Read on to find out more about our involvement in the UN Climate Change Conference (COP25).
Taking place in Madrid at the Feria de Madrid, Condé Nast spoke at this year's UN Climate Change Conference (COP25).
Joining a lineup of climate change governors, activists and industry professionals, Condé Nast represented the fashion sector by taking part in this global forum. The committee spoke out about how important it is to sign the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action to make a positive impact on global sustainability.
The panel discussed the change and future direction of this industry-led commitment to its ultimate goal - to drive the fashion industry in achieving net-zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2050.
Condé Nast has joined a prolific list of industry players who all have the same drive and ambition to commit to this important initiative. They join Mark Parker, Nike's CEO; Karl-Johan Persson, H&M's CEO; Marco Gobbetti, Burberry's Executive Director; Victor del Pozo, El Corte Inglés's Executive Director, among others in recognising the systemic changes that are needed to achieve low-carbon solutions. By signing the charter, Condé Nast is apart of a movement to do their bit to tackle the climate crisis.
Alice Pilia, Senior Policy Adviser at Condé Nast added: "We need to promote and articulate the conversation between brands and consumers on sustainable fashion. At Condé Nast we recognize that we have this responsibility. And I believe that all the media related to the fashion industry play a double role.”
Condé Nast looks forward to working with other players in the fashion industry as part of the new signatory to strive towards safeguarding our planet. Take a look at the official Communique from the UN to find out more.
