During the UN Climate Chance Conference in Katowice, Poland (COP24), the global fashion sector has increased momentum to address climate change by launching the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, in which H&M group is one of the signatories together with other leading fashion brands, retailers, supplier organizations and others.
“This charter is about getting the fashion industry united in important climate work. Our industry has a global reach and only together can we create the change that is urgently needed. We are happy to be a signatory of this charter as part of our ambition to become climate positive in our value chain.” SAID Karl-Johan Persson, CEO H&M group.
The Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action recognizes the crucial role that fashion plays on both sides of the climate equation; as a contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, and as a sector with multiple opportunities to reduce emissions while contributing to sustainable development.
