Fashion industry failing to meet green targets

Fashion’s biggest firms are making slow progress in meeting promises to improve their environmental and social impact, according to a damning sustainability report released Monday. “Many of fashion’s biggest companies still don’t know or don’t disclose where their products come from, and the further down the supply chain you go, the more opaque things become,” the report said. Fewer than half were found to have clear goals on reducing the use of water and hazardous chemicals, and only four had a time-bound target to replace oil-based polyester—the most commonly-used fabric in the world—with recycled alternatives. “Environmental sustainability is bigger than any one brand, supplier or retailer. We all have to work together.”
