As the threat of climate change looms, French luxury goods holding company Kering and BSR (Business for Social Responsibility), a global non-profit business network and consultancy dedicated to sustainability, have published report titled “Climate Change: Implications And Strategies For The Luxury Fashion Sector” to help luxury fashion companies understand their specific vulnerabilities to climate change, and provide guidance on building new and more resilient business models.

According to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), around 50 per cent of an average corporation's carbon emissions come from the supply chain, and where the luxury sector is concerned the majority of these emissions can occur in raw material production and the initial processing stages.

Luxury fashion companies can be exposed to additional risks in their supply chains due to climate change that are beyond the typical risks of other sectors. On top of potential transport and delivery disruption, resource scarcity, and the challenges of social change, the luxury sector has particular sensitivities to climate change. This is mainly because of its reliance on high quality raw materials that come from production systems that are limited geographically and that are particularly vulnerable to climate variations.

The report focuses on key strategic raw materials for the luxury sector and provides a summary of an in-depth analysis on the current and future climate risks for cotton, cashmere, vicuna, silk, beef and calf leather, and sheep and lamb leather. Additionally, the report highlights how to build resilience in supply chains through a focus on both enhanced efficiency and innovative approaches to raw material production with actions and solutions that are already available for businesses.

According to the report, companies need to understand their supply chains and focus on supporting production systems for their raw materials that will be more resilient in the face of the shocks and volatility brought on by climate change.

It said both the quantity and quality of raw materials will be increasingly affected by the impacts of climate change, leading to significant business risks.

Climate change will affect many of the key production regions for luxury raw materials with some geographies being more vulnerable than others.

Raw materials that are geographically restricted, such as vicuna, are particularly vulnerable, the report warned.

It said the decline in the productivity of raw materials will have serious consequences for small holder producers and their communities.
