Retail brands, Take Action

The retail sector generates some of the highest emissions of all industries globally. Looking across the full value chain, the apparel and footwear industries alone contribute to 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The industry is responsible for wasting a truck worth of textiles every second. Meanwhile, the retail sector is one of the most watched and regulated by consumers. Customers are voting with their buying power, supporting brands that prioritize the planet. In order to thrive well into the future, retail companies – and every company – will need to reduce emissions.
