As members of a global industry we have a responsibility for reducing our emission of carbon footprint. We believe that taking charge of our carbon footprint is not only a sustainability imperative but also a way to future-proof our business to be able to keep growing while respecting the boundaries of our planet.
For IC Group this entails focusing on the leverage points where we can make the biggest difference in terms on climate change. Among others, we use Environmental Profit and Loss accounting and The Higg Index to learn more about our biggest challenges, where we can leverage change and to help set industry benchmarks. Knowing the climate impacts throughout our value chain means we can make better decisions in the design phase and in the way we source products.
Finally we are aware that our actions alone only account for a minute share of our industry’s carbon footprint and we therefore participate actively though various organizations in making the fashion industry more sustainable.
