One Ocean Foundation, in collaboration with SDA Bocconi Sustainability Lab and under the patronage of Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, continues to analyze the relationship between ocean sustainability and the business world, with a new report that deep-dives into a specific industrial sector: “Business for Ocean Sustainability: Focus – Fashion industry”.
This report is based on an in-depth analysis of the sustainability reports of 28 fashion companies, academic publications, statistical data, government reports and practitioner-based literature.
The fashion industry is one of the world’s biggest manufacturing industries and, at the same time, it is considered one of the most polluting industries in the world.
The study offers a snapshot of the fashion industry’s main pressures on the environment and, more specifically, on marine ecosystems, and provides a clear view of sustainable best practices along the value chain for sustainable transformation.
In addition, the report provides a view on the key issues companies in this sector need to acknowledge and act upon promptly.
We believe that with everyone’s contribution, from raw material producers to manufacturing companies, logistics companies and consumers, and with collaboration and awareness along the entire supply chain, it is possible to adopt best practices and solutions to mitigate pressures on coastal and marine ecosystems.
