UNFCCC Fashion Industry Invites Governments to Collaborate on Climate Action on a call to action PUBLIC COMMUNIQUE

MADRID, 9 December 2019

As member of the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, we are stepping up to call for immediate climate action, recognizing that the climate crisis is not just a business and economic risk, but a humanitarian risk. While most Fashion corporates are now determined to be better for the environment and working to minimize our collective impact, it’s not nearly enough. Given our climate emergency, it’s not enough for individual companies to buy offsets, put solar on roofs, or even to create internal carbon taxes or transition to recycled products. Rethinking entire business models is necessary, but also insufficient. Our climate crisis requires action by policymakers to align incentives and to create a level playing field or a just transition to a circular economy. It’s time to use our voice as business leaders to make that call to action to policy makers to act.

Sixty-five-year-old Doriano Mattellone from the sleepy Italian region of Friuli Venezia Giulia is not your typical trendsetter.

The result is a hingeless one-piece frame that relies on the natural pliability of wood for comfort and fit. For this season, a hinged unisex collection – W-Eye H – was introduced,…
