Swedish fashion firms support STICA for sustainability
Swedish fashion firms that include KappAhl, H&M, and Peak Performance, are supporting the UN’s Fashion Industry Charter on Climate Action. With the initiative Swedish Textile Initiative for Climate Action (STICA), the firms will help to reduce their climate impact by at least 30 per cent by 2030, in line with the Fashion Industry Charter on Climate Action.

The purpose of STICA is to support the Swedish fashion and textile industry in its efforts to reduce its climate impact and stimulate industry innovation. To achieve this, STICA is creating a platform for knowledge sharing, collaboration and reporting. The initiative’s vision is that the Sweden's fashion and textile industry shall lead the way and be climate-positive well before 2050, according to KappAhl.

STICA now invites other Swedish fashion and textile companies of all sizes, as well as industry associations and NGO’s that can serve as supporting partners, to join the initiative. STICA’s first task will be to assess the climate impact of its members and, on the basis of this, create action plans where members work together to share knowledge and implement solutions. STICA will also report on progress in order to allow all stakeholders to follow developments.

“To tackle the climate impact stemming from our value chain we need joint efforts and clear goals. We want to create support for the entire Swedish textile industry, both small and large enterprises, in taking climate action. We want to ensure Sweden leads the way and that the Swedish textile industry becomes climate positive well before 2050,” Fredrika Klarén, head of sustainability at KappAhl said.

“Climate change remains one of the greatest challenges of our time. Its consequences will affect our entire planet and everyone living on it. H&M have set the goal of becoming climate positive across our entire value chain by 2040. Our vision is to use our size and scale to lead the change towards a circular and renewable fashion industry, but no company or organisation can tackle those challenges alone. Together with the industry, stakeholders and business partners we can make a sustainable difference,” Felicia Reuterswaerd, head of sustainability at H&M Sweden said.

“At Peak Performance, we don’t just talk sustainability, we act on it. This network is all about climate action, real results and industry innovation. There is no time to delay. Join us and together we will amplify our impact while also ensuring our companies are prepared to succeed in this new business reality,” Åsa Andersson, CR & quality manager at Peak Performance said.

“The climate issue is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity, but unfortunately the time we have to solve this crisis is running out. It’s a difficult challenge that no actor can solve by itself, but we can influence and drive change together, companies and organisations both big and small,” Elin Larsson, Elco, former sustainability manager at Filippa K and advisor to STICA.
