Despite the enormity of the climate challenge, there is much good news in the fashion and textiles industry. Companies are undertaking substantive actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address the impacts of climate change. Their efforts span internal and external constituencies, address many issues that impact emissions, and build progress toward carbon neutrality.
Friction Points in Fashion & Textiles 2021 breaks the climate journey into four components: defining GHG reduction success, mobilizing internal resources, transforming the supply chain, and extending impact externally. Addressing all of these using a whole-of-business approach is critical to achieving absolute carbon emissions reductions commensurate with the aggressive goals set by corporate leaders and industry bodies. Friction Points focuses primarily on the first three, with a particular emphasis on fibers and materials.
Over the coming weeks, The Climate Board will be sharing the friction points uncovered in each stage of the journey. Join our mailing list to be alerted when we release new content or contact us to learn more.
