Salvatore Ferragamo joins the Fashion Pact
With environmental sustainability at the heart of its developmental policies, Salvatore Ferragamo along with 32 top fashion and textiles companies has signed the Fashion Pact that aims to set practical, tangible goals to reduce the environmental impact of this important industry.
The Fashion Pact goals are based on Science-Based Targets with a focus on three key areas for saving the planet: to stop global warming by creating and taking steps to achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050; to restore biodiversity by safeguarding natural ecosystems; and finally, to reduce the fashion industry’s impact on the oceans through practical measures such as gradually curtailing the use of single-use plastics.
“We are proud to be part of this initiative. Thanks to the Fashion Pact, for the first time, major fashion industry players are joining forces to take on the largest environmental challenges of our century. Meeting today’s needs without preventing future generations from meeting theirs is an immense challenge that we must all resolve together,” announced Ferruccio Ferragamo, President of Salvatore Ferragamo.
Salvatore Ferragamo’s participation in the Fashion Pact comes as no surprise. The Italian fashion powerhouse is known to promote sustainability through its wide range of projects and most recently, through its Sustainable Thinking Exhibition by Museo Salvatore Ferragamo.
