Pattern adheres to the onu's"Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action"

July 2019
Pattern is the first company to join the UNFCCC’s Fashion for Global Climate Action initiative as a signatory to the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action.
The Fashion for Global Climate Action initiative calls on the Fashion industry to acknowledge the contribution of the sector to climate change and our responsibility to strive towards climate neutrality for a safer planet.
By signing the Charter, Pattern has demonstrated the commitment to playing its part to ensure the fashion sector is on the path to a low-carbon future.
In line with the principles and targets enshrined in the Charter and the aims of the Paris Agreement, Pattern commits to a 30% GHG emissions reduction by 2030 and will strive to decarbonization of the production phase, selection of climate friendly and sustainable materials, low-carbon transport, improved consumer dialogue and awareness, work with the financing community and policymakers to catalyze scalable solutions, and explore circular business models.
UNFCCC Executive Secretary, Patricia Espinosa explained that the fashion industry is in a unique position to lead change in the world. “The fashion industry is always two steps ahead when it comes to defining world culture, so I am pleased to see it now also leading the way in terms of climate action.”
This is a race we can—and must—win.

As first Italian company to join the initiative, the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat sent a significant letter to Pattern to express its appreciation for the commitment.
