How do we define Emissions?

Polluting emissions have long been a byproduct of the fashion and beauty industries. Carbon emissions are measured in CO2e, to determine the carbon dioxide equivalent that may be released from any human activity. The lower the CO2e, the less impact that action has on the environment.



The challenge


According to the UN Environment Programme, the fashion industry is responsible for between 8 and 10% of the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions



To keep global warming below the recommended 1.5℃ threshold, the industry needs to reduce its emissions by at least 50%. Instead, it is on track to double existing levels by 2050.




The goal

Convincing the industry of the need for drastic action when it comes to carbon emissions; educating and innovating around climate-offsetting initiatives, and supporting the development of machine learning and AR technology to achieve the goal of reducing polluting emissions. 


Toward’s Approach

As a multi-brand platform, we recognise that Toward’s biggest impact lies within our logistic network. Our climate action strategy involves investing in nature-based carbon offsetting projects, with a focus on supporting blue carbon and land regeneration projects, and supporting a carbon credits scheme via Pachama



Toward Brand Partners Commit To:


01

By the end of 2022, Toward will be accountable for 100% of the carbon emitted through our offices and logistic networks, offsetting it by purchasing Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and investing in Verified Carbon Standard offsets. 


02

We are committed to reducing our emissions across Scopes 1 and 2 by 2023, using renewable energies. To reduce Scope 3 emissions, Toward will set science-based targets in collaboration with our brand partners and drive logistic efficiencies via initiatives launching in 2022. 


03

Toward is committed to becoming climate positive by 2030, identifying potential opportunities for decarbonization and advising our brand partners on how to reduce emissions in their supply chains.
