We made quite the stir when we released our Filthy Fashion Climate Scorecard in October comparing 45 fashion companies on the strength of their climate commitments. Our report underscored that the fashion industry needs to take collective responsibility for its climate pollution. At nearly a tenth of global climate emissions, the onus is on the whole industry to radically transform its global manufacturing and distribution systems.
And while we’ve seen some promising commitments from some companies (we see you Aldo & The North Face), 16 companies are still on a pathway to climate catastrophe. These companies have little to no climate commitments. What’s worse? They all claim to care about sustainability.
Sign the petition to C&A, Columbia, Disney, Hanes, JCPenney, Lands' End, L.L. Bean, Lululemon Athletica, LVMH, Macy's, MEC, Nordstrom, Pentland, Primark, REI and Under Armour. Tell these companies to take climate action seriously by committing to strong climate targets that put the world on a path to 1.5 degrees of warming or less.

*** UPDATE: When we first launched this petition in October 2019, Aldo was part of the Filthy Fashion 17. Since then, the shoe giant has stepped up its climate game and made commitmets to keep the world off a path to climate catastrophe, shifting this group to a Filthy Fashion 16. Who will be next take action?
