  • Membership

    We do not have any specific requirements for membership. Everyone
    is welcome to apply, regardless of where they stand in their
    sustainability journey. Companies must simply be willing to commit
    their time and resources to our approach of collective industry
    transformation and engage in our actions.

    The Fashion Pact welcomes all types of companies within the fashion
    industry – fashion and textile brands, retailers and suppliers.

    Yes, all members are able to be part of projects and we encourage
    them to do so. Engagement and active participation are key to our
    collective success. New members will be introduced to our projects
    during the onboarding process to give a deeper understanding of our
    actions.

    There are many benefits to becoming a member of The Fashion Pact.
    You can find out more about them on our “Become A Member” page.

    Our fee covers the work carried out by our core team such as the general running of the organisation, implementing our common agenda, setting up projects and working with experts or consultants. It also covers Collective Movement resources such as providing member support, webinars, best practice sharing and communicating about our work.

    Members may be required to contribute additional finances and team capacity to take part in certain projects – our “Joint Actions”. Our membership fees cover the initial costs of researching, designing, building and educating members about an action. This extra contribution is required to keep the project running and ensure membership engagement. It also allows us to share both costs and learnings, making actions more financially feasible for individual companies and more impactful for the industry as a whole.

    Payment can only be made by bank transfer. Once you have been
    approved for membership and been onboarded by The Fashion Pact,
    the finance team will send you an invoice. Our membership is
    calendar-based so if you join mid-year, you will pay a pro-rata fee until
    the following year.

    In order to remain fair to all members, our fees are non-negotiable.

    Membership applications can only be made using our online
    application form. You can find out more about the process here.

    Yes, you will have access to our members only platform, The Fashion
    Pact Connect, which contains useful resources and tools plus content
    about our projects.

    Yes! We actively encourage our members to engage and help shape
    projects. If you have an idea that could have a large-scale, positive
    impact on the fashion industry, we would love to hear from you.

    Setting GHG baseline emissions for scope 1, 2, and 3, as well as calculating GHG emissions via a robust and recognized methodology are the starting steps for member’s journeys to the decarbonisation of the textile industry.

  • General inquiries

    Members are selected to be on the committees based on diversity,
    market activity, company size and geographical area. 1/3 of the
    members change every three years. This process allows us to have a
    fair governing body that represents all of our members, evolves to
    bring fresh perspectives and lets every member take a leading role.

    The full list of our current members can be found on our homepage.

    Our partners and their different roles are detailed on our Ecosystem
    page. Click here to find out more.

    When companies join the association, they have to commit to our common agenda by signing up to The Fashion Pact targets. We measure members’ progress against our shared targets to track our advancement internally. We do this on a yearly basis in partnership with Textile Exchange in an effort to align with industry efforts and incorporate our reporting in the Textile Exchange Materials Benchmark. Read more here.

    In parallel to individual members’ efforts, The Fashion Pact drives initiatives in areas where collective action is needed to reach our common targets. We initiate joint actions with our members that relate directly to these targets. A few examples:

    Striving for continuous improvement, we are actively developing new approaches to strengthen reporting and accountability. These will be introduced in 2024.

    We are mindful of confidentiality and antitrust rules: we make sure all discussions, interactions, projects we drive are respectful of these rules.

    Under these rules, list of topics members are not allowed to discuss include:

    • Price, discounts, profit margins or terms and conditions of sale;
    • Agreement to raise, lower or hold present or future price levels;
    • Allocation of territories, markets or customers;
    • Restrictions on production, boycotts or refusals to deal;
    • Selection, rejection or termination of customers or suppliers;
    • Current and future strategic plans;

    Any other topic that could have the effect of restricting or distorting competition.

    The Fashion Pact succeeded in creating a safe space for members to interact in compliance with antitrust rules.

    In addition, all members and suppliers we work with have to sign our Code of Ethics and Antitrust code of good conduct.

    We are a small team with limited opportunities. Any job
    announcements will be shared on our LinkedIn.
