Fast fashion waste to reach 134 million tons by 2030: UN Charter on Climate Action


A statement from the United Nations Charter on Climate Action projects, waste from the fast fashion industry is predicted to reach 134 million tons by 2030. The industry has committed to achieve zero emissions by 2050 to tackle climate change.

The UN climate summit first inaugurated the fashion charter COP24 in Katowice, Poland in December 2018, then updated it as COP26 in Glasgow, UK, last November 2021.

The charter focuses on the impact of the apparel industry on the environment, as well as its role in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. It also urges the industry to adapt climate change in a systematic and in-depth manner.

The apparel industry has a unique opportunity to control climate action using its collective power to transform the industry into low-carbon technologies and products through the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, says NiclasSyenningsen, UN Global Climate Action Manager.

The Charter also aims to introduce real actions to deal with environmental impacts that occur.
