François-Henri Pinault and Emmanuel Macron
August 2019 in Paris - Jean-François/Modds for Kering
The Fashion Pact was born out of the recognition that only collective action can change the environmentally harmful impact of the highly fragmented fashion industry.
Launched as an initiative by French President Emmanuel Macron, The Fashion Pact began as a call to action to fashion CEOs to rally and build a courageous collective to address the industry’s environmental impacts. The pact was then presented to the Heads of State at the G7 Summit in Biarritz in 2019 and connected to One Planet Summit, a multi-stakeholder platform committed to address environmental issues.
We have since grown to become the largest CEO-led initiative for sustainability in the fashion industry.
We are CEO-led
The Fashion Pact is governed by a Steering Committee composed of 16 elected CEOs. Together they set the strategic vision and drive collective action. This top-level leadership approach is fundamental to bringing the necessary changes across the industry.
In addition, any CEO member can volunteer to be an Ambassador for our Joint Actions. Their role is to support the growth, evolution & success of the projects through concrete actions in operations and communications.
Each decision made by the Steering Committee is informed by the 25 Chief Sustainability Officers who make up the Operations Committee. These experts make strategic and practical propositions, implement the chosen actions and guide working groups.
