Fossil-free Fashion Scorecard 2021
Tuesday August 24, 2021

From the carbon-intensive energy used to power the processing of its materials and manufacturing of garments, shoes and other goods, to the raw materials such as plastic fibers used to make its products, the industry’s addiction to fossil fuels is at the core of its environmental sustainability problem.

The most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report issued a “code red” for humanity and painted an alarming picture of the future of our climate if the world fails to drastically reduce its reliance on fossil fuels. As one of the biggest drivers of climate pollution, fashion companies must move decisively to break their dependence on fossil fuels, spurring the rapid transition to renewable energy and fossil free fabrics we need to safeguard a livable future.
