Nike hops onto the bandwagon of Climate Change by
signing UN Fashion Charter
Nike has joined forces with other global brands, retailers and
suppliers by signing the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate
Action, a commitment under the United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change.
They are committed to helping achieve the industry’s most
aggressive climate targets by targeting a 30 per cent reduction
in aggregate greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and a vision to
achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
“Issues as big and complex as climate change call for us to
collaborate across our industry and beyond. That’s why we’re
committed to doing just that in partnership with UN Climate
Change – teaming up with peers and partners across sectors to do
what’s right for our planet and for the future of sport,” said
Noel Kinder, Nike’s Chief Sustainability Officer in a statement.
Industry giants like Adidas, PVH Corp, Kering Group, Gap Inc.,
H&M Group, Inditex, and VF Corp. have also become a part of the
UN Fashion Charter, which was first launched at the UN
international climate negotiations, held in Poland in December
Being a member of the United Nations Global Compact prior to
this, Nike has been dedicated to working alongside a
cross-sector coalition dedicated to advancing sustainable
development. Its partnership with RE100 has also strengthened
its stance on driving broader change by committing to source
100 per cent renewable energy.
