32 global business leaders in the fashion and textile industry make pledges to protect the climate, oceans and biodiversity

On the eve of the G7 summit, which is taking place in Biarritz from 24 to 26 August 2019, the President of the Republic, together with Government ministers, has invited to his official residence, the Elysée Palace, the representatives of the 32 global fashion and textile brands that have joined forces with him in unveiling the Fashion Pact.


The global fashion industry is one of the largest, most dynamic and influential industries on the planet, generating over EUR 1.5 trillion a year in revenues. It is one of the most impactful and therefore should also have the power to play a pivotal role in leading the shift towards a more sustainable future.

We need to show that we can build coalitions of committed public and private leaders that can make a difference on these challenges by scaling new solutions and massively redirecting investment flows towards low-carbon, low biodiversity impacts and resilient development.

Multi-sectorial initiatives will be key to get results in order to minimize the environmental impacts fashion and textiles have across oceans, climate and biodiversity.
