Today with The Fashion Pact, the fashion industry has the opportunity to pioneer sector-wide transformation towards a more sustainable future.

The Fashion Pact is a global coalition of 70+ companies in the fashion and textile sector who have committed to utilising the power of the collective to accelerate change in three environmental areas: climate, biodiversity, and oceans. Uniquely, The Fashion Pact is a CEO-led, action-based non-profit organisation funded by its members, leveraging joint action to achieve and scale impact.

The Fashion Pact has grown by 200% in the past 2 years creating a community of over 200 brands, representing one third of the global fashion industry. In light of this growth, Acre is delighted to support The Fashion Pact on a number of key hires over the course of 2023, which will play a critical role in the scaling of the organisation and its impact on transforming the fashion industry as a whole. The Fashion Pact is growing its secretariat in Paris.

Today, the fashion industry has the opportunity to lead a shift towards a more sustainable future. We can set an example for how companies can work together and take action on the crucial issues of climate change, biodiversity and protecting the world’s oceans. Collaboration is vital if we are to develop a truly sustainable industry, and to do so as quickly and effectively as possible.”
