Climate Change FAQs
The Paris Agreement is an international treaty on climate change. It aims to keep the overall increase in global temperatures below 2 degrees Celsius, with the hope of limiting it to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Scientists believe that these are the largest increases in global temperature that we could experience without causing catastrophic change to the Earth’s climate.
The fashion industry is responsible for 8-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. If it does not accelerate its response to climate change, by 2030 it will produce twice the volume of emissions required to align with Paris Agreement global warming targets.
