The Business Ambition 1.5°C Campaign is an urgent call-to-action for companies to set emissions reduction targets that are consistent with keeping global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. The campaign is led by the SBTi in partnership with the UN Global Compact and We Mean Business coalition.
Elevate and its brands including, American & Efird (A&E), Burlington, Cone Denim, Gutermann and Safety Components, continue to affirm and advance its commitment to setting science-based emissions reduction targets across the entire value chain that are consistent with keeping global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, the company said in a media release.
“Elevate is proud to be among leading companies who have committed to set science-based emissions reduction targets and are taking action to drive towards a more sustainable future,” said Jimmy Summers, chief sustainability officer for Elevate Textiles. “The need for business leaders to fight for a new-zero economy by 2050 is increasingly crucial and we are actively participating in global strategic initiatives including SBTi, Sustainable Apparel Coalition, ZDHC Programme and the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action among others.”
Elevate joined the SBTi in 2019. SBTi is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The SBTi defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting and independently assesses companies’ targets.
