ASOS to “embrace circular systems” with new Net Zero plans
Online fashion retailer ASOS has unveiled its plans to reach Net Zero by 2030.
The firm has announced its new Fashion with Integrity (“FWI”) 2030 programme, laying out a plan to achieve a new set of ESG (environmental, social and governance) goals by 2030.
Under the plan, the group has made a commitment to achieve Net Zero across the full value chain by 2030.
Nick Beighton, CEO, commented: “At ASOS we are proud to work in fashion. Ours is an industry that brings joy, gives people confidence, and provides millions of jobs around the world.
“We are proud that over the last decade we have been among those leading our industry when it comes to responsibility and sustainability. Our FWI programme has been a cornerstone of everything we do and has helped us deliver positive benefits for people and minimise our impact on the planet.
He added: “Now we are pleased to announce our FWI 2030 programme and stretching ambitions. Achieving these will make us a Net Zero business that embraces more circular systems and uses more sustainable and recycled materials in our products and packaging.
“Our progress will be driven by a more diverse team with equity and inclusion at its heart, leading a business where transparency and human rights remain central to our approach. And, as we continue our journey to becoming a Truly Global Retailer, our new goals will ensure that we do so sustainably and responsibly.”
