The RealReal, a leader in authenticated luxury consignment, has become the first in the resale industry to join the UN Climate Change's Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action. Alongside over 60 participating companies-- including luxury leaders like Kering and retailers like Levi's, RealReal will be helping forge a more sustainable future for fashion.

"The RealReal has been an advocate for reducing fashion's footprint from day one," said Julie Wainwright, CEO of The RealReal. "We're a proud member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's CE100 USA, and joining this Charter is a natural next step for us to be an agent for change on a global level. We're excited to be a voice for the circular economy in actionable conversations about reducing fashion's impact."

By taking responsibility for their carbon footprint and engaging the industry around a path to a low-carbon future, members of the Charter aim to limit global warming and inspire climate action even beyond the fashion sector. The RealReal has joined one of the initiative's working groups to help create a clear path to achieve the actions outlined in the Charter and has taken a personal stance on reducing its environmental impact.

"We make it easy for consumers to shift their consumption behaviors to a more sustainable model, and we challenge ourselves as a company to find new ways to become increasingly sustainable," added Wainwright. "As part of joining the Charter, we're working toward reducing our carbon emissions by 30 per cent by 2030." (RR)
