Climate change, resource depletion and the destruction of the natural environment are existential crises for humankind. The fashion and textiles industry has a significant adverse environmental and social impact and is cited as the joint third highest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHGs) globally. Urgency to mitigate climate change has never been more important, with the industry facing unprecedented challenges to serve citizens’ needs whilst reducing environmental impact. The future of fashion will have to radically transform as the entire value chain shifts towards sustainable and responsible practices in a resource-constrained world.
