To achieve its goal of becoming Climate Positive by 2040, luxury fashion house Burberry aims to slash carbon emissions across its extended supply chain by 46 per cent by 2030. The company also aims to become net-zero by 2040 by advancing low-carbon future solutions and investing in nature-based projects to protect natural ecosystems through its Burberry Regeneration Fund that supports several verified carbon offsetting and insetting projects. For its inaugural insetting project, the fashion house has joined forces with PUR Project to execute a regenerative agricultural program with wool producers in Australia.
Burberry plans to invest in programs that capture carbon from the atmosphere, climate resilience projects to help frontline communities adapt to the effects of climate change and advocate for a change in the fashion industry. As a part of its support of Fashion Avengers, it is helping Forest for Change, a UN Global Goals installation developed by British designer Es Devlin for the 2021 London Design Biennale, which involves transforming the courtyard of Somerset House in London into a forest with visitors having the opportunity to explore the 17 UN Global Goals until June 27.
Furthermore, it has launched a program with the Apparel Impact Institute to help Italian manufacturers make the fashion industry in Italy sustainable and in September of last year, it was the first luxury brand to issue a sustainability bond.
