Confirming its commitment to environmental sustainability, Salvatore Ferragamo has joined 32 top fashion and textiles companies in signing the
Fashion Pact to set practical, tangible goals to reduce the environmental impact of this important industry.
Today, Salvatore Ferragamo’s CEO, Micaela le Divelec Lemmi, and representatives of another 32 brands signed the Fashion Pact during a meeting at the Elisee with French President Emmanuel Macron, who will present the initiative at the G7 Summit to be held in Biarritz from 24 to 26 August.
“We are proud to be part of this initiative. Thanks to the Fashion Pact, for the first time, major fashion industry players are joining forces to take on the largest environmental challenges of our century,” announced Ferruccio Ferragamo, President of Salvatore Ferragamo. “Meeting today’s needs without preventing future generations from meeting theirs is an immense challenge that we must all resolve together.”
The Fashion Pact goals are based on Science-Based Targets (STB) and focus on three key areas for saving the planet: stop global warming by creating and taking steps to achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050; restore biodiversity by safeguarding natural ecosystems; and reduce the fashion industry’s impact on the oceans through practical measures like gradually curtailing the use of single-use plastics.
