As we approach the midpoint of the 2030 Agenda to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, the creation of partnerships to create transformative action is more imperative than ever.
Specifically, within the Fashion and Lifestyle sectors, there is potential for impact given the industry’s crucial role in climate action.
The Conscious Fashion and Lifestyle Network was established in 2019 to bring together industry stakeholders, companies, and governments from the sector to drive urgent action to sustainability, with the SDGs as a guiding framework.
The Sustainable Textile Manufacturing company, and CFL Network Member, Lenzing, sets an excellent example to industry stakeholders by taking revolutionary steps towards climate action by creating sustainable fibers.
In their recent report, Lenzing details how they have continued to drive the industry's transition towards circularity. They are working with partners on processing over 100,000 tons of textile waste by 2028, pioneering the transition to a new and futuristic circular fashion industry.
Over the past year, they have been able to reduce carbon emissions by 18%. Lenzing has seen a staggering growth over the past two years with the aim to herald the end of the fossil age for all organic chemicals and materials by 2050.
Such efforts by companies like Lenzing offer hope for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda, but a collective effort is required to truly ensure a sustainable future for all.
