The goal of the Textiles Programme is to drive the transition of the global textiles supply chain to more sustainable practices as outlined with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Climate agreement and the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. Before 2050, the global textiles industry should have achieved net-zero GhG-emissions ahead of the UNFCCC’s Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Change. The charter aims to achieve net-zero by 2050; minimise the use of freshwater and the production of wastewater and continue to focus on reducing microfibre waste.
