Carbon off-setting is not a quick fix for fashion
Updated: Feb 22
According to cult brand Reformation, being ‘carbon neutral’ is ‘one of the easiest things we do to be sustainable’. H&M has set an ambitious target to make the first two tiers of its supply chain ‘carbon neutral’ by 2030. Gabriela Hearst became the first brand to stage a carbon-neutral fashion show during Spring Summer 2020 New York Fashion Week, followed by Burberry in London. Gucci declared its operations, supply chains and its Milan Fashion Week show carbon neutral.
