Vogue UK: 6 Ways Fashion Could Become More Sustainable In 2023
Posted on 11th January 2023
Emily Chan, Vogue UK, says "while the conversation around sustainability in fashion has grown in recent years, progress remains slow."
"In fact, a recent study by Stand.Earth found that only one of 10 major brands it looked at – all of which have signed up to the United Nations Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action – was on track to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 55 per cent by 2030 and keep in line with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5C limit.
The need for greater accountability from brands, then, is likely to be a strong focus next year. Addressing the issue of greenwashing will be key, as a raft of new legislation looks to crackdown on brands that are overstating or not telling the full truth about the eco-credentials of their products. Meanwhile, the 10-year anniversary of the devastating Rana Plaza collapse, when 1,134 people died following the collapse of a garment factory complex in Dhaka, Bangladesh, will see a renewed focus on the need for greater protection for garment workers.
Below, see six ways the fashion industry could become more sustainable in 2023."
