Carbon Neutrality: What Fashion Manufacturers Need to Know

The UN’s Climate Conference, COP26 may be over, but we know the real work to slow down global warming is just beginning.

With the Paris Agreement in place, countries across the world are running the race to slow down global warming and limit the temperature increase to preferably 1.5°C by 2050, compared to pre-industrial levels. In 2020 the signing members had to submit their national climate plans on reducing emissions in order to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

The fashion industry plays a significant role in supporting countries to meet this target – it has the power to step up and make powerful emission reductions.

In the near future, global buyers and brands will expect manufacturers to meet sustainable certifications – is your business ready to change the way it operates and provide full digital transparency?

Join Centric Software and expert guests for an insightful webinar about manufacturing’s role in the zero-carbon landscape.
