Neonyt, is the international mecca for fashion and sustainability with innovation at its core. This year’s three-day extravaganza was held during Berlin Fashion Week, for industry friends to collaborate and focus on the big questions that can lead to positive change in the world of fashion. On January 14, Harold Weghorst, Lenzing’s Vice President of Global Brand Management, spoke in an expert discussion panel at Neonyt - “SDGs X Fashion – The UN’s Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action”, which contains the vision to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
2020 is the year that many businesses chose to pick for their sustainably goals, as such it is a critical year for the sustainable fashion community. As a signatory on the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, Lenzing is striving hard to be the first carbon neutral fiber producer in the world and reduce its CO2 emissions drastically over the coming years.
Alongside key stakeholders, experts and other leaders within the fashion industry, the panel shared their motives for signing the charter along with the perceived challenges to come. It’s clear that to deliver on our promises enshrined in the charter, collaboration is vital for advances in sustainability – together we can achieve more to protect our planet and make a more eco-friendly environment for all.
