Primark’s commitment to environmental sustainability continues!
In another such effort, the Irish fashion label has now joined United Nation’s Fashion Charter with the mission to bring down greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent by 2030.
Joining the Fashion Charter will help the retailer tackle emissions across its complete value chain – including those beyond its own operations – constituting the huge majority of its carbon footprint.
However, Primark has said that it has already implemented several processes in its manufacturing and distribution operations to identify and minimise carbon footprint.
Katharine Stewart, Primark Ethical Trade and Environmental Sustainability Director, said that Primark is elated to join UN’s Fashion Charter and is committed to cut down gas emissions across all its value chain.
It’s noteworthy that UN’s Fashion Charter is recognised for its net-zero ambition and for its endeavour to bring down greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent in next 10 years.
Primark has been proactive by implementing SAC’s Higg Facility Environmental Module tool in all the factories of its suppliers to monitor the use of energy as well as carbon emissions.
In addition to doubling the products made from recycled items to 40 million, Primark has been actively involved in eco-friendly practices and joining UN’s Fashion Charter is another major achievement for the retailer.
