The Fashion Pact, a global initiative in the fashion and textile industry, brings together luxury brands, suppliers, and distributors with a shared commitment to environmental sustainability.
It is launched by French President Emmanuel Macron and Kering Chairman and CEO François-Henri Pinault.
The Fashion Pact’s key goals revolve around three areas: combating global warming, preserving biodiversity, and protecting the oceans.
With its mission presented at the G7 Summit in Biarritz, the Fashion Pact has gained momentum, uniting CEOs from leading fashion and textile companies worldwide.
