Your fashionistas at Stand.earth are shaking up the fashion industry, and I'm not just talking about the latest runway designs. We just released a scorecard that compares the top 45 fashion companies on the strength of their climate commitments. The industry hasn’t been hit this hard since Lady Gaga’s meat dress hit the red carpet.
Our report underscores that the fashion industry needs to take collective responsibility for its climate pollution. At nearly a tenth of global climate emissions, this industry holds the keys to radically transforming global manufacturing and distribution systems. And while we’re already seeing signs of climate movement (Gap, Puma, Nike, we see you), many companies are using sustainability as a greenwashing front to hide behind their climate inaction.
17 companies are 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 Aldo, 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.
