New chance to join the 2020 Circular Fashion System Commitment
At the 2017 Copenhagen Fashion Summit, Global Fashion Agenda pushed for a Call to Action for a Circular Fashion System. Many global fashion companies, small and large, have already committed to acting on circularity, among them, adidas, ASOS, H&M Group, Kering, Nudie Jeans, Target and Reformation.
Now it’s your turn to join the effort. We’ve just opened up for a second round of signatories to sign the commitment. So, if you’re a fashion brand or retailer committed to a more circular fashion system, sign the letter on our website today.
Today’s linear “take, make, dispose” economic model, which sends too many garments to landfills and incinerators, is simply not sustainable. Globally only 20% of clothing is collected for reuse or recycling and waste from the fashion industry is projected to increase, bringing the total to 148 million tonnes by 2030 – the equivalent of 17.5 kg per inhabitant on the planet.
Signatories commit to defining a circular strategy, setting targets for June 2020 and reporting on the progress of implementing the commitment. Global Fashion Agenda will support the brands in implementing the commitment through knowledge sharing, policy engagement and by facilitating industry alignment.
The deadline for signing the 2020 Circular Fashion System Commitment Letter is 31 December 2017.
