Filthy Fashion Climate Scorecard

Monday November 04, 2019

We ranked the climate commitments of 45 top fashion companies.

We wanted to answer the question: which brands are leading on climate and which are still wearing last season's greenwash?

The companies ranked are all part of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, or the G7 Fashion Pact — including Levi’s, American Eagle, Burberry, H&M and Gap. 


Our report and scorecard shows that despite making commitments to be industry leaders by joining one or more of these global initiatives, the sustainability and climate pledges from top fashion companies fail to reach the level of emissions reduction needed to align with the UN Paris Agreement’s pathway to 1.5°C degrees of warming and avert the worst consequences of climate change — because they lack key commitments to transition factories and other parts of their global supply chains away from coal and other fossil fuels and on to renewable energy.
