PUMA joins Global Fashion Pact to protect the world's climate, biodiversity and oceans

August 26, 2019

According to the United Nations, the Fashion Industry contributes to 10 % of global greenhouse gas emissions.

To protect the world’s climate, biodiversity and oceans, PUMA joined the Global Fashion Pact, which was presented ahead of the G7 Summit in Biarritz, France last week.

A coalation of 32 companies from the Fashion industry launched the pact that focuses on three key areas to avoid the most disastrous consequences of a changing climate:

  • Creating and deploying an Action Plan for achieving the objective of zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050
  • Restore biodiversity by achieving objectives that use Science-Based Targets to restore natural ecosystems and protect species
  • Protect the oceans by reducing the fashion industry’s impact on the world’s oceans through initiatives, such as removing the use of single-use plastics.

“As we work in shared supply chains across the world, PUMA believes that it is essential to bring the industry together to achieve meaningful change and improve our environmental impact,”said PUMA CEO Bjørn Gulden.“We strongly believe in this initiative and look forward to working together with our partners on the priorities we have set out in the Fashion Pact.”

We aim for representation of at least 20 per cent of the global fashion industry as measured by volume of products. The goal would be to have a mix of luxury, mid-level and affordable brands across the fashion sector

Statement from the Fashion Pact

Taking Action

Joining the Global Fashion Pact is not the only thing that PUMA does in order to help recuding climate change: It was a founding member of the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Change which aims to reduce greenhouse gases to make the textile industry and all parts of its supply chain climate-neutral by the middle of the century.
