"Climate change is such a complex and pressing problem, so it's high time that we are able to join forces in the industry, educate consumers and collectively take immediate action to stop the dramatic development," said Christiane Dolva, head of sustainability at Fjällräven.
The fashion industry is responsible for 10 per cent of global carbon emissions. Sustainability and minimum environmental impact are a critically prioritised aspect in all parts of Fjällräven's operations. Fjällräven's products are made with longevity, durability and sustainability in mind. Materials are selected from as many sustainable sources as possible, while animal welfare and social sustainability are always taken into account.
The Fashion for Climate Action Initiative is founded on the UN's Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, gathering leading fashion brands, retailers, supplier organisations, and others to collectively address the climate impact of the fashion sector across its entire value chain. By uniting them behind 16 principles and targets, the initiative aims to get stakeholders on track for a net-zero emissions economy by 2050, in line with the aim of the Paris Agreement.
"We've been working with similar goals for quite a while now at Fjällräven, creating plans, visions and taking action. In order to take those goals to the next level and reach results faster, more collective pressure is needed. By signing the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, we want to contribute to accelerating the fight against climate change, show our commitment and share our knowledge within the industry," added Dolva.
Fjällräven hopes that its actions and the commitment to the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action will inspire customers, communities and governments to raise their climate ambition in a united effort to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
"Climate change is real. The science is clear," said Fjällräven's CEO of Americas and VP of Fenix Outdoor International AG, Nathan Dopp. "Our main goal at Fjällräven has always been to inspire more people to spend time in nature. The reality of our goal means that we have a clear responsibility to protect the environment. To be able to collaborate with the fashion industry via Fjällräven's commitment to the UN Global Climate Change Action Initiative is a big step toward deepening our sustainability actions locally and globally."
