Fashion + Fact: getting closer to the data
28 September 2020
We are exploring more sophisticated carbon accounting measures and are working with expert partners to make sure we can play our part in reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in line with the Paris Agreement goals – limiting global warming to less than 2°C above pre-industrial levels and aiming to limit warming to 1.5°C.
We plan to track our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions so we can better understand our environmental footprint, and we aim to set reduction targets in line with the Paris Agreement by 2021.
As part of our ongoing commitment to change, we want to dig deeper into the business of our emissions to drive better future decisions. We take great pride in the fact that our product is built to last, but we also want them to make you feel good. We have a responsibility to understand, assess and manage all the impacts of our business, and we have been busily working on innovative new materials so we can leave an even lighter footprint on the planet.
Targets are, however, not new news. UGG is part of the Deckers family of brands, and together we have been members of the United Nations Global Compact since 2016, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative with over 9,500 participating companies. Read more about our existing targets and progress against them.
By working to these targets, we will be doing our part to help bring environmental stability to the earth. This is an ongoing process and as we keep taking steps towards these over the coming months and years, we will continue share our progress with you.
